“The Metamorphosis,” Franz Kafka’s best-known story, is both harrowing and amusing, a landmark in modern literature and the epitome of Kafka’s parabolic style. Kafka’s lucid, succinct writing strikingly contrasts with the labyrinthine complexities, the futility-laden horror, and the stifling oppressiveness that permeate his vision of modern life. His nightmarish novels and short stories have come to symbolize the anxiety and alienation of mankind in the modern world—as Kafka saw it, a bizarre, hostile, and dehumanized place. Virtually unknown during his lifetime, Franz Kafka is now one of the world’s most widely read and discussed authors. Bringing together some of Kafka’s finest work, this collection demonstrates the richness and variety of the author’s artistry. Both “The Judgment,” which Kafka considered to be his decisive breakthrough, and “The Stoker,” which became the first chapter of his novel Amerika, are included. These two, along with “The Metamorphosis,” form a suite of stories Kafka referred to as “The Sons,” and collectively they present a devastating portrait of the modern family. Also included are “In the Penal Colony,” a story of a torture machine and its operators and victims, and “A Hunger Artist,” a tale about the absurdity of an artist trying to communicate with a misunderstanding public.

Franz Kafka has given his name to a world of nightmare, but in Kafka's world, it is never completely clear just what the nightmare is. Kafka deals in dark and quirkily humorous terms with the insoluble dilemmas of a world which offers no reassurance, and no reliable guidance to resolving our existential and emotional uncertainties and anxieties.
