It is surely not indiﬀerent to this dynamic that the ﬁgure itself (a struggle) suggests both punishment and deﬁance, and I will return to this important question below. This conﬂict, with its “eternal ups and downs,” will put into play in Kafka’s work a powerful motif of elevation and descent, in close proximity with a guilt that has to do directly with “forces within” as they demand to be bodied forth, liberated (freigemacht) and externalized. As here, the imperative to write for Kafka will long be understood in terms of being bound (to a stake, by a millstone), and of ﬁnding release.
In what does this passage consist? A brief sketch of its trajectory will allow us to see more clearly how Kafka negotiates the conditions that tightly structure the very cohesive set of judgment narratives, these “successful” narratives that threaten to trap, and to kill, even as they vibrate with an unknown freedom. As a shift of emphasis from the visual to the vocal, this movement might also be described, in parallel and summary fashion, as a shift from “theory” to thought, a displacement from the “contemplation” (Betrachtung) with which Kafka began toward an unaccountable dimension of the voice on which his ﬁnal story (“Joseﬁne the Singer”) ruminates.
Whose dangers, however, will require the discipline we have seen emerging as indispensible to these eﬀorts. Discipline is one answer to this question as to “how” to bring out such a sharp-edged “world,” and in this strangely physical process writing itself is staged as a kind of bodily performance—one which, not surprisingly, gives rise to narratives organized around the mise-en-scène of a speaking body placed in danger as such. A little over a year later, Kafka speciﬁes the nature of this troubling world in the head, and of the drive associated with it, when he speaks of his “fate as a writer” in terms of externalizing an inner life that is like a dream, in a diary entry from around the time when he began work on The Trial (August 6, 1914); not incidentally, he describes it as a process that requires all of his exclusive care and attention: What will be my fate as a writer is very simple.
