Summary: 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, Kafka begins his masterpiece, TheMetamorphosis. 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 absur ...show moredly comic -- meditation on human feelings of inadequecy, guilt, and isolation, The Metamorphosis has taken its place as one of the most widely read and influential works of twentieth-century fiction. As W.H. Auden wrote," Kafka is important to us because his predicamentis the predicament of modern man." For the first time in fifty years, the great short works - including such classics of modern fiction as The Metamorphosis, The Judgment, and The Stoker - are given a new life in an English free of anachronism. These new translations bring to light more clearly one of this century's most controversial and thought-provoking writers. Translated by PEN Translation Award-winner Joachim Neugroschel, The Metamorphosis, In the Penal Colony, and Other Stories garnered critical acclaim and has made Kafka's work accessible to a whole new generation. This edition anthologizes twenty-eight of Kafka's best short works, including In the Penal Colony, which is new to this collection. The best-known novellas and stories of one of the seminal writers of the twentieth century. Included are "The Judgment, " "A Country Doctor, " and "A Hunger Artist." New Foreword by Anne Rice. ...show less
