In the bizarre world of Franz Kafka, salesmen turn into giant bugs, apes give lectures at college academies, and nightmares probe the mysteries of modern humanityâs unhappiness. More than any other modern writer in world literature, Kafka captures the loneliness and misery that fill the lives of 20th-century humanity. The Metamorphosis and Other Stories reveals the authorâs extraordinary talent in a variety of formsâprose poems, short stories, sketches, allegories, and novelettesâand showcases the straightâfaced humor, startling psychological insight, and haunting imagination for which he is revered as a modern master. In this brilliant new translation, prizeâwinning translator Joachim Neugroschel preserves the delicate balance, rich timbre, and wondrous language of Kafkaâs original works. In addition to The Metamorphosis, this collection includes Early Stories, Contemplation, The Judgement, The Stoker, In the Penal Colony, and A Country Doctor.
