The Trial (Paperback)
Email or call for price.
The Trial, German Der Prozess, novel by visionary German-language writer Franz Kafka, originally published posthumously in 1925. One of Kafka's major works, and perhaps his most pessimistic, this surreal story of a young man who finds himself caught up in the mindless bureaucracy of the law has become synonymous with the anxieties and sense of alienation of the modern age and with an ordinary person's struggle against an unreasoning and unreasonable authority. It is often considered to be an imaginative anticipation of totalitarianism.
