Franz Kafka's writings are characterised through an severe sensitivity manifested in absurdity, alienation, and gallows humor. those specific collections of brief items, a rustic healthcare professional (1919) and A starvation Artist (1924), newly translated through Thor Polson, signify later works within the corpus. Poems and Songs of affection is a translation of the gathering Piyyutim ve-Shirei Yedidot by means of Georg Mordechai Langer. released in Prague in 1929, it includes an elegy to Langer's buddy and mentor Franz Kafka, and different brazenly homo-romantic poems. This collaborative translation through Elana and Menachem Wolff brings the interesting paintings of Langer--poems in addition to an essay on Kafka--to the English-reading public for the 1st time, and sheds gentle on a hitherto unexamined relationship.
