This book emerged from a life-long study of the works of Franz Kafka. It was created during my years of study in Israel with Hugo Bergman and Felix Weltsch. Kafka was never an object of study. He was a spiritual companion who never left my literary and poetical studies. He was never an object of knowledge. His paradoxes and parables permeated the logic of writing. Kafka is a companion who is with you and away from you. His presence and his absence guided this book. It is an unfinished book.
