    In der Strafkolonie In the Penal Settlement In the Penal Colony, Franz KafkaIn the Penal Colony is a short story by Franz Kafka written in German in October 1914, revised in November 1918, and first published in October 1919 The story is set in an unnamed penal colony Internal clues and the setting on an island suggest Octave Mirbeau s The Torture Garden as an influence As in some of Kafka s other writings, the narrator in this story seems detached from, or perhaps numbed by, events that one would normally expect to be registered with horror In the Penal Colony describes the last use of an elaborate torture and execution device that carves the sentence of the condemned prisoner on his skin before letting him die, all in the course of twelve hours As the plot unfolds, the reader learns and about the machine, including its origin and original justification 1976 1977 1342 150 1384 20 1383 1327

    There is often menace and even horror in Kafka s works, but not usually blood and gore, as this has Nevertheless, in many ways, it is quintessential Kafka, featuring abuse of the law, the mental horror of a helpless and uniformed protagonist, an outsider, a degree of surrealism, and some dry asides The Harrowing HarrowThe plot is grim but simple A traveller to a tropical penal colony is invited to watch their unique method of execution a complex machine the Harrow engraves the words of the offence in an illegible script The condemned man usually dies about 12 hours later, but as the words are drilled into him, he is supposed to experience a moment of revelation and regret.The machine is explained in graphic detail by the officer who has devoted years to its upkeep and worships it almost as much as he worships the previous commander who invented it The officer is despairing that the new commander is not enlightened enough to give full support to the method and fears the commander wants to abolish it.I expect Orwell had this in mind in 1984 In the old days the heretic walked to the stake still a heretic But we make the brain perfect before we blow it out Although proud of the moment of enlightenment bestowed just before death, the officer s concern is mechanics, not morality Was it madness that made him so obsessed, or his obsession that drove him to madness Does Inaction Make one Morally Culpable for Events The traveller is horrified, but is unsure whether or how he should intervene He is an honoured guest, and from a country that is not the colonial power In this short story, there are three times when he considers acting But he does not He knew what was going to happen but he had no right to hinder because the officer was acting logically according to his own principles.He does not even say farewell to the commandant He just sails away I m reminded of Le Guin s chilling short story, The Ones Who Walked Away from Omelas, which I reviewed HERE.SacrificeIn a twist, the one who is sacrificed to the machine is the one who worships it But even that is futile the face of the dead officer showed no sign of the promised deliverance What all the others had found in the machine, the officer had not found Another outsider viewing a strange tradition is the narrator of Shirley Jackson s equally disturbing short story, The Lottery, which I reviewed HERE.QuintessentiallityThe particularly Kafkaesque elements are that the condemned man never knows his crime It is a trumped up charge of insubordination and insulting a senior officer , which arises from a pointless job at which success is almost impossible he fell asleep, so failed to salute the sleeping captain s door on the hour, every hour, through the night Further, the accused has had no opportunity to defend himself, does not initially know he is due to be executed, or how, and does not speak the language of the officer, traveller or guard The officer is judge, jury and executioner, something he is proud of after all, guilt is always beyond question.ResurgamThe surprising and sinister aspect is the fact that the few remaining followers of the previous commander believe that one day he will rise again from his graveSee my Kafka related bookshelf for other works by and about Kafka.See Bruce s excellent review for an interesting angle, seeing this as a metaphor for language and communication can read the full text here 23 pages is was an operatic adaptation, which is worth seeing if you have the chance.

    Como explicaci n para esta narraci n, s lo quiero agregar que no solamente ella me resulta desagradable, sino que m s precisamente nuestra poca en general, y especialmente la m a, fue y sigue siendo desagradable, e incluso que la m a ha sido y es desagradable por un tiempo m s prolongado que lo corriente Esto es lo que afirmaba Franz Kafka en 1914, cuando escribi En la colonia penitenciaria , su relato m s violento, cruel y despiadado que trasciende lo psicol gico a partir del tormento f sico utilizando una m quina para torturar a un condenado, que el oficial a cargo le explica a un explorador enviado a tal fin.Kafka, con este relato anticipaba, entre otras cosas, lo que le suceder a a su propio pueblo, el jud o, a manos de las atrocidades que los nazis ejercieron sobre ellos en los campos de concentraci n, y tambi n es una cr tica al sistema carcelario por la brutalidad que muchos pa ses han empleado y algunos siguen haciendo , violando toda norma de derechos humanos.La justificaci n del sistema por parte del oficial a cargo es aberrante Mi principio fundamental es este la culpa es siempre indudable y con esa premisa da rienda suelta para ejecutar sin condenar, que es lo que reclama el explorador.Esta cuesti n es el punto crucial de discusi n en la novela El peregrino de las estrellas , de Jack London, cuyo personaje principal sufre el aberrante m todo de tortura denominado jacket y ante lo cual se plantea la innecesaria crueldad del sistema carcelario.En lo referente a este relato de Kafka, considero que es uno de los m s at picos de toda su obra y sale totalmente de la orientaci n que siempre le dio a sus escritos, pero no por ellos es menos kafkiano, ya que en cierto modo funciona como una gran teor a del absurdo que esta simbolizado en esa m quina de tortura infernal.

    I thought I was reading Edgar Allan Poe there for a moment The torture execution machine in this short story was worthy of Poe s imagination What was it s purpose To torture or to execute Either one would be most cruel in it s application But in this case it serves the dual purpose It also had an Orwellian feel to it Of course Kafka was sandwiched between these two writers so it s hard to say any influence existed.
