Publish Date: 2008-02-26
Author: Franz Kafka
A brilliant new translation of Kafkas best-known work, published for the 125th anniversary of his birth
This collection of new translations brings together the small proportion of Kafkas works that he thought worthy of publication. It includes Metamorphosis, his most famous work, an exploration of horrific transformation and alienation; Meditation, a collection of his earlier studies; The Judgement, written in a single night of frenzied creativity; The Stoker, the first chapter of a novel set in America and a fascinating occasional piece, The Aeroplanes at Brescia, Kafkas eyewitness account of an air display in 1909. Together, these stories reveal the breadth of Kafkas literary vision and the extraordinary imaginative depth of his thought.
