Product Description

With a new introduction by the lawyer and writer Phillipe SandsThis famous Willa and Edwin Muir translation is exclusively available from Vintage Classics'No other voice has borne truer witness to the dark of our times' George Steiner

‘It is not necessary to accept everything as true, one must only accept it as necessary’

Rediscover Kafka's classic work of psychological horror.

The Trial is the terrifying tale of Joseph K, a respectable functionary in a bank, who is suddenly arrested and must defend his innocence against a charge about which he can get no information. A nightmare vision of the excesses of modern bureaucracy wedded to the insanity of twentieth-century totalitarianism has resonated with readers for generations.

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY PHILLIPE SANDS

It is the fate and perhaps the greatness of that work that it offers everything and confirms nothingThe Dante of the Twentieth CenturyNo other voice has borne truer witness to the dark of our times

About Author

Franz Kafka (1883–1924) was born into a Jewish family in Prague. In 1906 he received a doctorate in jurisprudence, and for many years he worked a tedious job as a civil service lawyer investigating claims at the State Worker's Accident Insurance Institute. He never married, and published only a few slim volumes of stories during his lifetime. Meditation, a collection of sketches, appeared in 1912; The Stoker: A Fragment in 1913; Metamorphosis in 1915; The Judgement in 1916; In the Penal Colony in 1919; and A Country Doctor in 1920. The great novels were not published until after his death from tuberculosis: America, The Trial and The Castle.Edwin Muir (1887 – 1959), one of our most distinguished modern poets, was, too, a traveller, translator, critic and novelist, the author of the famed Structure of the Novel and The Marionette. With his wife, Willa Muir, he was the translator of Kafka's The Castle and The Trial. He received the CBE in 1953, and settled in Cambridgeshire, where he continued to write poetry until his death in 1959.
