By Franz Kafka
Kafka first made the acquaintance of Milena Jesenska in 1920 while she used to be translating his early brief prose into Czech, and their dating quick constructed right into a deep attachment. Such was once his feeling for her that Kafka confirmed her his diaries and, in doing so, laid naked his center and his moral sense. Milena, for her half, was once passionate and intrepid, cool and clever in her judgements yet reckless whilst her feelings have been concerned. Kafka as soon as defined her as residing her lifestyles 'so intensely all the way down to such depths'. If she did endure via him, it used to be a part of her nice urge for food for all times. notwithstanding whereas from time to time Milena's 'genius for living' gave Kafka new existence, it finally exhausted him, and their dating used to be to final little over years. Milena died in 1944 by the hands of the Nazis - those letters are a relocating checklist in their courting.
