“do you realize that people don’t know how to read kafka, simply because they
want to decipher him? instead of letting themselves be carried away by his
unequaled imagination, they look for allegories – and come up with nothing but
clichés: life is absurd (or it is not absurd), god is beyond reach (or within reach),
etc. you can understand nothing about art, particularly modern art, if you do not
understand that imagination is a value in itself.”
