Welcome to Lit Gifs! It started with a small assignment for graduate school: translate Franz Kafka’s “A Hunger Artist” for a “new media” audience. Use any platform you want. Some of my classmates chose Twitter, some chose Tumblr, there was even a short film. I chose gifs.
It was just going to be that one assignment, but the literature nerd in me had so much fun that I decided to continue the project, with other stories.
Format: about 20 gifs per story, which means I can only focus on major plot points. I assume you have either a. read the work (preferably) or b. have some knowledge of the work itself. This is by no means an exhaustive summary and, like Sparknotes, is not a substitute for the work itself.
A note on the gifs: many of the gifs I use I have found through online gif databases. I try to credit as much as possible, but if you see a gif you have created that you do not want me to use, please contact me and I will remove it.
