About Franz Kafka

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) has come to be one of the most influential writers of this century. None of Kafka's novels was printed during his lifetime, and it was only with reluctance that he published a fraction of his shorter fiction. This fiction included Meditation (1913); The Judgment (1913); The Metamorphosis (1915); In the Penal Colony (1919); The Trial (1925); The Castle (1926) and Amerika (1927)show more
