Die Noten von Kafka
This collection of Franz Kafka’s notes is thought to be the inspiration for his novella Metamorphosis. These notes capture the story of a young man in great detail, over several conversations. They include a description of the man’s earliest memories, the events that led to him transforming into a giant insect, the powers and abilities he possessed as a giant insect, a sketch of his insect form, the young man’s feelings and fears, and most importantly, conversations the young man had with a mysterious figure who offered to be his mentor. In these conversations, the mentor revealed to him the true nature of the Nightbane and how to deal with his monstrous id-self. The mentor also recounted his efforts to track down other Nightbane, teach them to deal with what they were, and educate them. These notes contain the names of several ancient and elder Nightbane, as well as what the mentor knew about the Nightbane’s origins.
Charlie further explains that he’s seen very few references to these “Nightbane” or the “Nightlands” that the book eventually briefly discusses, but he can’t quite remember where just yet. He’ll keep his eyes peeled for info.
