Hmm …

 A Time Of Sonorous Prose - The American Conservative. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

The author apparently doesn’t  know that when Kafka read his stories to his friends, they found them hilarious. At the end of The Myth of Sisyphus, Camus notes that Kafka was not really an Absurdist because he always offers a glimpse of hope. Camus himself came to dislike being considered an Absurdist.

It is is true, though, that these times tend to be prosaic in the worst sense.
