About this product
- DescriptionThis work explores an original interpretation of Franz Kafka's vel, Der Process (The Trial), which argues that the vel is in the form of a series of dreams, dreamt by a man who has been stricken with a serious illness. The thesis presents detailed evidence to show that the vel is intended to be a transcript of the dreams of the protagonist, Josef K., and that K. is suffering from tuberculosis, a fact which both gives rise to and shapes his dreams. The thesis also discusses the special role of art, literature and colour, which have a table effect on the way the illness manifests itself in the dreams. In arguing this interpretation the author explodes a number of myths about the vel, t least that the world of Josef K., rather than being dreary and mochrome, is full of beauty and colour.
- Author BiographyBarbara McKenzie has recently completed a doctoral thesis on Kafka's The Trial, the content of which forms the basis for this work. The author is a graduate of Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand, and Lancaster University, England.
