Vlašić-Anić A. Actualisation of the Aleksandria with Kafka’s Strategy of Paradox “Absences”
The article shows the inexhaustible artistic potential of “The Story of Alexander the Great”, a Greek novel written by Pseudo-Callisthenes, F. Kafka used in his prose miniature “Der neue Advokat” (1917). In the course of the comparative analysis, basing on the Kafka᾽s strategy – the paradox of the “absence”, the author examines the interactive levels of the Kafka᾽s text and comes to the conclusion that this work is “inlaided” with the elements of Alexandria. The analysis is based on: 1. (West) Cyrillic Roudnice Handwriting of the first half of the 16th century; 2. the manuscript of Macedonian Alexandria, published in Ohrid in 2001 under the editorship of D. Pandev. During the preparation this publication, the handwritten version of the story of Alexander the Greate of the 16th century edition in the Church Slavonic language (in serbian variant) was used.
