View Full Version : What is your favorite story by Franz Kafka?

I believe i have read all which has been released up to now, fiction, diaries, letters. I used to love Kafka's work (still like it, but i have moved away from his influence).

My favorite story by him probably is At the penal colony. It is one of the most detailed and violent works by him.

His most classical work possibly is the Metamorphosis, one of the few books you can sum up in a sentence and still make an impression on someone who has not read it.

Other, less known tales i like include The Railway at Galda, The Torturer (it is only a few lines long) and Blumfeld: An elderly bachelor.

The Trial

I agree, The Trial is my favourite work of Kafka as well, even though I am sure that I only got a glimpsy of the meaning behind it. I will probably read it again soon.
