Kafka : The Decisive Years
This is the first of a three-volume, definitive biography of Kafka who, eighty years after his death in 1924, remains one of the most intriguing figures in the history of world literature. Now, after a decade's research, Stach recreates the atmosphere in which Kafka lived and worked from 1910 to 1915. These are the years of Kafka's fascination with early forms of Zionism, his on/off engagement, the outbreak of World War I, and - above all - the composition of his seminal works "The Metamorphosis", "Amerika", The Judgement, and "The Trial".
