Trial by Franz Kafka

Book Description

The story of the mysterious indictment, trial and reckoning forced upon Kafka's Joseph K. is one of the twentieth century's master parables which has influenced almost every major writer since. By rendering the absurd and the terrifying with scrupulous factual accuracy and evenness of tone, Kafka presents the world we recognize in a gripping narrative which is also a revelation of its hidden significance.

Books By Author Franz Kafka

Metamorfosis by Franz Kafka Metamorfosis, Hardback (September 2016)

This is a short novel by Franz Kafka, first published in 1915. It is often cited as one of the seminal works of fiction of the 20th century and is widely studied in colleges and universities across the western world. The story begins with a traveling salesman, Gregor Samsa, who wakes to find himself transformed into an insect.

Hunger Artist by Franz Kafka Hunger Artist, Paperback / softback (June 2016)

"A Hunger Artist" tells the story of a performance artist whose artwork is hunger: public fasting in a cage, before gawking throngs who believe, somehow, that he is a fake. As public interest in Hunger Artists fades, the protagonist takes his talent in new and dangerous directions. A classic story by the author of "The Metamorphosis."

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » Following closely this year's new version of The Castle, here is another in a series of retranslations based on "restored texts" assembled from Kafka's original manuscripts and notes. Mitchell's translation also proposes to replace an earlier one (by Willa and Edwin Muir) said to have been unduly influenced by the efforts of Kafka's friend and literary executor Max Brod to "improve" the former's chaotic unfinished manuscripts. The Trial (1924) - whose cryptic portrayal of a bank clerk interrogated for an undisclosed offense has become perhaps the dominant image of modernist "absurdity" - holds up well in a version characterized by long, crowded paragraphs and virtually incantatory accusatory repetitions that confer equal emphasis on the novel's despairing comedy and aura of unspecific menace. Admirers of Kafka's fiction will not want to miss it. (Kirkus Reviews)
