I wrote:

Kafka was an absurdist, a position antithetic to Marxism, which declares specific knowledge of where history is going. The Frankfurt school despised the pulps and the hardboiled and noir genre as lowbrow capitalism.

  And you're saying this why? I don't get what you're getting at.

********** Somebody mentioned that Kafka didn't get good press with the Marxists. I was simply making a suggestion as to why that was so. Or at least I think that's what I had in mind. I've about half-way forgotten the thread by now, Juri. Sorry.
