"Based upon his own impressions of Brazil and personal experiences there, the author portrays a vast, inviting, fertile land with seemingly endless resources; a history devoid of major wars, in which all conflicts are resolved in a spirit of conciliation; the type of society for which he himself longed, composed of multinational elements that combine to form a harmonious whole free of racial tensions, strife, and destructive tendencies." "All of these and more contribute to his vision of an almost utopian place that seems to stand apart from the ills of the modern world while providing refuge from its hostility and hope that mankind can find a more peaceful direction in the future."--Jacket

Letters to Milena by Franz Kafka( Book )
6 editions published between 1953 and 1999 in German and English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In no other work does Franz Kafka reeal himself as in Letters to Milena, which begins as a business correspondence but soon develops into a passionate but doomed epistolary love affair. Kafka's Czech translator, Milena Jesenska was a gifted and charismatic twenty-three-year-old who was uniquely able to recognize Kafka's complex genius and his even more complex character. For the thrity-six-year-old Kafka, she was "a living fire, such as I have never seen." It was to Milena that he revealed his most intimate self and, eventually, entrusted his diaries for safekeeping. "The voice of Kafka in Letters to Milena is more personal, more pure, and more painful than in his fiction: a testimony to human existence and to our eternal wait for the impossible. A marvelous new edition of a classic text." 'Jan Kott
