Abstract: The Castle is one of the important novels of Franz Kafka, a radical, revolutionary German novelist. The picture of man that Kafka presents or portrays in his novels like ‘The Castle’, ‘The Trial’ and ‘America’ is not the picture of the spiritual or the ideal man but of the real one who lives in the midst of his ‘situations’ – mostly painful, perilous situations.
