Along with original German texts, Stanley Appelbaum has provided accurate English translations on facing pages, affording students and ideal opportunity to read some of Kafka's finest in the original, to discover the passion and profundity of this extremely important figure in modern European literature, and to upgrade their German language skill at the same time.
