The Trial : new translation by Isabel Tucker, Hardback Book

The Trial : new translation by Isabel Tucker Hardback

Part of the Arcturus Silhouette Classics series



'In the end, out of nothing at all, an enormous fabric of guilt will be conjured up.' One morning Josef K. is arrested for a crime he did not commit. In fact, he is never even told the nature of the offense.

His life is thrown into turmoil as he becomes enmeshed in a struggle to prove his innocence.

As the confounding case unfolds, K. is ultimately powerless - battling against a remote and uncaring bureaucracy. This striking hardback edition features a new translation by Isabel Tucker.

Due to its posthumous publication, The Trial 's original text is largely unedited and Tucker emends certain details while retaining the enigmatic and surreal style which marks Kafka's brilliance. Filled with psychological tension and disconcerting parallels with the modern world, The Trial is a dystopian masterpiece by one of the greatest writers in the German-language. ABOUT THE SERIES: Arcturus Silhouette Classics are high-quality hardback editions with contemporary cover-designs.

Presented with dust jackets and beautiful colour end-papers, the titles in this series make wonderful gifts or collectibles for any classic literature lover.
