Item Description: Bantam Books, 1979. Mass-market paperback. Text in English, German. Mass market (rack) paperback. Glued binding. Audience: General/trade. Psychological fiction; Philosophy; Alienation. Absurdly comic and yet shocking, a man who feels inadequate awakes one morning to find he had transformed into a "monstrous vermin", a giant beetle-like insect. He becomes an object of disgrace for his family, an alien in his own home. Franz Kafka, b.1883-d.1924 of tuberculosis, had told his friend to burn his writings.

Item Description: Softcover. Book Condition: New. Translated, edited, and with an Introduction by Stanley CorngoldFeaturing essays by Philip Roth, W. H Auden, and Walter Benjamin"When Gregor Samsa woke up one morning from unsettling dreams, he found himself changed in his bed into a monstrous vermin." With this startling, bizarre, yet surprisingly funny first sentence, Franz Kafka begins his masterpiece,The Metamorphosis. It is the story of a young man who, transformed overnight into a giant beetlelike insect, becomes an object of disgrace to his family, an outsider in his own home, a quintessentially alienated man. A harrowing—though absurdly comic—meditation on human feelings of inadequacy, guilt, and isolation, The Metamorphosis has taken its place as one of the most widely read and influential works of twentieth-century fiction.This Modern Library edition collects Stanley Corngold’s acclaimed English translation—long hailed as the gold standard by scholars and general readers alike—along with seven critical essays by writers including Philip Roth, W. H. Auden, and Walter Benjamin, background and contextual material, and a new Introduction from Corngold himself. Bookseller Inventory # 5364991

Item Description: Princeton University Press. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Franz Kafka: The Office Writings, Franz Kafka, Stanley Corngold, Jack Greenberg, Benno Wagner, Eric Patton, Franz Kafka: The Office Writings brings together, for the first time in English, Kafka's most interesting professional writings, composed during his years as a high-ranking lawyer with the largest Workmen's Accident Insurance Institute in the Czech Lands of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Franz Kafka (1883-1924) is commonly recognized as the greatest German prose writer of the twentieth century. It is less well known that he had an established legal career. Kafka's briefs reveal him to be a canny bureaucrat, sharp litigator, and innovative thinker on the social, political, and legal issues of his time. His official preoccupations inspired many of the themes and strategies of the novels and stories he wrote at night. These documents include articles on workmen's compensation and workplace safety; appeals for the founding of a psychiatric hospital for shell-shocked veterans; and letters arguing relentlessly for a salary adequate to his merit. In adjudicating disputes, promoting legislative programs, and investigating workplace sites, Kafka's writings teem with details about the bureaucracy and technology of his day, such as spa elevators in Marienbad, the challenge of the automobile, and the perils of excavating in quarries while drunk. Beautifully translated, with valuable commentary by two of the world's leading Kafka scholars and one of America's most eminent civil rights lawyers, the documents cast rich light on the man and the writer and offer new insights to lovers of Kafka's novels and stories.
