De un vacío aparente. Una lectura de Das Schloß de F. Kafka

Guillermo Moreno Tirado


This paper aims to read Das Schloß by F. Kafka from a

phenomenological-hermeneutic investigation project (in the eminent

Heideggerian sense), from where to identify the “poetical mark” of the

novel. Assuming this methodological perspective, it will attempt to

interpret the “poetical mark” of the novel in order to mark it as the guide

which leads our whole interpretation of the text, in which the distance

and differences between K. (and us, as interpreters) and the villagers will

be described. Finally, we will confront with R. Calasso’s description of the

castle as a place of concretion of power according to our interpretation of

the scheinbare Leere (apparent emptiness) from the novel’s beginning and

K.’s “title” of Landvermessen (surveyor).
