"The Metamorphosis and Other Stories," by Franz Kafka, is part of the ""Barnes & Noble Classics" "series, which offers quality editions at affordable prices to the student and the general reader, including new scholarship, thoughtful design, and pages of carefully crafted extras. Here are some of the remarkable features of "Barnes & Noble Classics":
Bringing together some of Kafka's finest work, this collection demonstrates the richness and variety of the author's artistry. ""The Judgment,"" which Kafka considered to be his decisive breakthrough, and ""The Stoker,"" which became the first chapter of his novel "Amerika," are here included. These two, along with ""The Metamorphosis,"" form a suite of stories Kafka referred to as "The Sons," and they collectively present a devastating portrait of the modern family.
Also included are ""In the Penal Colony,"" a story of a torture machine and its operators and victims, and ""A Hunger Artist,"" about the absurdity of an artist trying to communicate with a misunderstanding public. Kafka's lucid, succinct writing chronicles the labyrinthine complexities, the futility-laden horror, and the stifling oppressiveness that permeate his vision of modern life. Jason Baker is a writer of short stories living in Brooklyn, New York.
