The trial /
Franz Kafka ; translated by David Wyllie.
|Main Creator:||Kafka, Franz, 1883-1924, author.|
On his thirtieth birthday, Josef K. is arrested by two unidentified agents for an unspecified crime. In The Trial, Kafka brings us a nightmarish vision of the irrationality and blindness of modern bureaucracy in twentieth-century totalitarian regimes as the narrative is driven by a terrifying inevitability, driving the protagist towards a meaningless and helpless demise. The Trial is an existential masterpiece that resonates strongly with modern audiences.
Note: Translated from the German.
First published: 1925.
