Perspektiver på Kafka

Andreas Westmark Gajhede & Tobias Ebert Ingemann Hansen

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This paper examines the themes of guilt, doubt and alienation in the 1925 novel The Trial by Franz Kafka. Main character, Josef K., is arrested and faced with a trial that to him seems incomprehensible - finally being executed. To make sense of the heavy themes, this paper applies writings of existential philosophers, Søren Kierkegaard and Friedrich Nietzsche, in an attempt to pinpoint Franz Kafka’s - and Josef K.’s - position in a modern society void of higher meaning.
