&&LP style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"&&RAll editions are beautifully designed and are printed to superior specifications; some include illustrations of historical interest. &&LI&&RBarnes & Noble Classics &&L/I&&Rpulls together a constellation of influences―biographical, historical, and literary―to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works.&&L/P&&R&&L/DIV&&R&&L/DIV&&R&&L/DIV&&R&&LDIV&&R &&L/DIV&&R&&LDIV&&RVirtually unknown during his lifetime, &&LB&&RFranz Kafka&&L/B&&R is now one of the world’s most widely read and discussed authors. His nightmarish novels and short stories have come to symbolize modern man’s anxiety and alienation in a bizarre, hostile, and dehumanized world. This vision is most fully realized in Kafka’s masterpiece, “&&LI&&RThe Metamorphosis&&L/I&&R,” a story that is both harrowing and amusing, and a landmark of modern literature. &&LP&&RBringing together some of Kafka’s finest work, this collection demonstrates the richness and variety of the author’s artistry. “&&LI&&RThe Judgment&&L/I&&R,” which Kafka considered to be his decisive breakthrough, and “&&LI&&RThe Stoker&&L/I&&R,” which became the first chapter of his novel &&LI&&RAmerika&&L/I&&R, are here included. These two, along with “&&LI&&RThe Metamorphosis&&L/I&&R,” form a suite of stories Kafka referred to as “The Sons,” and they collectively present a devastating portrait of the modern family. &&L/P&&R&&LP&&RAlso included are “&&LI&&RIn the Penal Colony&&L/I&&R,” a story of a torture machine and its operators and victims, and “&&LI&&RA Hunger Artist&&L/I&&R,” about the absurdity of an artist trying to communicate with a misunderstanding public. Kafka’s lucid, succinct writing chronicles the labyrinthine complexities, the futility-laden horror, and the stifling oppressiveness that permeate his vision of modern life. &&L/P&&R&&LP style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"&&R&&LSTRONG&&RJason Baker&&L/B&&R&&L/B&&R is a writer of short stories living in Brooklyn, New York.&&L/P&&R&&L/DIV&&R
