"What makes something 'Kafkaesque?'... It's not the absurdity of bureaucracy alone." This TED-Ed animated short film, created by educator Noah Tavlin and narrated by Addison Anderson, explains the combination of external circumstances and human tendencies that characterize a situation as truly "Kafkaesque."

Robot (Kafka) Love

Caption: 

In this clip by Seth Weiner, a robot re-enacts the typing of a love letter from Franz Kafka to Felize Bauer, who Kafka met on August 13, 1912. In the letter, which can be found in Letters to Felice (Schocken, 1987), Kafka "makes reference to typing the letter on a typewriter and expresses the impact the new writing device has on his train of thought."
