I have loved this superb novel for a very very long time Perhaps you too have shrouded yourself in the endless folds of its inner mystery and adventure and lost yourself within itBut WHY does it always seem to us so frustrating So unsatisfying in the end Is it because the Land Surveyor never gets to his CastleWell maybe there’s a DEEPER reason why he never arrives something endemic to the functioning or malfunctioning of our ordinary mindsLet’s try to FIND OUT what it isNow some writers and Kafka is one of them seem to catch us unawares as if they’re calling out to us from a higher plane of existence Edwin Muir the Scottish expatriate poet who first ´discovered’ Kafka for us anglophones in the 1930’s was sure that the dear misunderstood Franzel had an armlock on some Hidden TruthBut what if this key to Kafka is that he was caught in the complex to and fro ing of Hegel’s Contrite Consciousness the tempestuous Ethical Plane of existence according to Kierkegaard And what happens when the human mind morphs from the everyday sphere of living for the day to a scary Moral SphereIt can be like Freud’s The Schreber Case After all there’s no justification for moral judgements in an amoral world is there So we’re automatically viewed as a stranger Once you take sides Sonny you’re on your own The mind tends to play tricks on us at that pointAnd once challenged and stopped dead in its tracks the mind starts to replay its key judgements and obsessions ad infinitum as Kafka does here almost in anticipation of Freud’s example Schreber but only neurotically and not psychoticallyBut hey you rise above the herd and it ain’t gonna be easy Let me put it from another angle did Frodo chicken out from his uest Not on your life Though like us he retreated to the false comfort of his Ring now and then and paid for it heavilyJust as Kafka and Schreber take comfort in their obsessive disorders Though Frodo’s fix is a VERY dangerous narcissism PowerBut Kafka IS calling us from a higher plane because the Castle itself is theologically symbolic of a Higher RealityJust as Mordor is the hobbits’ Armageddon and Gandalf is their Guardian Angel along with the elfin folkEven though that wonderful symbolic reality has now become shadowy and ungrounded in the crass garish light of the daily news and though heads of state now seem utterly self seeking making our Land Surveyor’s reasoning utterly nonsensical to them we now all have to live in an Upside Down Kingdom the postmodern mindsetThat’s a fact of our lives for us modern ethically minded seekers for we uixotes are now hopelessly pitted against powerful electronic windmillsOkay then Had Kafka lived longer would he have written in a HAPPY ENDING for the poor Land Surveyor Would he have entered the Castle finallyI think soBecause all it takes is that one unforgettable moment when at the end of all our wanderings we hear the magical voice of the “Woodthrush calling through the Fog”That moment when it finally dawns on us that there’s a much BIGGER story going on here than our own tiny story of dazed frustration as we trudge endlessly with the Land Surveyor through the snowdrifts of an Eastern European villageLike in Kafka’s AmerikaThe bigger story of RedemptionFor it’s not about us It’s about something BiggerKafka made this clear in a short story called Before the Law only once surreptitiously published in his lifetime In Before the Law a man ceases to believe because he can’t even believe in the Law So if he can’t believe in the Gospel he loses the right to enter through the Gate of HeavenSo the man always starts again And TRIES again And continually starts again at the beginning simply because he now no longer believesWhen it’s time for him to die the Gate is Closed WhyBecause he has given up trying believing AND BEGINNING AGAIN And accepting the Law as absurdly God’s willIn Amerika though Kafka comes to see that Salvation is a Free GiftAnd it’s only because he has given up hope completely that the Gate the Castle or the Gift of Grace of the Law is Now closed to himUntil he starts over but NOW it’s too lateOr WOULD be too late WITHOUT GRACEOr without the LAWFor to Kafka himself at the end Grace now ABOUNDEDHe now had kept his part of the bargain always trying unlike the Land Surveyor no matter how hard it became to believe and BITE THE BULLET OF THE HARD AND FAST TRUTH of the LAWAND SO THE CASTLE GATES SWUNG OPEN

Relentless unavailing struggle with an inscrutable authority in order to gain access to the Castle Scrupulously following the fluidity and breathlessness of the sp. It was the start of the year when NK picked up The Castle by Kafka a book he had tried to read a lot of times but failed in the past; but now he was full of a new resolution that he will finish it this time He had hardly read a few pages however when his wife called him We need to withdraw some money from the bank she said There are a lot of bills to be paid and some of them are long overdueCan't we do it online NK grumbled No said his wife The grocer and the vegetable peddler do not carry card swiping machines NK set off to the bank annoyedAt the bank he tried to withdraw money first from the ATM and when that proved unsuccessful from the bank personally; but the teller told him I am afraid there is a technical issue sir you Aadhar number which is linked your account has some problem so I am unable to complete the transactionOh said NK What is the problem I can't see that from here sir said the teller I think you will have to log in to the site with your ID and check yourself Can I do it from here NK asked No sir our bank policy prevents us from allowing outsiders to use our computers I am sorry sir The teller repliedNK returned home Got the money asked his wife No There is a problem with my Aadhar number and I need to correct it online NK said His wife replied Well you can't do it from here There is a power shutdown until the eveningI will do it on my laptop NK said and went to his office room But the laptop would not power up he suddenly remembered that the battery was dead and had to be replaced He called his computer serviceman I guess you will have to bring it here sir said that gentleman Today all my assistants are on leave and there is no one to send Accordingly NK went outside to catch an auto rickshawHe was standing on the roadside for uite some time without success when a neighbour chanced by What are you waiting for he asked An auto said NK Well you won't get any today There's a lightning bandh declared by one of the political parties the Congress BJP or CPIM I don't know which to protest against a killing somewhere in the North Said the neighbour Well in that case I better go homeNK said The neighbour concurredBy this time it had grown uite dark NK wondered where the day had gone As he went into his office room he saw The Castle lying unread on his table I will definitely read it tomorrow he said

Das SchloßArsely punctuated original manuscript Mark Harman’s new translation reveals levels of comedy energy and visual power previously unknown to English language reade. “Now what could have attracted me to this desolate land other than the desire to stay” In The Castle Kafka’s protagonist ludicrously struggles to gain entrance to and make sense of the Castle an entity which is effectively unattainable and incomprehensibleReading the book felt like coming home one day to discover that all of your belongings have been shifted 5 centimeters to the left with the exception of one lone grimy spoon Nearly everything was askew to some degree This book was so painfully well done that reading it often made me ueasy My brain got itchy and suirmy and fussy It set my teeth on edge It was like wading through molasses of dubious origin and hue It was claustrophobic and smeary That said it managed to make me laugh uite a bit too It seemed to fit the definition of grotesue rather well comically or repulsively ugly or distorted See also many of the synonyms for grotesue malformed deformed misshapen misproportioned twisted and gnarled Bottom line In my opinion The Castle was conceptually brilliant but the actual reading of this intense novel was often than not a vividly dreadful experience as was no doubt intended I was awfully fond of those assistants though
