Analysis of Franz Kafka’s short story: “Before the law”

The man was given a challenge to try and get past the gatekeeper in order to get to the law. Imagine being in a courtroom fighting for what is right. The gatekeeper can be seen as a professional, such as a mediator. If you are not able to demonstrate to the mediator why you should win the case, you will not have the verdict entered in your favor. As such, if the man was not able to get past the gatekeeper he would never gain access to the law. The same can be seen for those fighting to change how laws are in society. People can try several times to make changes; however, many are not able to get the changes they seek.

However, to their credit, it is not because they have not read closely enough into detail, but because Franz Kafka crafted his parable in such a way that a definite meaning cannot be derived from it. He does this in order to draw us into the position of the man in the parable so that we can better experience the futility in our persistent human nature of trying to find meaning in parables and examine our way of thinking and approaching parables through making connections between the vehicle and the tenor. Both of these interpretations can account for many of the metaphors in the parable, but never the entire metaphorical system. There always seems to parts that just do not quite fit no matter how plausible the interpretation appears to be. If the doorkeeper is the vehicle, what is the tenor? What would have happened if the man had gone through the gate?

Franz Kafka, the author of this parable, even though descending from a Jewish family had not seemed to create a connection with religion until he was twenty eight. From that point on he seemed in a perpetual pursuit of the concept of Judaism, and that did leave influential carvings even on his literature that he produced after that Walter pg. A crucial piece that needs to be introduced in this paper is the year of publication of this allegory — which is in I think that when Kafka re-opened per se a new chapter in his life which involved religion, it influenced his writing and specifically in this story he tried to portray the law as being God, and the countryman as everyone who is in pursuit of it, and conclusively spicing it up with a critique on the institutionalization of religion. Firstly, we will portray general conceptions of the law and try to make a comparison to the attributes of God. Furthermore, what is quite crucial is also the concept of the law being an invisible hand for which we can clearly see the mere comparison as in the concept of divine interventions, them being attributed to a deity having effect on something in reality, while the action itself cannot be seen.

  1. What an intriguing allegory! A man from the country comes to find the law. He is stopped by a doorkeeper. The man wants to know if he will be allowed in later;.
