From Longman Dictionary of Contemporary EnglishKafka, FranzFranz KafkaKaf‧ka, Franz /ˈkæfkə $ ˈkɑːf-, frænts $ frɑːnts/  (1883–1924) a Czech writer who wrote in German, known for his novels such as The Trial and The Castle, and his short stories such as Metamorphosis, in which a man turns into a large and ugly insect. His stories deal with the struggle of ordinary people on their own against the state or large organizations. The word Kafkaesque is used to describe this type of experience, in which you feel that no one understands you and there is no way of escaping from an unpleasant situation.
