by Franz Kafka
A Hunger Artist Resources
A good website with information about Kafka and his works.
Another good general website, with biography, links to reviews and criticism, lists of Kafka-related events, photos, and more.
What a cool and creative website! Web designer Alice Whittenburg and writer Greg Evans teamed up to create this interactive site that explores modern Prague in search of the real Kafka. It combines photos, text, and sound to make it feel like you really are walking the city in Kafka's footsteps.
The complete text of the story, translated by Ian Johnston, is available here.
The hunger artist's act isn't as unheard of these days as you might think. Check out this act by the magician David Blaine.
This is a joke - repeat, this is a joke. But a funny one. Check out this fake news report from The Onion.
An artistic short-film inspired by Kafka's story (and some of his other works, it seems).
A 45-minute film inspired by Kafka's "A Hunger Artist." Not a totally faithful adaptation, but interesting all the same. We're linking to part 1.
A haunting animated film about the writer. Notice how, in this first part, Kafka seems to be becoming more an more emaciated, like he's starving.
