Metamorphosis and Other Stories (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition)by Franz Kafka
Synopses & Reviews
For the 125th anniversary of Kafka's birth, an astonishing new translation of his best-known stories, in a spectacular graphic package
For all his fame, Franz Kafka published only a small number of stories in his lifetime. This new translation of those stories, by Michael Hofmann, one of the most respected German-to-English translators at work today, makes Kafka's best-known works available to a new generation of readers. Metamorphosis gives full expression to the breadth of Kafka's literary vision and the extraordinary depth of his imagination.
For the 125th anniversary of Kafka's birth comes an astonishing new translation of his best-known stories, in a spectacular graphic package.
