Speech on receiving an honorary doctorate from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem

„My somewhat desultory attitude about studying Kafka’s works comes from my vague feeling that I don't need to read and re-read everything Kafka has written because I know what I’ll find there anyway. I'm even secretly persuaded that if Kafka did not exist, and if I were a better writer than I am, I would have written all his works myself.“
