Last year when John Duffy, a Canadian political strategist and writer, died at the age of 58, I noticed an outpouring of genuine love, and sadness, on Twitter, along with frequent references to his book Fights of our Lives. It was called one the best ever written on Canadian politics. So I picked up a copy. It's filled with dozens of old photographs, and images of period posters, and flyers, buttons, correspondence, and other fascinating bits and pieces of ephemera and memorabilia: the 'confetti of history' as Walter Benjamin liked to put it, plus it features these great 'diagrams' of game plans, 'playbooks,' that John came up with to explain the strategies and tactics used in what he considered to be the five most consequential elections in Canadian history. It was visually captivating, and a fun informative read, so I decided to feature it on The Biblio File Book Club. But who to engage with?   Several people suggested Justin Trudeau's close friend and advisor, Gerry Butts. After a bit of toing and froing, and my prematurely and, as it turns out, quite erroneously, dismissing him as a typical political bounder, it all came together. Gerry agreed to play ball. We met in person several days ago at the Chateau Laurier hotel in Ottawa.    Gerry is currently Vice Chairman of The Eurasia Group, a risk management firm with offices around the world. We talk here about John Duffy's optimism, about whether or not elections matter; about cynicism, championship debating, Canada's business elite, the PBO's report on income inequality, the urban-rural divide, 1300 Dollarama stores, lifting children out of poverty, the King-Bing Affair, SNC Lavalin, the Manitoba School crisis, Wilfrid Laurier and Justin Trudeau's 'Sunny Ways,' kicking the can down the road; Lament for a Nation, and Mel Hurtig. There's a James Joyce quote. Gerry tells a joke about Franz Kafka on the way out the door, and I recommend that he reads Nora Krug's illustrated edition of On Tyranny.    Plus another thing: we're both convinced that John Duffy's Fights of our Lives (egregiously it's both out of print and published by an American multi-national) should be made into a TV Series as soon as possible.

Hartmut Merkt † war Mathematiker, Schriftsteller und Literaturhistoriker, Lyriker, Dramatiker und lyrischer Prosaist. “Schon früh beschäftigte sich Hartmut Merkt intensiv mit der Lyrik Georg Trakls und Paul Celans sowie mit Franz Kafka. Hartmut Merkt entdeckte die Lyrik als die ihm geeignetste literarische Ausdrucksform und begann mit ihr zu experimentieren. Er gab die Zeitschrift „Bisbala“ heraus und gründete die Gruppe Literateam. Merkt entwickelte den für ihn typischen Stil einer „gestörten Naturlyrik“; allerdings setzte er sich auch in kritischen politischen Gedichten und magisch-politischen Erzählungen mit dem Zeitgeschehen auseinander. Die Beziehungen zu aktuellen politischen oder sozialen Themen finden sich bis heute in seinen Werken. Seine Literatur stellt eine Symbiose aus Magie und Realismus seiner Lyrik und Prosa dar und weist ihn auch dem sogenannten magischen Realismus zu. Er verfasste experimentelle Hörspiele und schrieb zusammen mit dem Dichter und Komponisten Alexander Bertsch Anfang der 80er Jahre das Theaterstück „Philemon und Baukis 81“ und später weitere Theaterstücke. Hartmut Merkt beherrscht Altgriechisch Althochdeutsch, Deutsch, Englisch, Finnisch, Französisch, Italienisch, Jiddisch, Latein und Mittelhochdeutsch.

En este corto resumen explicamos cómo el sistema social no siempre es cálido y nuestro trabajo no siempre es valorado.

Und was zeichnet Kunst aus? Fertigkeit, Intuition und Inszenierung sind dabei Begriffe, über die die beiden diskutieren. Und sie kommen zu dem Schluss: Kunst ist lebensnotwendig, eine emotionale Sache, aber auch ein Handwerk. Genau wie Sex.

The Bible is the most important and influential work ever. And nothing has been more influential on the development of the English language over the last 500 years than the translation of the Bible into English. And whether from literary, political-institutional, cultural or religious perspectives, the Bible has been deeply formative in shaping the West as we know it. So how should we engage with this text? Some say we should heed its commands; others that we should try to understand it in the context of ancient history; still others say we should examine how it has influenced the world we live in. But probably the most underrated way to engage the Bible is just…to read it. So what would it look like to attune our ears to the Bible's literary character? To unpack this Ari spoke with the most influential living Biblical scholar, and author of a magisterial translation of the entire Hebrew Bible, Robert Alter. In this epic conversation they spoke about what makes translation different than other types of interpretation; Biblical terms for physical relations; the King James Version of 1611; various “untranslatable” phenomena; the Biblical concept of “soul”; Samuel and Saul; whether the Bible thinks political order is possible; reader questions (!); Rashi; rabbinic midrash; Franz Kafka and Jewish mysticism; Moby Dick; and much more!

Two Difficult Life LessonsHow the WISE Uncover WISDOM - Matthew KellyGet Matthew's 60 Second Wisdom delivered to your inbox: https://www.matthewkelly.com/subscribeVideo Transcript:“Two of life's most difficult lessons are learning to be still and quiet. How good are you at these?For centuries and millennia, the wise people of every culture under the sun have sought the counsel of silence. Pythagoras, the Greek philosopher and mathematician, wrote: “Learn to be silent. Let your quiet mind listen and absorb.” Writing about the importance of silence and solitude, Blaise Pascal, the seventeenth-century French philosopher, scientist, mathematician, and writer, wrote: “All of man's miseries derive from not being able to sit quietly in a room alone.” Franz Kafka, the Czech-Jewish novelist, philosopher, and poet, wrote: “You need not leave your room.

Meet Jacek Debowski, an independent video game developer based in Warsaw, Poland. Ovid Works was founded in 2015 as a side project motivated by the team's love of games and literature. Through Metamorphosis, a game that was influenced by the writings of Franz Kafka, the development team aimed to enhance the relationship between interactive gameplay and traditional storytelling. The first game was the whimsical 2017 VR adventure Interkosmos, which put players in the cockpit of a Soviet space capsule plummeting toward earth. Our next game Metamorphosis was a first-person puzzle-platformer set in surrealist landscapes, where you'll play as a tiny bug. I'm glad Jacek Debowski, agreed to take some time out of their schedule to talk and share his experience on the XR Magazine show!

Welcome to BookShook! This episode is all about the second half of October's book, Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys published in 1966 (from page 77 if you're reading alongside). The idea of the episode is that I take a book I've never read, split it in two and discuss each half on the second and last Fridays of the month. I'll do a first impressions summary alongside my thoughts and reactions and then raise any interesting ideas so far in the novel (be aware - there may be spoilers.) And then on the last Friday of the month, I'll discuss the second half of the book. We'll see together how the novel concludes and decide whether it's a book we'd recommend to a friend - or not. Of course, you don't have to read the book, you can listen to it, or just follow along without doing either since I'll be summarising what happens (but be aware! - there will be spoilers). You can leave a comment or start a conversation at the BookShook YouTube channel (link below) or send an email to bookshook@yahoo.com. The book we'll be reading for November is The Castle by Franz Kafka (280 pages) — we'll be reading up to Chapter 14 'Frieda's Reproach' (so get that ready if you're going to read alongside me). The first episode will be on 11th November. Thanks for listening to BookShook! RogerContent Warning: It is assumed that you have read the first half of the novel so their may be spoilers up to 50%. I also read Jane Eyre in preparation for this podcast, and although I've tried to alert to any possible spoilers where possible, if you hate spoilers, my advice would be to read that book before listening. There are references to the following topics in the book: arson, mental illness, racism. I don't use any swear words in this podcast. The n-word is used widely throughout the novel and any quotations from the novel that contain this word have been replaced with the phrase “n-word”. Also, apologies for not pronouncing Jean correctly. If there is anything I have missed, do let me know. This podcast as always, is a learning process for me.

Days Left On Earth: 17510 Franz Kafka was one of the 20th century's great novelists. His short story ‘Before the law' gave me so much courage that I wanted to share it with you.For this episode, I will read this short story and then look at the reflection I wrote in my journal.What does Kafka's parable mean to me?The man wants to be handed the law on a plate. He is posturing to be let in but, deep down, does not have the spirit to make a move. To risk failure and open himself to bigger, meaner gatekeepers.  So he sits and waits - hoping for someone or something to gift him entry. All his attention is focused on the first challenge, and he can longer see the wood for the trees. He waits.When in truth - these obstacles in life are meant just for us. No one else. No one invites us in. There is never a perfect moment,They are our gatekeepers. And we must take action even when it scares us, or we will never know what's on the other side.My big gatekeeper was alcohol.For years I waited outside waiting to be welcomed in. I even wished a soft-rock bottom that did not hurt too much would force me past the gatekeeper.Back then, I did not have the courage to take action.Then after years of waiting, unlike the man, I forced my way past the gatekeeper and found my courage on the other side.Once inside, I found another bigger, scarier gatekeeper.I wanted to leave the broking world, but everyone thought it impossible. No one gets past the gatekeeper with the golden handcuffs.Until I did.The great insight is that your challenges are unique to you, but in taking action in the face of fear, you grow stronger and more resilient. Which builds the momentum to get past the next gatekeeper.One last thing.The gatekeepers are never-ending.Or, as Ryan Holiday says, “behind the mountains are more mountains.'Happiness is found trying to climb them.

After a very brief biography of Kafka, the boys review the characters, the basic plot, and the structure of the book, then delve into its possible meanings. Gregor, the main character, wakes up one morning as a bug, with predictable but rather amusing consequences for his job and his family. In some ways, the story sounds like something a 5th grader would dream up. But there are interesting layers of meaning in the text, and plenty to think about. Pigweed, Crowhill, and Longinus discuss a few possible interpretations of the story.

El escritor rumano Mircea Cărtărescu (Bucarest, 1956) es cofrade del mismo culto pagano que Franz Kafka, quien en sus diarios sentenció: “No soy otra cosa que literatura, y no puedo ni quiero ser otra cosa”. Cărtărescu habita laberintos de palabras, respira metáforas librescas y horada túneles entre hojas amarillentas. De esas atmósferas se nutre la nostalgia y el impulso erótico del penúltimo habitante de Bucarest, cuya pluma inventa utopías y engendra ruinas por igual. Cuento, novela, ensayo o poesía; Borges, Proust, Bach u Odiseo, todo se entrelaza y se desvanece en la cabeza del hermano que murió en la infancia, en las frenéticas alucinaciones de niños corriendo con máscaras por calles desoladas de algún paraje poscomunista, en los frescos de iglesias ortodoxas derruidas o en los resplandores del ocaso entre las patas de un grillo topo. Para Cărtărescu todo es posibilidad, porque todo está por escribirse… “… Como si los puentes se derribaran a mi paso. … Como si las estrellas explotaran después de caer dormido. … Como si nuestra memoria fuera un osario. … Como si nuestra mente fuera una campana resquebrajada”.

Questions For When You Are Gone with Rabbi Steve Leder     “If you are afraid of dying it's not your day. Anxiety is for the living. So if you are worried and anxious about dying, you're not dying, which means you have time to let death teach you about living and loving your life.” – Rabbi Steve Leder   “Most people die exactly the way they live.” – Rabbi Steve Leder   “The meaning of life is that it stops.” German author Franz Kafka (1883-1924)       Episode Summary:   What can death teach you about how to live your life?   Today we talk with Rabbi Steve Leder, currently serving as the Senior Rabbi of Wilshire Boulevard Temple, a prestigious synagogue in Los Angeles with three campuses and 2,700 families.     He has been a regular contributor and guest on the Today Show, writes regularly for TIME, Foxnews.com, Maria Shriver's Sunday Paper, contributed a chapter to “Charles Barkley's book Who's Afraid of a Large Black Man?', and has published essays in Town and Country, the Los Angeles Times, and USA Today.  Newsweek Magazine twice named him one of the ten most influential rabbis in America.   Most important to Steve is being Betsy's husband and Aaron and Hannah's dad.  He is also a Jew who likes to fish.  Go figure.   After undergraduate study at Northwestern University and Trinity College, Oxford University, Rabbi Leder received a Master's Degree in Hebrew Letters in 1986 and Rabbinical Ordination in 1987 from Hebrew Union College.    His book “More Beautiful Than Before; How Suffering Transforms Us”, published in 2017, reached #4 on Amazon's overall best sellers list in its first week.  It remains a best seller in several categories and has been translated into Korean and Chinese.    His book “The Beauty of What Remains; How Our Greatest Fear Becomes Our Greatest Gift” was published by Penguin Random House in January, 2021.  Publisher's weekly called it “…elegant and compassionate” and it quickly became a national best seller.    Rabbi Leder's newest book “For You When I Am Gone; Twelve Essential Questions to Tell a Life Story”, also published by Penguin Random House, launches on June 7, 2022       Rabbi Leder has served literally thousands of people and their families around their deaths.

Here is a story for those times when you only have a few minutes for a story. While not long itself, this incredibly Kafkaesque parable may leave you pondering its meaning long after you have listened to "Before the Law." Bohemian author Franz Kafka is considered one of the greats. Few storytellers have had their names turned into adjectives. Orwellian, maybe Hitchcockian come to mind. But the best known of these is Kafkaesque, whose meaning is elusive, like that of many Kafka stories. I have my own somewhat religious interpretation of “Before the Law.” I will leave it to you to ponder your own.
