Franz Kafka

Description

Translated and with a preface by Mark Harman

Left unfinished by Kafka in 1922 and not published until 1926, two years after his death, The Castle is the haunting tale of K.’s relentless, unavailing struggle with an inscrutable authority in order to gain access to the Castle. Scrupulously following the fluidity and breathlessness of the sparsely punctuated original manuscript, Mark Harman’s new translation reveals levels of comedy, energy, and visual power previously unknown to English language readers.

Customer Reviews

Classic Kafka, unfinished ends mid-sentence

A great example of Kafka's style, tale about a land surveyor
Trying to gain access to a castle in spite of Bizarre arbitrary regulations and mysterious bureaucrats who no one seems to know what they do or look like, be warned Kafka died 2/3 through the novel so it just stops mid-sentence towards the end.
