Franz Kafka

The Metamorphosis and Other Stories

Since his death in 1924, Kafka has come to be regarded as one of the greatest modern writers, one whose work brilliantly explores the anxiety, futility, and complexity of modern life. The precision and clarity of Kafka's style, its powerful symbolism, and his existential exploration of the human condition have given his work universal significance.
In addition to the title selection, considered by many critics Kafka's most perfect work, this collection includes “The Judgment,” “In the Penal Colony,” “A Country Doctor,” and “A Report to an Academy.” Stanley Appelbaum has provided excellent new English translation of the stories and a brief Note placing them within Kafka's oeuvre.
A selection of the Common Core State Standards Initiative.

    Really good book. Writing style is similar to J.G. Ballard, who wrote science fiction. If you like J.G. Ballard you will probably enjoy Franz Kafka who lived before J.G. Ballard's time.
