The Call of the Daimon: Love and Truth in the Writings of Franz Kafka moves easily between Kafka's life, characters and events in the novels, contemporary poetry, and Aldo Carotenuto's interpretations of critical Jungian perspectives. The primary human event that interests Carotenuto is the call of the daimon: the desire for truth and love that destroys all misconceptions and self-delusions, that demands a constant creative response to life's difficulties, and that ultimately allows the seeker no rest. This is Carotenuto's vision of the driven Kafka, and he follows this theme as it moves from Kafka's life into the created lives of his characters. Carotenuto analyzes the characters as aspects of Kafka and the novels as Kafka's attempt to be true to the call, which is the essence of true art, and ultimately of true healing. -- Midwest Book Review
