Did he believe all of that stuff about making the leap of faith, about subjectivity and truth, the absurd, and so forth? Or did he intend to parody these notions? Or what?
I've only read a little of K, but here goes..
Was K the intersection of the sacred and the ironic? To describe what he described seems to require the distancing achieved though negation. Harold Bloom compared K to Hamlet. Both turned their backs on women, plumbed the depths of their subjectivities, and liked to enfold
drama. "The play's the thing." To use a pseudonym means
something, I think, in this case. He wouldn't commit to his lady, this K, and he wouldn't commit to God, or did he? Both men seemed tempted by radical freedom. Yet Hamlet becomes a sort of fatalist in Act V. Does God play this role for K?
If I'm way off, forgive me. Not much sleep of late.
