Franz Kafka (1883 - 1924) Franz Kafka nació en Praga el 3 de Julio de 1883, en el seno de una acomodada familia de comerciantes judíos de lengua alemana. A los 23 años se doctoró en derecho. Al año siguiente padeció los primeros síntomas de tuberculosis. A pesar de la enfermedad, de la hostilidad de su familia hacia su vocación literaria, de sus cinco tentativas matrimoniales frustradas y de su empleo de burócrata en una compañía de seguros, Franz Kafka se dedicó intensamente a la literatura. Su escritura se caracteriza por una síntesis entre el absurdo, la ironía y la lucidez. Un mundo de sueños que, paradójicamente, describe con un realismo minucioso. Kafka sólo publicó, en vida, algunas historias cortas. Su obra pasó casi inadvertida. Ella nos ha llegado en contra de su voluntad, pues ordenó a su íntimo amigo y albacea literario Max Brod que, a su muerte, quemara todos sus manuscritos. Gracias a que Brod no obedeció la orden, se salvó una de las cumbres de la literatura alemana. Su originalidad y el inmenso valor literario de su obra le han valido una posición privilegiada, casi mítica, en la literatura contemporánea. Kafka murió cerca de Viena a los 40 años, el 3 de junio de 1924, víctima de la tuberculosis.

La condena - En los últimos años la suerte ha favorecido a Georg Bendeman, por el contrario, su buen amigo afincado en Rusia está en plena crisis existencial. Georg ha ido ocultando sus éxitos a su amigo por miedo a que éste pueda sentirse acomplejado, pero un día decide que lo más justo es contarle la verdad. Antes de escribirle, va a pedir consejo a su padre quien aprovechará la ocasión para expresar su descontento y recriminarle por su actitud. Se trata de un relato corto y profundo que habla sobre las limitaciones de la amistad, la envidia y la rivalidad entre padres e hijos.

Listener Opinions

    " Nem eu mesma consigo entender porque não gosto de F. Kafka, mas digeri Metamorfose e consegui tirar algo bom dali - a compreensão de que bato de frente com boa parte dos autores e suas filosofias/ideologias. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben | 5/30/2011

    " Great quick read and it seems to be a great intro to Kafkas work "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 5/30/2011

    " This is perhaps my all time favourite novella. Not only is it a nightmarish, heartbreaking novel, but it's also quite funny in parts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 5/30/2011

    " Unbelievably depressing. I picked up this book because 1) It was free and 2) Who doesn't love a story about a guy who turns into a giant insect? But it was nothing like I expected. I wanted a fable like Alice in Wonderland and I got a critique on capitalism. Oh well. It was still worth reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maria | 5/29/2011

    " Un libro que lo pone a uno a pensar. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ani | 5/27/2011

    " A different perspective about a burden in the family...maybe the more realistic version!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica Marie | 5/25/2011

    " Like most other literature students (I imagine), I sort of want to set this book on fire and watch it burn from a safe distance, but Kafka is one of the most profilic writers of the 20th century. Worth a read if you feel a bit grey or sort of insect like. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rubio | 5/24/2011

    " La mejor traducción al castellano de esta obra es la Jorge Luis Borges. No puedo creer que haya tantas personas que den una puntuación tan baja a esta obra. Evidentemente hay mucha gente que se acostumbró a comer en McDonald`s y ya no puede saborear otra cosa... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zachary | 5/24/2011

    " Probably one of the saddest stories about human existence and family. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anthony | 5/23/2011

    " Hadn't read this since college, which is to say, 40 years ago. So of course I remembered nothing. It was a revelation to realize how simply written but overwhelmingly strange this story is. It really sets the bar for tales of personal alienation within the family and society. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Juan | 5/23/2011

    " Tan actual en aquel entonces como ahora. No nos convertimos en cucarachas (o escarabajos), porque seguimos siendo lo que somos en nuestros trabajos afines al sistema. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abbie | 5/22/2011

    " This story disturbed and fascinated me all at the same time. The catalyst is sort of gross, but the metaphor is amazing. I never want to be like his family. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alicia | 5/22/2011

    " Very dense. Very short. Very symbolic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tbergamin | 5/22/2011

    " I read this book when I was fourteen - a long, long time ago - and I still remember it. This book made a lasting impression on me and rate it in the top 5 of books I have ever read. "

About the Author
Author Franz Kafka

Franz Kafka (1883–1924), one of the major fiction writers of the twentieth century, was born to a middle-class German-speaking Jewish family in Prague. His unique body of writing, much of which is incomplete and was mainly published posthumously, is considered by some people to be among the most influential in Western literature, inspiring such writers as Albert Camus, Rex Warner, and Samuel Beckett.
