Summary / Abstract:

ENJust as fascinating is Erik Larsen’s exploration of the interpretive possibilities of Levinas’s early philosophy for Franz Kafka’s work. Larsen illustrates how Blanchot’s readings of Kafka provide a productive link between Levinas’s ily a and three stories by Kafka— The Trial, “The Burrow,” and “In the Penal Colony.” The possibility of reading Kafka’s work in the context of Levinas’s ethics is also briefly considered.
