I genuinely adore Kafka and I m so glad I got to read a lot of his work this month This collection contains some of his most well known works such as The Trial, The Castle, and The Metamorphosis As for it being essential though, I was disappointed that it doesn t contain The Hunger Artist because that s a story I really wanted to read.I read everything in here apart from the last half of The Castle because I wasn t enjoying the translation, and so I m going to find a better translation of it and [...]
A julgar pelo nome do livro, a colet nea de hist rias s peca por n o conter O Processo e Cartas ao Pai Existem v rios coment rios interessantes feitos pelo tradutor Modesto Carone Muitos dos coment rios s o maiores que os pr prias hist rias e levantam aspectos muito sutis da escrita do Kafka O coment rio que antecede a hist ria Na galeria excelente Dessa cole o de bolso Penguin Companhia da Letras, esse livro tem umas das melhores capas.
I might be being generous with three stars.I ll start by saying the particular cover we got on this books The Wordsworth Classics version was absolutely terrifying and as I had no idea what any of Kafka s stories were about, I didn t know what it was in reference to and I had all sorts of horrendous thoughts about what it could be I m going to be honest and say I was particularly disappointed in this book overall as I d heard such wonderful things about Kafka s work but I really didn t think mos [...]
The Trial Kafka s The Trial follows Josef Ks nightmarish journey to uncover the truth behind his own arrest, and the story is both humorous and disturbing to read Through a labyrinthine law system, filled with menacing law students and lawyers who view themselves as royalty, Ks struggle is in vain The Trail refers not only to his upcoming court procedures, but his endeavor to grasp what is happening to him and why Much of the story works on several levels, with metaphors and questions that have [...]
I wrote separate reviews for every novel and story in this book The Trial, The Castle, The Metamorphosis, In the Penal Colony, The Judgement, and Letter to My Father.It was quiet a ride My feelings towards Kafka are expressed in the following gifs I m not crazy Believe me I M NOT CRAZY I M NOT CRAAAAAAAZY
Al m da boa sele o de textos feitos nesta edi o, o seu grande valor s o o pref cio e os coment rios introdut rios dos textos, trazendo importantes considera es para o melhor entendimento da obra e da genialidade de Franz Kafka.
Kafka s Metamorphosis resonated with me on an unexpected level I enjoyed the ambiguity of its implications, allowing a reader to determine his her personal lens through which to examine it Kafka writes intelligently, further believing his readers are intelligent Being challenged, therefore, to understand his concepts from various angles was a refreshing form of reading I enjoyed The Hunger Artist and Parables , finding The Country Doctor to be confusingly intriguing I haven t read many short sto [...]
The TrialA Little FableA Commentary
Gosto do Kafka, mas achei a colet nea dispens vel Kafka foi um autor que publicou muito pouco, a maioria dos contos dessa colet nea t m 1, 2 p ginas Os coment rios antes de cada conto me parecem meio for ados, bom pul los porque eles cont m spoilers do conto seguinte Alguns coment rios sobre o conto s o maiores do que o pr prio conto Fora A Metamorfose , dois ou tr s contos ali salvam, e a parte de aforismos muito boa de fato um livro bom pra quem deseja estudar Kafka apesar de que as pessoas co [...]
tricky one While clearly well written and deeply engaging, I found large segments of it hard to slog through Mainly, the extensive monologues that pepper the text I couldn t help but feel that, given the manuscript was left unfinished by Kafka before his death, it was missing drafting and editing Nevertheless, the labyrinthine tale of K s attempt to find his way through the unfathomable phantom bureaucracy of the eponymous castle is one of frustration, insecurity, subservience, paranoia and offi [...]
Reviews The Trial The Castle The Metamorphosis and Other Stories
Neste ano, a novela mais famosa de Kafka Praga, 1883 1924 completa um s culo A Metamorfose, escrita em 1912, publicada em 1915 aos 29 anos de idade do autor Em Essencial , o professor e escritor Modesto Carone re ne e comenta este texto e diversos outros por ele traduzidos, formando panorama de uma obra que j foi, n o sem debate, catalogada dentro do realismo, mas sempre tida como enigm tica, existencialista e pol tica.Se o volume traz a aus ncia de O processo e Carta ao Pai, possivelmente n o f [...]
I have to confess, I didn t read all of this in fact I only read The Trial and finishing that was an achievement in itself Basically a story about a well to do bank official, Josef K who is arrested in the first pages on a charge unknown then allowed to continue with his normal life whilst the unknown authorities continue their investigation into him Josef meets with several characters throughout that really bare no significance and are often never mentioned again He talks to people about his tr [...]
Mixed feelings on this one, I enjoyed Metamorphosis the most although I really did not understand the reaction of Gregor s family but confess I had to give up on The Castle There s a lot of obscure social etiquette and musing throughout most of the character interactions that I couldn t wade through any longer
This one cuts deep, with a rusty blade that makes the wound fester Part of me regrets reading it because it makes me melancholy.
A good read, forces are out there working against us and changes are happening which we can t control We can watch how things unfold but are quite often powerless to prevent the inevitable.
three stars for the edition five stras for kafka
