Academician Writes about Franz Kafka's Porn Collection

Franz Kafka is for many the symbol of an anxious Centre-European genius and also an evergreen means of advertising, which portraits him like an out-of-this-world persona. There have been many studies written on him, however the one called Excavating Kafka is not going to disappear easily.

The scholar and an author of comedies James Hawes (1960) writes there about the extensive Kafka’s pornographic collection, hidden in the house of his parents. “Those are no beach postcards” Hawes states for British Times. “It as regular pornography, some shoots are hard, even not very nice” The German list Spiegel talks about lesbians and animals.

The author, who teaches creative writing on Oxford underlines, his book is not supposed to dishonour Franz Kafka, the author of Process or Metamorphosis, he just wants to present a more humane picture of him, without the imaginative aura of a saint, which has been created after his death.
