STUC,  333 Woodlands Rd, Glasgow G3 6NG

22nd October, 2014

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) is rightly regarded as one of the most important writers of the twentieth century. His influence extends across the modern and contemporary novel, cinema, theatre, radio, dance and other art forms. The prevalence of the term Kafkaesque underlines his continuing cultural impact. The writers he has influenced include Albert Camus, Jorge Luis Borges and James Kelman. In cinema his influence can be seen in the work of film makers such as Orson Welles and David Lynch.

In the year of the ninetieth anniversary of his death, this tribute night will feature readings of works by Kafka: fragments, short stories, and extracts from novels. In addition, works inspired by Kafka and written by creative writing students of the Centre for Open Studies will be premiered. The evening will also feature music and discussion.
