Kaj Bernh. Genell : On Western Culture


Ban Russia     Ban Israel

"Fiction shows us enormously interesting things about humans,
things that - paradoxically - are much more interesting than humans themselves. ."

Kaj Bernh. Genell - On Western Culture


What is Unique about Kafka?
Kafka uses the High-Romantic Ästhetik des Schwebens and without this reference to the Romantic Tradidition, there would have been no Kafkaesque. What - then - is meant by the term "Kafkaesque"? Kafka - a Freudo-Structuralist Analysis is an analysis with special regard to the concept of the Kafkaesque.

Genell´s Kafka - a Freudo-Structuralist Analysis displays a model, together with a biographical survey and a historical perspective on possible influences, that, reversely, forms a hermeneutic, actual explanation to these features, as well as to what is denoted by the concept, from the perspective of a dynamic contextual center, explained in a triplicit model .

Writing the Fiction of Tomorrow By editing his latest Philosophical work, “Writing the Fiction of Tomorrow”, Genell elaborated in detail several of his favorite themes on Myth Critique and Irony Theory in order to make them applicable for contemporary Authors.

This would much later result in “Kafka och det Kafkaeska” (2018), an essay in Swedish on the Literary Technique of Kafka, later published in English as “Kafka – a Freudo-Structuralist Analysis” (2021).
