[From Foreword] FOREWORD AMONG THE WORKS by young Israeli writers with which I am familiar, Fortunes of a Fool is the only one markedly influenced by the art of Franz Kafka. Certainly this is a beneficial influence, as Megged has fully maintained his own originality and independence. Megged tells the story of a lonely outsider, which is really the story of the human conscience. The events take place in a society which has lost its sane criterion. Like Kafka's heroes, Megged's fool has lost his spiritual links with his environment; his life is also a cry of protest against a society which is losing its faith. True, Kafka is more restrained than the figure whom Megged presents as his "weak hero" in the centre of his work. Whether through a passive hero or an active one, both authors voice an equally strong protest. Fortunes of a Fool is an important and serious attempt in the young literature of Israel to come to grips with universal problems. The background, like the heroes, is unmistakably Israeli, and is presented with the satiric bite so characteristic of Megged's other works. But the problems discussed by the book are common to all mankind. Through this book sounds, in a minor key, the triumph of man's humanity conquering the "iron heart" which the atomic age wants to impose on us all. Seller Inventory # 20171018001
