The Castle is Not OK with K.

Novelist and short story writer Franz Kafka never completed his novel The Castle. He died first.

The Castle is based on a character simply named K. and focuses on his attempt to gain access into a mysterious castle that governs a small village by its inhabitants. The novel incorporates themes of alienation and bureaucracy.

Although Kafka never formally finished writing The Castle, the story implies that K. dies in his attempt to uncover the truth. Kafka, himself, died of tuberculosis on June 3, 1924. He was an Austrian-Hungarian Jew born in Prague, which is now the Czech Republic.
