The Castle
Knopf, NY, 1949. 2nd edition. Hardcover. Fine/Good. ""Kafka's last novel, 'The Castle' is set in a remote village covered almost permanently in snow and dominated by a castle and its staff of dictatorial, sexually predatory bureaucrats. The novel breaks new ground in exploring the relation between the individual and power, asking why the villagers so readily submit to an authority which may exist only in their collective imagination. 'The Castle' appeared in the same decade as modernist masterpieces by Eliot, Joyce, Woolf, Mann and Proust, and is among the central works of modern literature."" [Pub. Info] Previous owner's name-stamp on dust jacket cover and on fly-leaf inside. Chipping to top and bottom of dust jacket spine. 2ND EDITION, LATER PRINTING.
