kafka, franz

kafka, franz in Culture
Kafka, Franz [(kahf-kuh)]

An Austrian author of the early twentieth century. His works, written in German, have a surreal, dreamlike quality; they frequently concern characters who are lonely, tormented, and victimized and who represent the frustrations of modern life. He is the author of “The Metamorphosis” and The Trial.

Note: A “kafkaesque” situation is both bizarre and frustrating.
