The Jewish Mystic in KafkaBook - 1987
This book focuses on Kafka's use of Jewish mysticism. It is the first major contribution to Kafka studies in this field. Jofen's findings shed new light on many of Kafka's works and illuminate some of the more obscure passages. Her original interpretations, especially of The Castle open up new avenues of research. The book depicts the world of the Hasidim as revealed in the works of Martin Buber and J.L. Peretz. The artistic drawings of Dr. Hans Guggenheim add an exciting and original dimension to the book.
