'Since the' Michael Kohlhaas', no German novella has been written that apparently suppresses any inner sympathy with such conscious force, and which is so perfused by its author. The story is simply that in the penal colony a rebellious soldier is strapped to a crazy machine and there he is tortured. There his punishment, the thesis: 'Honor your superiors', is written on his bare body. Needles do that. ' (Kurt Tucholsky) 'The immense world that I have in my head. But how to free me and free them without tearing. And tear a thousand times rather than hold it back in me or bury it. That's what I'm here for, that's very clear to me. ' (Franz Kafka: Diaries, June 21, 1913)
