Amerika

Translated by Willa and Edwin Muir Foreword by E.L. Doctorow Afterword by Max Brod Kafka's first and funniest novel, Amerika tells the story of the young immigrant Karl Rossmann who, after an embarrassing sexual misadventure, finds himself "packed off to America" by his parents. Expected to redeem himself in this magical land of opportunity, young Karl is swept up instead in a whirlwind of dizzying reversals, strange escapades, and picaresque adventures. Although Kafka never visited America, images of its vast landscape, dangers, and opportunities inspired this saga of the "golden land." Here is a startlingly modern, fantastic and visionary tale of America "as a place no one has yet seen, in a historical period that can't be identified," writes E.L. Doctorow in his new foreword. "Kafka made his novel from his own mind's mythic elements," Doctorow explains, "and the research data that caught his eye were bent like rays in a field of gravity."

  • "Kafka's novel follows the misadventures of 16-year-old Karl Rossman, a European boy whose parents ship him off to America after he is seduced by a servant girl. On arrival, Karl finds an America only Kafka could have envisioned--and the still hopeful youth is soon set upon by odd circumstance and suspect traveling companions."
  • "Here is the story of young Karl Rossman, who, following an incident involving a housemaid, is banished by his parents to America. With unquenchable optimism and in the company of two comic-sinister companions, he throws himself into misadventure, eventually heading towards Oklahoma, where a career in the theater beckons. Though we can never know how Kafka planned to end the novel, Harman's superb translation allows us to appreciate, as closely as possible, what Kafka did commit to the page."

  • ""Lorsque, à seize ans, le jeune Karl Rossmann, que ses pauvres parents envoyaient en exil parce qu'une bonne l'avait séduit et rendu père, entra dans le port de New York sur le bateau déjà plus lent, la statue de la Liberté, qu'il observait depuis longtemps lui apparut dans un sursaut de lumières. On eût dit que le bras qui brandissait l'épée s'était levé à l'instant même, et l'air libre soufflait autour de ce grand corps ..."
  • "First written in German in 1927, this novel expresses the author's rejection of the capitalist system. Karl Rossman, a young immigrant to America, is snubbed by his relatives, robbed by tramps, and ridiculed in his attempt to find work. Includes an introduction by E.L. Doctorow."
  • "Ervaringen van een 16-jarige Oostenrijkse jongen, die in het begin van de 20ste eeuw geheel alleen in de V.S. belandt."
  • "A new translation of Kafka's unfinished 1927 novel in which young Karl Rossman, banished to America, embarks on a series of misadventures during which he sees the nation from a range of perspectives before landing at the Great Nature Theater of Oklahoma."
  • "Karl Rossman has been banished by his parents to America, following a family scandal. There, with unquenchable optimism, he throws himself into the strange experiences that lie before him as he slowly makes his way into the interior of the great continent. Although Kafka's first novel (begun in 1911 and never finished), can be read as a menacing allegory of modern life, it is also infused with a quite un-Kafkaesque blitheness and sunniness, brought to life in this lyrical translation that returns to the original manuscript of the book."@en

  • "Expelled by his family after seduction by a maidservant, Karl finds in America a series of surrogate families, but he continues to get into undeserved trouble and is forced to move on once again. Along the way Karl encounters extremes of wealth and poverty, experiences the cruelty of the American work ethic, and has glimpses of the criminal underworld, without losing the basic goodness and resourcefulness that enabled him to survive the hazards of the New World."@en
  • "Novel on the bizarre wanderings of a sixteen-year-old European emigrant named Karl Rosmann in the United States, who was forced to go to New York to escape the scandal of his seduction by a housemaid."
  • "The first and most charming of Kafka's three great novels is given full justice in this new translation that returns to the manuscript version of the book."
  • "Nedokoncený román, vrcholné dílo dnes světově uznávaného pražského německého spisovatele. Do příběhu šestnáctiletého chlapce, kterého rodiče z trestu poslali do Ameriky, a jenž bezmocně hledá zakotvení v té zemi divných zvyklostí a čistě obchodního vztahu k člověku, autor promítl mnoho ze svých životních zážitků, zejména ze svého postavení v otcovském domě, kde otec nepřál jeho literárním sklonům."

  • "Franz Kafka's diaries and letters suggest that his fascination with America grew out of a desire to break away from his native Prague, even if only in his imagination. Kafka died before he could finish what he like to call his "American novel,: but he clearly entitled it -- The Castle, From the Hardcover edition."
  • ""El desaparecido es la primera y menos conocida de las tres novelas -todas inacabadas- que Kafka emprendió en el transcurso de su vida. Escrita en su mayor parte entre finales de 1912 y comienzos de 1913, fue publicada póstumamente por Max Brod bajo el título de América, sugerido sin duda por el hecho de que la novela entera transcurre en Est ados Unidos. Kafka, sin embargo, dejó claro su propósito de titularla El desaparecido, indicativo de la condición que determina la atribulada andadura de su protagonista, el joven Karl Rossman, que desde su llegada a Nueva York, expulsado del seno de su familia, se encuentra ya perdido, ><<desaparecido>>, no identificable para los demás ni para sí mismo. El propio Kafka declaraba a Max Brod que esta peculiar novela de formación, escrita bajo el ascendente indisimulado de Charles Dickens, era más esperanzadora y <<luminosa>> que todo cuanto había escrito"--http://www.megustaleer.com."
  • "Roman se pričenja s prihodom petnajstletnega evropskega emigranta Karla Rossmanna v ZDA. Na ladji, ki pluje proti New Yorku, Rosmann sreča ladijskega kurjača, katerega so pravkar odpustili. Postavi se na njegovo stran in prevzame vlogo kurjačevega zagovornika pred kapitanom. V prepletu tipičnih kafkovskih pripetljajev na robu absurda, se junak znajde na ulicah prestolnice sveta, sam in v iskanju nove eksistence. Po seriji dogodkov pride Karl v oblast Delamarcha in Brunelde."@sl
