Auf der Galerie
In der ErzÃ¤hlung "Auf der Galerie" beschreibt Franz Kafka in zwei komplett gegensÃ¤tzlichen Perspektiven die Darbietung einer KÃ¼nstlerin in der Manege eines Zirkus und das Leiden des Galeriebesuchers durch diesen beiden Darbietungen.
"Up in the Gallery" ("Auf der Galerie") is a short piece of fiction written by Franz Kafka. It was created between November 1916 and February 1917 and published in the collection Ein Landarzt (A Country Doctor) in 1919. The story offers two versions of a scene in which a young man watches a circus ringmaster and a woman on horseback.
Franz Kafka (3 July 1883 - 3 June 1924) was a culturally influential German-language author of short stories and novels. Contemporary critics and academics, including Vladimir Nabokov, regard Kafka as one of the best writers of the 20th century. The term "Kafkaesque" has become part of the English language.
Kafka was born to middle class German-speaking Jewish parents in Prague, Bohemia, then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The house in which he was born, on the Old Town Square next to Prague's Church of St Nicholas, now contains a permanent exhibition devoted to the author.
Most of Kafka's writing, including the large body of his unfinished work, was published posthumously.
