Der Prozess; Roman by Franz Kafka ( Book )
305 editions published between 1925 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,752 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Jemand mußte Josef K. verleumdet haben, denn ohne daß er etwas Böses getan hätte, wurde er eines Morgens verhaftet." So beginnt die Geschichte des Josef K., dem an seinem 30. Geburtstag von einer mysteriösen Behörde der Prozeß gemacht werden soll. Und je mehr der Bankbeamte seine Unschuld verteidigen will, um so tiefer sinkt er ins Gestrüpp undurchschaubarer Gesetze und menschlicher Verwirrungen. Josef K. muß schließlich erkennen, daß der "Sinn dieser großen Organisation, dieser korrupten Bande", der Sinn dieses geheimnisvollen Prozesses die "Sinnlosigkeit" ist. "Der Prozeß" ist ein großes Werk der Weltliteratur. Die Bedeutung für das 20. Jahrhundert kann nicht überschätzt werden: Denn der Prozeß, den Josef K. über sich ergehen lassen muß, ist auch ein Prozeß, den er, unschuldig-schuldig, sich selbst macht und verlieren muß

Letters to Milena by Franz Kafka ( Book )
221 editions published between 1952 and 2013 in 13 languages and held by 730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In no other work does Franz Kafka reeal himself as in Letters to Milena, which begins as a business correspondence but soon develops into a passionate but doomed epistolary love affair. Kafka's Czech translator, Milena Jesenska was a gifted and charismatic twenty-three-year-old who was uniquely able to recognize Kafka's complex genius and his even more complex character. For the thrity-six-year-old Kafka, she was "a living fire, such as I have never seen." It was to Milena that he revealed his most intimate self and, eventually, entrusted his diaries for safekeeping. "The voice of Kafka in Letters to Milena is more personal, more pure, and more painful than in his fiction: a testimony to human existence and to our eternal wait for the impossible. A marvelous new edition of a classic text." 'Jan Kott
