The Judgment (Das Urteil) is a short story by Franz Kafka which depicts the conversation between a man and his father, where many conflicts arise. The story has been analyzed under the scope of psychoanalysis. Kafka wrote the story on the night of September 22-23, 1912. This coincides with the eve of the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), also known as Yom ha-Din, the Day of Judgment. The story was written at a time when Kafka wrote some of his best-known works (such as The Metamorphosis).
