Franz Kafka was an influential German-language novelist whom critics considered as one of the best writers of the 20th century. His writings were believed to be associated with modernism or magic realism. Some even relate the hopelessness and absurdity of his works to be in sync with existentialism. Most of his unfinished and unpublished books were published posthumously by his close friend, Max Brod. These famous novels include “The Trial”, “The Castle”, and “Amerika”. He mostly wrote in German and is known for his excessively long sentences. Another unique feature of his writings was his intentional use of ambiguous terms and words that have several meanings. Such was his popularity that Kafka even had a museum dedicated to his work in Prague, Czech Republic. His native house on the Old Town Square next to Prague's Church of St Nicholas where he was born now contains a permanent exhibition dedicated to him.
