Kafka: The Decisive Years

 
9780151007523: Kafka: The Decisive Years

This is the first of a three-volume, definitive biography of Kafka who, eighty years after his death in 1924, remains one of the most intriguing figures in the history of world literature. Now, after a decade's research, Stach recreates the atmosphere in which Kafka lived and worked from 1910 to 1915. These are the years of Kafka's fascination with early forms of Zionism, his on/off engagement, the outbreak of World War I, and - above all - the composition of his seminal works "The Metamorphosis", "Amerika", The Judgement, and "The Trial".

Book Description Harcourt, 2005. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: This is the first of a three-volume, definitive biography of Franz Kafka. Eighty years after his death in 1924, Kafka remains one of the most intriguing figures in the history of world literature. Now, after more than a decade of research, working with over four thousand pages of journal entries, letters, and literary fragments, Reiner Stach re-creates the atmosphere in which Kafka lived and worked from 1910 to 1915. These are the years of Kafka's fascination with early forms of Zionism despite his longing to be assimilated into the minority German culture in Prague; of his off-again, on-again engagement to Felice Bauer; of the outbreak of World War I; and above all of the composition of his seminal works-The Metamorphosis, Amerika, The Judgment, and The Trial. Kafka:The Decisive Years-at once an extraordinary portrait of the writer and an original contribution to the art of literary biography. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0151007527
