PETRO RYCHLO - The reception of Kafka in German-language poetry from Bukovina

Aug 15, 2024 | 07:30 PM

All over the world the year 2024 is considered a Franz Kafka Year - the 100th anniversary of the death of the most important representative of European literary modernism. The work of German-Jewish poets from Bukovina forms an interesting chapter in the early reception of Kafka. Using the example of the Kafka reflections of the Chernivtsi poets Rose Ausländer, Alfred Kittner, Paul Celan and Alfred Gong, the lecture by Ukrainian literature professor Petro Rychlo on August 15 offers a fascinating cross-section of the poetic appropriation of Kafka's work on the distant fringes of the German-speaking world.
