Author(s): Franz Kafka
K is the unwanted Land Surveyor who is never to be admitted to the Castle nor accepted in the village. As he encounters dualities of certainty and doubt, hope and fear, and reason and nonsense, K's struggles in the absurd, labyrinthine world where he finds himself seem to reveal a truth about the nature of existence. This work presents his story.
Franz Kafka (1883-1924) was born of Jewish parents in Prague. Several of his story collections were published in his lifetime and his novels, The Trial, The Castle, and Amerika, were published posthumously by his editor Max Brod. Translated by J. A. Underwood With an Introduction by Idris Parry
