Kafka's Dancing Man Drawing
Kafka’s Dancing Man

It seems that Kafka made an argument for disallowing illustrations and drawings to be associated with his writing. By emphasizing the power of visual imagery he suggested the strong effect such visuals would have on the imagery in his writing. It makes sense- a writer may want the imagery of their words to be evoked independently of suggestion. To read this essay from the Philip Oltermann at The Guardian and see a few more drawings, click the link below.
