Book Comments & Discussion (2)

This impressive book seems at first, a literature based on juridical approach with a rich style of Kafka, but goes beyond in fact: we could speculate many perspectives like the coercive State upon an individual (or society), impressions of a perplexed man in the oppressive atmosphere from institutions, psychological aspects during these events etc.

Anyway, this book can be a delightful journey to invite us for thinking about many aspects of modern life style (and/or current), and the complicated formality (and relations) of social layer...

Enjoy with this true masterpiece! :-)
the trial was my introduction to Kafka when i was 17 years then i got his entire collection. among European writers like Camus Sartre Kafka's stands so lone and for-lone, committed suicide must be the sheer total alienation from the rest of humanity. the actual living feeling that none knows what you want say or even care enough to know and understand.
how daunting is that.
always been a fan die hard one of Kafka as even in these times one has to really emphasize every feeling for it to be able to help other people understand what one means.. it can be so weird scary too.
then the "Why" starts why are we being punished who is this elusive force that torments the soul till the body goes to pieces. the short story "The Coal Miner impacted me so much that when i went to work i caught one person and made this person hear the entire story well obviously the person never surfaced again ever but i was so happy COULD communicate.

The Trial (original German title: Der Process) is a novel written by Franz Kafka from 1914 to 1915 and published in 1925. One of his best-known works, it tells the story of a man arrested and prosecuted by a remote, inaccessible authority, with the nature of his crime revealed neither to him nor to the reader. Heavily influenced by Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment and The Brothers Karamazov, Kafka even went so far as to call Dostoyevsky a blood relative. Like Kafka's other novels, The Trial was never completed, although it does include a chapter which brings the story to an end. After Kafka's death in 1924 his friend and literary executor Max Brod edited the text for publication by Verlag Die Schmiede. The original manuscript is held at the Museum of Modern Literature, Marbach am Neckar, Germany. The first English language translation, by Willa and Edwin Muir, was published in 1937. In 1999, the book was listed in Le Monde's 100 Books of the Century and as No. 2 of the Best German Novels of the Twentieth Century.
