Is Kafka kafkaesque?

We’ve had a discussion on this before: Translating Kafka / Kafka auf Englisch (see the comments too).

Now, in a post on the more serious subject of Shhh… – The Justice and Security Bill, introducing secret hearings in the UK, Adam Wagner links to a video on the same topic.

Meanwhile, Katy at love german books, in Michelle Woods on Re-Translating Kafka, writes about translating Kafka and Michelle Woods’ forthcoming book on translating Kafka, with a link to an interview with Michelle Woods, among other things about helping American students to understand the humour in Kafka (and I didn’t realize David Foster Wallace, whose magnum opus I threw away after reading it, taught Kafka).
