Summary
"A suppressor of his own writings, Franz Kafka even requested that upon his death all his extant works be destroyed--yet those very works accurately prefigured the anxietes and alienation so commonly associated with the latter part of the 20th century. This ageless program delves into Kafka's fictional world, primarily through a gripping dramatization of The trial, a combination of simple tale and complex parable describing Joseph K.'s bizarre arrest and execution. Professor George Steiner, of Geneva University, sheds light on the wellsprings of Kafka's disturbingly prescient vision."--Container
