In the bizarre world of Franz Kafka, salesmen turn into giant bugs, apes give lectures at college academies, and nightmares probe the mysteries of modern humanity's unhappiness. More than any other modern writer in world literature, Kafka captures the loneliness and misery that fill the lives of 20th-century humanity. The Metamorphosis and Other Stories reveals the author's extraordinary talent in a variety of forms - prose poems, short stories, sketches, allegories, and novelettes - and showcases the straight - faced humor, startling psychological insight, and haunting imagination for which he is revered as a modern master. In this brilliant new translation, prize - winning translator Joachim Neugroschel preserves the delicate balance, rich timbre, and wondrous language of Kafka's original works. In addition to The Metamorphosis, this collection includes Early Stories, Contemplation, The Judgement, The Stoker, In the Penal Colony, and A Country Doctor.

    " Most boring book I've ever started and then taken back to the library in fear my brain would seep out of my ear at night in search of a more stimulation in the head of a squirrel. "

    " 5 stars just for a totally leftfield idea considering when this was written "

    " Haunting, existentialism at its height. The Metamorphosis is the standard model for the absurdity of life. The other stories are good, too. I found "In the Penal Colony" to be poignant. These are my opinions, read them and make your own! "
