Here is the story of young Karl Rossman, who, following an incident involving a housemaid, is banished by his parents to America.

Dearest Father; stories and other writings by Franz Kafka( Book )

338 editions published between 1954 and 2015 in 9 languages and held by 1,624 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

These diaries cover the years 1910 to 1923, the year before Kafka's death at the age of forty. They provide a penetrating look into life in Prague and into Kafka's accounts of his dreams, his feelings for the father he worshipped and the woman he could not bring himself to marry, his sense of guilt, and his feelings of being an outcast. They offer an account of a life of almost unbearable intensity. From the Trade Paperback edition

Letters to friends, family, and editors by Franz Kafka( Book )

94 editions published between 1958 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 394 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
The castle by Franz Kafka( Book )

18 editions published in 2009 in 5 languages and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kafka's last novel, The Castle is set in a remote village covered almost permanently in snow and dominated by a castle and its staff of dictatorial, sexually predatory bureaucrats. The novel breaks new ground in exploring the relation between the individual and power, asking why the villagers so readily submit to an authority which may exist only in their collective imagination. Published only after Kafka's death, The Castle appeared in the same decade as modernist masterpieces by Eliot, Joyce, Woolf, Mann and Proust, and is among the central works of modern literature. This new translation by prize-winning translator Anthea Bell follows the German text established by critical scholarship, and mentions manuscript variants in the notes. The detailed introduction by Ritchie Robertson, a leading Kafka scholar, explores the many meanings of this famously enigmatic novel, providing guidance without reducing the reader's freedom to make sense of this fascinating novel. In addition, the edition includes a Biographical Preface which places Kafka within the context of his time, plus an up-to-date bibliography and chronology of Kafka's life. - Publisher
