Barnes & Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influences&#151;biographical, historical, and literary&#151;to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works. Virtually unknown during his lifetime, Franz Kafka is now one of the world's most widely read and discussed authors. His nightmarish novels and short stories have come to symbolize modern man's anxiety and alienation in a bizarre, hostile, and dehumanized world. This vision is most fully realized in Kafka's masterpiece, &#147;The Metamorphosis, a story that is both harrowing and amusing, and a landmark of modern literature.Bringing together some of Kafka's finest work, this collection demonstrates the richness and variety of the author's artistry. &#147;The Judgment, which Kafka considered to be his decisive breakthrough, and &#147;The Stoker, which became the first chapter of his novel Amerika, are here included. These two, along with &#147;The Metamorphosis, form a suite of stories Kafka referred to as &#147;The Sons, and they collectively present a devastating portrait of the modern family.Also included are &#147;In the Penal Colony, a story of a torture machine and its operators and victims, and &#147;A Hunger Artist, about the absurdity of an artist trying to communicate with a misunderstanding public. Kafka's lucid, succinct writing chronicles the labyrinthine complexities, the futility-laden horror, and the stifling oppressiveness that permeate his vision of modern life.<P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt>Jason Baker is a writer of short stories living in Brooklyn, New York."

  • "A seemingly ordinary man, Gregor Samsa wakes up one morning only to discover that he has been transformed into a gigantic insect and must deal with the depression over his new physical alteration, as well as the rejection of his family, in a new translation honoring the 125th anniversary of the author's birth."@en
  • "Ranging from prose, poems, sketches, stories, and allegories to his famous three-act novelette "The Metamorphosis", this collection of classic tales reflects the deadpan humor, psychological acuity, and lyricism that shape Kafka's enduring reputation as one of the great writers of modern times. -- Distributed by Syndetic Solutions, LLC."
  • ""When Gregor Samsa woke up one morning from unsettling dreams, he found himself changed in his bed into a monstrous vermin." With this startling, bizarre, yet surprisingly funny first sentence, Kafka begins his masterpiece, The Metamorphosis. It is the story of a young man who, transformed overnight into a giant beetlelike insect, becomes an object of disgrace to his family, an outsider in his own home, a quintessentially alienated man. A harrowing -- though absurdly comic -- meditation on human feelings of inadequecy, guilt, and isolation, The Metamorphosis has taken its place as one of the mosst widely read and influential works of twentieth-century fiction. As W.H. Auden wrote, "Kafka is important to us because his predicament is the predicament of modern man.""@en
