Franz Kafka

Writer (July 03, 1883 - June 03, 1924)
Nationality: Czechoslovak
Known for portraying the anxiety and absurdity of modern life, Franz Kafka's writing is fraught with alienated characters in unfamiliar worlds. His surname even became an adjective used to describe anything of senseless complexity.

An escaped slave himself, Douglass became one of the most eloquent voices for Abolitionism in the United States.
