Franz Kafka


The protagonist of this Kafka classic, K., finds himself in a faraway, snow-covered village with a castle looming above. The inhabitants of the mysterious castle are also the strict officials who govern the village. When K. tries to reach out to the officials, he gets himself into a complex misunderstanding over the contradictory rules and regulations that dictate the daily life of the villagers. The Castle explores the conflicting tension of power between individuals-represented by K.-and the authorities-the officials in the castle.

Praise for The Castle:

“Artwork that is . . . suggestive of woodcuts and expressionism in general and German artist Käthe Kollwitz in particular.” -Booklist
