$50.00 (10% off for members)

One of Franz Kafka's most powerful yet enigmatic works, Letter To My Father, is the topic of our discussion.  We will think about Elias Canetti's assertion that the book is "autobiographical by indirection;"  we will discuss, of course, what is known about Kafka's actual relationship with his father and how different biographies address this;  we will talk about the various translations of this work; we will talk about the work in relation to Kafka's notebooks and recorded conversations with friends; we will discuss the work as an autonomously bold act of narrative imagination.  Of course, this all will end in an open discussion. Monday, November 9, from 6 to 8:00 p.m. Online Class.
