In Kafka, Deleuze and Guattari free their subject from his (mis)intrepreters. In contrast to traditional readings that see in Kafka’s work a case of Oedipalized neurosis or a flight into transcendence, guilt, and subjectivity, Deleuze and Guattari make a case for Kafka as a man of joy, a promoter of radical politics who resisted at every turn submission to frozen hierarchies.
—Translated by Dana Polan with a foreword by Reda Bensmaia
