Description:

Translated from the German by Willa and Edwin Muir. 8vo: xii,395,[1]pp. Publisher's French blue finely woven cloth, upper cover and spine lettered in gilt, correct typographic dust jacket designated second edition and priced 7s/6d. About Fine, with hint of fading to blue spine; crisp prewar dust jacket, with spine panel slightly toned. Second Edition of Franz Kafka's great novel (his third and final) of alienation and the overweening state. Kafka began writing The Castle on the evening of 27 January 1922, the day he arrived at the mountain sanitarium of Spindlermühle (now in the Czech Republic). He died before finishing the novel and it is questionable whether he intended to finish had he survived his tuberculosis. The Castle was originally published in German in 1926 by Joella Goodman of Munich, selling fewer than the 1500 copies, then four years later, in London, in an English translation by Martin Secker (the first of Kafka's books to appear in English, preceding editions of The Trial and Metamorphosis by some seven years). It was republished in German in 1935 by Schocken Verlag in Berlin, and again in English in 1946 by Schocken Books of New York. "The Castle has neither the broad picaresque canvas of the America novel, nor the dramatic urgency of The Trial, but instead presents us with a study of character and situation in which the smallest details acquire significance. . . . The novel contains esoteric references to the Bible, Greek mythology, and Jewish mysticism, and is thought to reflect Kafka's interest in Schopenhauer and Kierkegaard, which had informed a series of aphorisms he had written in 1917-1918. . . ."
