Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka( Book )

1,978 editions published between 1900 and 2017 in 28 languages and held by 8,145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A novel about a man who finds himself transformed into a huge insect, and the effects of this change upon his life. This is a fantastic horror story about a hapless man who is turned into an insect. 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, 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
Amerika by Franz Kafka( Book )

896 editions published between 1900 and 2016 in 33 languages and held by 6,452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is the story of young Karl Rossman, who, following an incident involving a housemaid, is banished by his parents to America. With unquenchable optimism and in the company of two comic-sinister companions, he throws himself into misadventure, eventually heading towards Oklahoma, where a career in the theater beckons. Though we can never know how Kafka planned to end the novel, Harman's superb translation allows us to appreciate, as closely as possible, what Kafka did commit to the page

Dearest Father by Franz Kafka( Book )

339 editions published between 1919 and 2017 in 11 languages and held by 934 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der 1919 abgefasste Brief an den Vater, von Franz Kafka niemals abgeschickt oder veröffentlicht, gibt wie kaum ein anderer Text aus seiner Feder tiefe biografische und psychoanalytische Einblicke. Kafka findet in dem hier beschriebenen Vaterkonflikt vielerlei Gründe für die Entwicklung seines zögerlichen Wesens und anderer Züge seiner Persönlichkeit mit denen er zeitlebens haderte. Die 103 handschriftlichen Seiten schrieb Kafka vermutlich kurz nach dem Scheitern seiner Heiratspläne mit Julie Wohryceck, einer in seines Vaters Augen nicht standesgemäßen Verbindung. Gesprochen hat der Hamburger Schauspieler Martin Brücker, der hier zum erstenmal für den HörGut! Verlag liest
In der Strafkolonie : eine Geschichte aus d. Jahre 1914 by Franz Kafka( Book )

213 editions published between 1914 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 889 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story is set in an unnamed penal colony. As in some of Kafka's other writings, the narrator in this story seems detached from, or perhaps numbed by, events that one would normally expect to be registered with horror. In the Penal Colony describes the last use of an elaborate torture and execution device that carves the sentence of the condemned prisoner on his skin before letting him die, all in the course of twelve hours. As the plot unfolds, the reader learns more and more about the machine, including its origin and original justification. (Excerpt from Wikipedia)

94 editions published between 1958 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These magnificent letters, meticulously set up and annotated, show us aspects of Kafka that were only hinted at in earlier collections and help us trace his development from unhappy young law student and insurance administrator to novelist and short-story writer of originality and genius."--Publishers Weekly "When we turn from Kafka's books to his letters we have a series of self-portraits desperate and courageous, always eager and warm in feeling; the self is lit by fantasy and, of course, by drollery. His candor is of the kind that flies alongside him in the air. He was a marvelous letter writer."--V.S. Pritchett, The New York Review of Books "These letters are like messages from the underground, from the dark side of the moon, presenting aspects of Kafka that would have died with his friends. We meet alternately Kafka the artist, friend, son, father figure, marriage counselor, literary critic, insurance official. ... A full portrait, and a significant contribution to Kafka scholarship." --Smithsonian Magazine "An inside view of a writer who, perhaps more than any other novelist or poet in our century, stands at the center of our culture." --Robert Alter, The New York Times Book Review
