Rate this:
Students of German language and literature will welcome this dual-language edition of five stories by Franz Kafka (1883-1924). Considered one of the greatest modern writers, Kafka's work brilliantly explores the anxiety, futility and complexity of modern life. The stories in this volume are "The Metamorphosis" (thought by many critics to be Kafka's most perfect work), "The Judgment," "In the Penal Colony," "A Country Doctor" and "A Report to an Academy." Along with the original German texts, Stanley Appelbaum has provided accurate English translations on facing pages, affording students an ideal opportunity to read some of Kafka's finest stories in the original, to discover the passion and profundity of this extremely important figure in modern European literature, and to upgrade their German language skills at the same time. Original Dover (1997) selection of stories reprinted from standard German editions.
