Walter Benjamin: lo natural y lo sobrenatural vs el enigma y el sometimiento al misterio. Una lectura de “El Proceso”
Maya Franco, Claudia María
Parting from the essays that Walter Benjamin dedicated to Franz Kafka, this article proposes a reflection on this sentence: “There are two ways to radically misinterpret Kafkaesque texts. One is the natural explanation and the other the supernatural one. Basically, both, both psychoanalytic and theological, go wrong in the same way" (Benjamin, 2018: 172). Taking as a reference the novel The Process, the aim is to investigate these two ways, advancing, as far as possible, towards an interpretation that is more akin to the warnings and the decipherment keys that we can read in Benjamin's essays, as well as to the category of minor Literature, with which Franz Kafka defines his literary activities in his diaries.
