Overview

With empathy for the absurd and an intimate understanding of human frustration, Franz Kafka has produced a body of work that offers an intriguing mix of paradox and parable. In this new collection of full-length essays, Harold Bloom and other noted literary critics discuss Kafka's most celebrated novels, including The Castle, The Trial, and the Czech author's seminal work, The Metamorphosis.

The Bloom's Modern Critical Views series presents critical portraits of the writers that are most widely read and studied in high schools and colleges. Each volume opens with an introductory essay by Harold Bloom in which he offers his insights into the author's work and an editor's note that comments on the individual analyses that follow. Also included are bibliographic references, notes on the various contributors, and a useful chronology of the writer's life. Bloom's Modern Critical Views is a critical presentation of those men and women who, from ancient times to the present, have shaped the Western literary tradition.
