Metamorphosis & Other Stories

£8.99

Only one character appears in Kafka’s work; the homo domesticus, so Jewish and so German and so eager to keep his place. Borges described Kafka’s characterisation in such a manner. This volume includes some of his most famous stories.

Description

This collection of new translations brings together the small proportion of Kafka’s works that he himself 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, and The Aeroplanes at Brescia, Kafka’s eyewitness account of an air display in 1909. Together, these stories reveal the breadth of Kafka’s literary vision and the extraordinary imaginative depth of his thought.
