I DIED BY THAT TREE
‘I and the burrow belong so indissolubly together that in spite of all my fears I could make myself quite comfortable out here’
‘And with its silence and emptiness the burrow answers me, confirming my words.’
Franz Kafka, “The Burrow,” Complete Stories, trans. Willa and Edwin Muir (Schocken, 1971), 340, 342.
