The Trial - Franz Kafka

Minerva, 1992, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good.

From the cover: “The Trial was the first of Kafka’s books to appear as a Penguin. The work of this strange and mystifying Czech writer, who died of consumption in 1924, has earned him a unique reputation in modern European literature and has provoked many endeavours to ‘interpret’ his view of life. The Trial relates the perplexing experiences of a man ostensibly arrested on a charge which is never specified, but within the pattern of the complicated narrative Kafka is trying to elucidate some of the fundamental dilemmas of human life. The story is a Pilgrim’s Progress of the subconscious, the phantasmagoria of a sensitive mind oppressed and bewildered by the burden of living. It reads like the transcript of a protracted, implacable dream in which reality is entangled with imagination.”
