The Kafka problem Edited by Angel Flores

It becomes increasingly apparent that Franz Kafka is destined to rank with the great figures of world literature. Since his death in 1924, interest in his strange and disturbing novels and stories has spread around the world. Witness the fact that this anthology of critical writings about Kafka presents studies translated from almost every modern language.

In The Kafka Problem, some forty writers and critics of Europe and the two Americas analyze different aspects of Kafka's genius. Among them are W. H. Auden, Austin Warren, Jean Wahl, Albert Camus, Renato Poggioli, E. Martinez Estrada, Max Lerner, Franz Werfel, Denis Saurat, Max Brod, D. S. Savage and Bernard Groethuysen. Their essays probe the relationship between Kafka, the man, and Kafka, the writer. They evaluate the influence of his literary, philosophical and religious heritage. And they provide detailed commentaries on his three great novels and many of his shorter stories. New light is thrown on Kafka's personal life by the reminiscences of several friends, and previously unpublished photographs are included. There is also a comprehensive bibliography.
