The Metamorphosis and Other Stories by Franz Kafka Summary

A man awakens to find himself transformed into a giant vermin; a performer starves himself to death as a circus attraction; a fiendish engine of capital punishment engraves the letter of the law into the body of the condemned. Such are the nightmare scenarios that emerge in the short stories of Franz Kafka, one of the twentieth century’s most formative, mystifying literary figures. Though immediate in their impact, Kafka’s stories invite endless angles of interpretation, from Freudian psychology and existentialist philosophy to animal studies. This volume presents “The Metamorphosis”—together with several other of Kafka’s best and best-known stories—in a nuanced, clear, and powerful translation by Ian Johnston. The appendices provide philosophical, literary, and cultural context, as well as valuable selections from Kafka’s own letters and drawings.

Metamorphosis and Other Stories by Franz Kafka Summary

This collection of new translations brings together the small proportion of Kafka's works that he himself thought worthy of publication. It includes Metamorphosis, his most famous work, an exploration of horrific transformation and alienation; 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 fascinating occasional piece, and The Aeroplanes at Brescia, Kafka's eyewitness account of an air display in 1909. Together, these stories reveal the breadth of Kafka's literary vision and the extraordinary imaginative depth of his thought.

The Metamorphosis and Other Stories by Franz Kafka Summary

“The Metamorphosis,” Franz Kafka’s best-known story, is both harrowing and amusing, a landmark in modern literature and the epitome of Kafka’s parabolic style. Kafka’s lucid, succinct writing strikingly contrasts with the labyrinthine complexities, the futility-laden horror, and the stifling oppressiveness that permeate his vision of modern life. His nightmarish novels and short stories have come to symbolize the anxiety and alienation of mankind in the modern world—as Kafka saw it, a bizarre, hostile, and dehumanized place. Virtually unknown during his lifetime, Franz Kafka is now one of the world’s most widely read and discussed authors. Bringing together some of Kafka’s finest work, this collection demonstrates the richness and variety of the author’s artistry. Both “The Judgment,” which Kafka considered to be his decisive breakthrough, and “The Stoker,” which became the first chapter of his novel Amerika, are included. These two, along with “The Metamorphosis,” form a suite of stories Kafka referred to as “The Sons,” and collectively they 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,” a tale about the absurdity of an artist trying to communicate with a misunderstanding public.

The Essential Kafka by Franz Kafka Summary

Franz Kafka has given his name to a world of nightmare, but in Kafka's world, it is never completely clear just what the nightmare is. Kafka deals in dark and quirkily humorous terms with the insoluble dilemmas of a world which offers no reassurance, and no reliable guidance to resolving our existential and emotional uncertainties and anxieties.

L'homme au complet gris by Sloan WILSON Summary

Dans la lignée de La Fenêtre panoramique de Richard Yates, un best-seller d'après-guerre aux États-Unis, oublié ensuite car jugé trop bourgeois par la vague hippie et enfin salué dans les années 80 comme une œuvre majeure. Traduit dans plus de vingt-cinq langues, adapté au cinéma en 1956, source d'inspiration de la série Mad Men, L'Homme au complet gris retrace l'émouvante trajectoire d'un homme tiraillé entre amour familial et ambition sociale, dans le Manhattan des années 50. Un livre culte. A New York, dans les années 1950 " Le complet gris ", c'est l'uniforme de l'Américain moyen, celui qui arrive tous les jours de sa banlieue pour travailler dans un quelconque gratte-ciel. Il est jeune encore, il a une femme et trois enfants, son travail ne l'intéresse pas beaucoup et la grande aventure de sa vie a été la guerre. Il a de l'ambition pourtant et en Amérique ambition égale argent ; il faut gagner beaucoup d'argent pour être un homme. Il accepte la situation d'avenir que lui offre un magnat de la télévision, mais cela veut dire de longues heures de travail, des absences, presque plus de vie de famille. Alors, non. L'homme s'aperçoit que son ambition, c'est de vivre en paix avec sa conscience et de vivre heureux auprès des siens. Et le destin lui donnera l'un et l'autre, une réussite qui ne sera pas une réussite sociale, mais une réussite humaine. Un livre bouleversant de tendresse, de vérité, d'émotion, un livre qui rend un son nouveau et inattendu dans la littérature américaine et que toute l'Amérique a salué comme un des meilleurs romans contemporains.

La langue sauvée by Elias Canetti Summary

La langue sauvée constitue le premier volet de l'autobiographie d'Elias Canetti, prix Nobel de littérature. L'intellectuel, l'homme de toutes les tentatives, revient pour la première fois sur sa propre vie et parle de son enfance en Bulgarie, en Angleterre, en Autriche et en Suisse. L'origine espagnole de sa famille, le caractère quasi oriental de ce confluent de langues et de races qu'est la petite ville bulgare où il est né, le mode de vie patriarcal sous la houlette d'un grand-père tout-puissant qui s'inscrit encore dans la tradition des juifs séfarades d'origine espagnole, le déclenchement de la Première Guerre mondiale vécu dans la Vienne impériale, les années de guerre et d'immédiat après-guerre... tout cela constitue la riche toile de fond qui nourrit les observations de l'enfant. Mais au-delà, c'est l'éducation sentimentale et l'intensité des premières révélations sur le cœur humain qui nous retiennent. Car tout ici parle au cœur : l'amour du père dont la mort prématurée délivre à l'enfant sa propre crainte de la mort ; le rapport à la mère qui lui ouvre les portes du vaste monde de la langue et de la littérature ; les premières inimitiés et toutes les petites expériences quotidiennes déterminantes ; et, enfin, l'écroulement nécessaire de l'enfance.
