More information about the product

Author: Franz Kafka
Publisher: Schocken Books
Language: angličtina
Release year: 1999

From the author of The Metamorphosis and The Trial –one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century – the haunting tale of K.'s relentless, unavailing struggle with an inscrutable authority in order to gain access to the Castle. 

Arriving in a village to take up the position of land surveyor for the mysterious lord of a castle, the character known as K. finds himself in a bitter and baffling struggle to contact his new employer and go about his duties.

The Castle's original manuscript was left unfinished by Kafka in 1922 and not published until 1926, two years after his death. Scrupulously following the fluidity and breathlessness of the sparsely punctuated original manuscript, Mark Harman's new translation reveals levels of comedy, energy, and visual power previously unknown to English language readers.

Part of the beautiful edition of Kafka's works by the Schocken Books.
