A companion volume to The Great Wall of China and Other Short Works, these new translations bring together the small proportion of Kafka's works that he thought worthy of publication. This volume contains his most famous story. The Transformation, more popularly known as Metamorphosis. Other works include Meditation, a collection of his earlier studies; The Judgement, written in a single night of frenzied creativity; The Stoker, the first chapter of a novel set in America; and A Fasting Artist, a collection of stories written towards the end of Kafka's life. There is also a fascinating occasional piece, The Aeroplanes at Brescia, Kafka's eye-witness account of an air display in 1909. Taken together, these stories reveal the breadth of Kafka's literary vision and the extraordinary imaginative depth of his thought. @bugged-out I seem to have transformed into a large bug.

3.0 The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka
It makes me suspicious when a book’s most frequently quoted line is the very first line. This may mean that a book goes downhill after a glorious opening, or it could mean that the vast majority of readers don’t actually understand the book, and therefore resort to quoting the first line in the hope...

An Introduction To A Poet………………David Lloyd.One of the wonderful things about writing about poetry is the learning curve I find myself on, sometimes when I'm introducing a specific poet the introduction is not only to those reading the post, but to myself as well.
