These letters are heartbreaking and deeply moving. They are written by a great genius who is speaking to a woman he longs for and yet knows he cannot have. They are in one sense a study in torment and anxiety, and another a literary document of great power and beauty. Milena was a great soul a translator of Kafka who understood that she was connected with an extraordinary genius. The impossibility of their love and yet the great sense of meaning in their meetings make these letters so powerful and great. Kafka could describe the most everyday reality and turn it into a work of wonder. And this too in relation to his own feelings toward Milena.Was this review helpful?
