9780140044416: Wedding Preparations in the Country (Modern Classics)

Wedding Preparations in the Country is a fragmented narrative by Franz Kafka, written between 1907 and 1909 and published posthumously. The story itself, namely the journey of the unhappy bridegroom Raban to his bride out in the country, is embedded in a meticulous description of his surroundings.

This narrative was intended to be part of a novel. However, Kafka abandoned the project after multiple attempts.

About the Author:

Franz Kafka (born on July 3, 1883 in Prague, Austro-Hungarian Empire; died on June 3, 1924 in Klosterneuburg-Kierling, Austria; sometimes also known as Frantisek Kafka in Czech) was a German-speaking author. His main body of work is comprised of numerous narratives along with three fragments of novels (The Trial, The Castle and The Man Who Disappeared). The majority of Kafka's work was published posthumously and against his last will and testament by Max Brod, a close friend and confidant, whom Kafka had named as executor. Kafka's work undisputedly belongs to the canon of world literature.
