Kafka was obviously in? uenced in his thinking and works by Dostoevsky.He claimed to have some blood relationship with Dostoevsky.His works teem with an air of the "underground" or "death room" typical of Dostoevsky.The weak characters in Kafka's works are similar to Dostoevsky's "small potatoes".Kafka's doubts,perplexity,misgivings and exploration all had their origins in Dostoevsky.Dostoevsky was a forerunner before Kafka,who,however,took a road that only belonged to himself.
