The Castle: A Satanic Abode

Afrouz yari


The castle is an endless novel, which was written in 1922 by Frantz Kafka. Kafka was perhaps the first writer to creative of Satan in the globe of the perfectly ordinary. The novel has to be seen as some allegories of Satan. Satan has traditionally been portrayed in terms of the extraordinary and associated with disruption of order and radical otherness .Satan is traditionally attributed to the other. In Kafka’s The Castle, the protagonist does not ultimately succeed in his act of entering the castle. In this novel K’s main character, that is divested from the object of his desire. In The Castle (1922), the physical palace, as well as its system, portrayed an unsettling combination of omnipotence and banality. The concepts of this matter, as well as the sociological and metaphysical scope of their fanciful finding of Satan are the subject matter of the present paper.
