9780140172386: The Trial

This play exhibits the classic model of the terror state. It prefigures the furtive sadism, the hysteria which totalitarianism insinuates into private and sexual life, the faceless boredom of the killers.

Review:

"This short novel has passed into far more than classical literary status . . . Countless are those who have not read it but who are familiar with its main outline and situations . . . In more than one hundred languages, the epithet 'kafkaesque' attaches to the constants of inhumanity and absurdity in our times . . . In this diffusion of the kafkaesque into so many recesses of our private and public existence, "The Trial" plays a commanding role."
-from the Introduction by George Steiner
