Example text

In mise-en-abyme fashion, the first attempt to do this involves the interiority precisely of one of the stand-ins for such a judgment: Goethe. ” Apparently, Pollak has harshly criticized this “nationalist” exploitation of Goethe, and especially of what he calls an Allerheiligste, a “holy of holies”: the master’s study. Pollak’s letters are not extant, but we can infer these points from Kafka’s response (dated August 24, 1902), which comes a few paragraphs after the torture-desk mentioned above (an auspicious opening to this aggressive letter), in which Kafka mocks Pollak for the “conceits and schoolboy ideas” that have led him to criticize the museum in a way that “seems to me totally twisted and wrong” (LFr 3).

A brief sketch of its trajectory will allow us to see more clearly how Kafka negotiates the conditions that tightly structure the very cohesive set of judgment narratives, these “successful” narratives that threaten to trap, and to kill, even as they vibrate with an unknown freedom. As a shift of emphasis from the visual to the vocal, this movement might also be described, in parallel and summary fashion, as a shift from “theory” to thought, a displacement from the “contemplation” (Betrachtung) with which Kafka began toward an unaccountable dimension of the voice on which his final story (“Josefine the Singer”) ruminates.

From the beginning, then, the problem is how to figure the rich and authentic interiority that must be brought before such a judge. In mise-en-abyme fashion, the first attempt to do this involves the interiority precisely of one of the stand-ins for such a judgment: Goethe. ” Apparently, Pollak has harshly criticized this “nationalist” exploitation of Goethe, and especially of what he calls an Allerheiligste, a “holy of holies”: the master’s study.
