THE CASTLE


THE CASTLE

FRANZ KAFKA    Book Number: 59994    Product format: Paperback

Translated and with an introduction by John R. Williams in 2009 which reads, 'The novel remained unfinished, indeed, it breaks off in mid-sentence. We have no indication whatever whether K will ever gain acceptance or be granted access to Klamm. Max Brod claimed that Kafka told him K was to be informed on his death bed that the Castle authorities had, exceptionally, given him permission to stay in the village.' Kafka's final novel was written during 1922 when he was already at an advanced stage of TB which was to kill him. The novel is enigmatic and an allegory of the sprawling Austro-Hungarian Empire as it disintegrates into modern nation states. It is the search by a central European Jew for acceptance or perhaps it is a spiritual quest for grace or salvation. 283pp in new Wordsworth paperback.
