The Great Wall of China : and Other Short Works Paperback

Edited by Malcom Pasley


Drawing directly on original manuscripts, this collection comprises the major short stories published after Kafka's death.

It includes The Great Wall of China, Blumfeld, An Elderly Bachelor, Investigations of a Dog and his great sequences of aphorisms, with fables and parables on subjects ranging from the legend of Prometheus to the Tower of Babel.

Allegorical, disturbing and possessing a dream-like clarity, these writings are quintessential Kafka.
