Franz Kafka (German pronunciation: [ˈfʁants ˈkafka]; 3 July 1883 – 3 June 1924) was one of the most influential German-language novelists of the 20th century, whose works are now regarded existential classics; and among the highest achievements of world literature[citation needed]. The term "Kafkaesque" has become part of the english vernacular.

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, much of it unfinished at the time of his death, was published posthumously.[1]
