After promising his dear friend Franz Kafka (who was on his death bed) that he wouldn’t publish his writing, Max Brod waited for almost a decade before publishing all of his work. The importance of Kafka’s writings vs. The promise to a dear friend.
We owe Max Brod for his painful understanding of Kafka’s ultimate importance: The world wouldn’t be the same without Kafkaesque in its lexicon.
