BROD, MAX
MAX BROD An autograph letter, in German, signed, Tel-Aviv, March 29, 1944, on Habimah Circle stationery, by the Czech-born, German-language novelist, playwright and essayist who is best known as a good friend of Franz Kafka and against Kafka's wishes edited and published the writer's major works. This letter is to a Mr. Rabbinowitz with a blunt assessment of a proposed project, "I have to be frank and tell you that the two scenes 'The White Tavern' appear to me quite unusable. In the first there is no trace of plot. In the second, the Polish milieu is treated too broadly---and again, there is no action---Unfortunately, I see no chance of a performance in this case." 1 page, 4to. [ref:7012]

Right afterward I'm turning my attention to lectures…and will soon send you news…" 1 page, 8vo. Brod, an active Zionist, went to Palestine in 1939, fleeing the Nazi invasion of Czechoslovakia.
