JAMES ROLLESTON, PROFESSOR DUKE UNIVERSITY Written in 1914, The Trial is one of the most important novels of the twentieth century: the terrifying tale of Josef K., a respectable bank officer who is suddenly and inexplicably arrested and must defend himself against a charge about which he can get no information. Whether read as an existential tale, a parable, or a prophecy of the excesses of modern bureaucracy wedded to the mad- ness of totalitarianism, Kafka's nightmare has resonated with chilling truth for generations of readers. This new edition is based upon the work of an international team ..... BREON MITCHELL has received the ATA German Literary Prize, among other translation awards. He is a professor of Germanic stud- ies and comparative literature at Indiana University.
