I'm looking for some thoughts on this, what is the best translation of Kafka's The Trial?
Hello! I wanted to start a thread about "The Master and Margarita"- anyone read it?
When I first read The Trial I was as bewildered as K. But then I read the opening passages of Discipline and Punish and suddenly it all made sense. The court system present into the C18 described by Foucault closely matched that described by Kafka. In fact I can imagine he found it very amusing to subject his modern man to such absurdities. Stop me if this is old news but it was a revelation to me.
