Description

Franz Kafka is one of the most important figures in twentieth century culture The fascination of his work has long since reached international proportions, and the concept Kafkaesque has entered the English Language as an everyday part of speech This new edition of Kafka s famous story contains a critical introduction and notes which help to explain how the author achieves his particular effects The editors are concerned less with what the story means then with how it blocks and baffles its reader, provoking them into an interpretation through its combination of clues and counter clues, its questions and its uncertainties Careful attention is therefore paid to the openness of the text, to point of view, and to Kafka s use of language The editors also consider the important biographical and cultural influences which shaped the writing of the story, and they outline some of the very different ways in which it has been interpreted biographically, socially and psychologically A select vocabulary, aimed at the demands of the sixth form pupil, is also included, and the text itself is taken from the original hardback edition.

Die Verwandlung By Franz Kafka

Gregor waking up one morning as a bug was a hilarious analogy of the effects an illness can have on someone, as well as on those who are close to him Though the underlying story behind the hilarity of the analogy was anything but funny I took it as of a warning of what NOT to do when a loved one is...
