Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"At the end of the book one is so unusually impressed by its solidity of conception and execution that although its inner meaning is still not entirely clear, one feels that with time and reflection one could come to an understanding of every portion of its rich and intricate symbolism."

Gerald Sykes, Nation, 10/15/1930

Review:

"Kafka's prose is admirably exact and direct and his incidents range from the comic through romantic and tragic, with many shifting lights and shades of emotion."

New York Times, 12/21/1930

Book Description: Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reissue. 196 x 130 mm. Brand New Book. K. kept feeling that he had lost himself, or was further away in a strange land than anyone had ever been before A remote village covered almost permanently in snow and dominated by a castle and its staff of dictatorial, sexually predatory bureaucrats - this is the setting for Kafka s story about a man seeking both acceptance in the village and access to the castle. Kafka breaks new ground in evoking a dense village community fraught with tensions, and recounting an often poignant, occasionally farcical love-affair. He also explores the relation between the individual and power, and asks why the villagers so readily submit to an authority which may exist only in their collective imagination. Published only after Kafka s death, The Castle appeared in the same decade as modernist masterpieces by Eliot, Joyce, Woolf, Mann and Proust, and is among the central works of modern literature. This translation follows the text established by critical scholarship, and manuscript variants are mentioned in the notes. The introduction provides guidance to the text without reducing the reader s own freedom to make sense of this fascinatingly enigmatic novel. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World s Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford s commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.
