Review:

" Of all Kafka's fiction this is the most personal. K. is not of course a mouthpiece for Kafka- he lacks Kafka's grave intelligence and humor- but his inner conflict between a taste for ordinary life and the demands imposed by his quest were in good part shared by Kafka . . . "The Castle" projects a greater strength of will than we have encountered in Kafka's earlier writings- an effort to overcome the muteness of existence." - from the Introduction by Irving Howe

From the Publisher:

'He is the greatest German writer of our time. Such poets as Rilke or such novelists as Thomas Mann are dwarfs or plaster saints in comparison to him' Vladimir Nabokov
