Everymans Library pursues the highest standards, utilizing modern prepress, printing, and binding technologies to produce classically designed books printed on acid-free natural-cream-colored text paper and including Smyth-sewn, signatures, full-cloth cases with two-color case stamping, decorative endpapers, silk ribbon markers, and European-style half-round spines.

Synopsis:

(Book Jacket Status: Jacketed)

The story of the mysterious indictment, trial, and reckoning forced upon Joseph K. in Franz Kafkas The Trial is one of the twentieth centurys master parables, reflecting the central spiritual crises of modern life. Kafkas method-one that has influenced, in some way, almost every writer of substance who followed him-was to render the absurd and the terrifying convincing by a scrupulous, hyperreal matter-of-factness of tone and treatment. He thereby imparted to his work a level of seriousness normally associated with civilizations most cherished poems and religious texts.

Translated by Willa and Edwin Muir

Synopsis:

Introduction by George Steiner; Translation by Willa and Edwin Muir

kathryn axelrod, March 27, 2008 (view all comments by kathryn axelrod)
The Trial is a somewhat fragmented and obscure novel about a man going to trial for unknown crimes in an elusive legal system.
Though I did enjoy the book, I would rate it at a 3.5 as I didn't walk away stunned, nor was I unable to put it down.
If you are looking for an introduction to Kafka, I would probably recommend Amerika instead. But, if you've read and like other Kafka stories, The Trial shouldn't disappoint.
