Triphiodorus, 'The Sack of Troy': A General Study and a Commentary

The final complete statement at the Sack of Troy was once released through Wernicke in 1819 or even the newest analyses of the poem are likely to see it as a brief halt within the evolution of epic poetry on its manner in the direction of Nonnus of Panopolis.

The remainderless absorption into literature would thus throw off the outer shell of a false self, but insofar as literature remains in the realm of the visible, of mere appearance and image, it will continually cast up its stripped away leavings as essential to the movement of its own construction: in writing, the outward image is of the essence, or in other terms, the outward visible shell is the kernel of the literary thing.

This “being-a-writer” or “writer-being” (Schriftstellersein), of which so much has been made, serves here as the cipher for Kafka’s self-conscious striving for a certain literary transcendence—but it will also be a signpost on the way to the failure of these strivings, about which Kafka had a perfectly sober awareness, expressed very clearly in later writings. indb 18 12/12/13 10:11:02 AM kafka’s teeth: the literary gewissensbiss 19 that quickly followed, and then, further and “downward,” into a mode of writing at pains to burrow into its own earthbound conditions, closely tied to the conditions of a speaking voice.

And they certainly are compelling. At the very least they convey the fact that, to put it very simply, something tremendous is at stake in the writer’s vocation—indeed, nothing less than everything. Such is the tenor and scale of their hyperbolic rhetoric, here as elsewhere. But I am not sure that these dramatic proclamations are the most fruitful place to look for a substantive rendering of the imperative to write driving and structuring Kafka’s work. More relevant to my purposes is a much broader structural-figural accretion that is to be read in the relationship between such proclamations and their larger context, both in the texts where they appear, and in Kafka’s project as a whole: a project that involves an explicit effort at self-fashioning and transformation into a writer, a strange being that maintains a vexed and impossible relationship with the empirical existence of the author.
