Ordinary readers describe the experience of reading Kafka as full of contradictory dualities and define the term "Kafkaesque" in terms of paradox (Troscianko, Kafka's Cognitive Realism 33-36), and in the critical literature Heinz Politzer's Parable and Paradox, for instance, suggests that Kafka's writing is defined by the interaction between these two elements, the "paradox" of human existence being the "message" of his "parables," while Gerhard Neumann describes Kafka's works in terms of "gleitendes Paradox" (sliding paradox) and Jurgen Kobs characterizes their structure as a "paradoxer Zirkel" (paradoxical circle, 14).
