  • Stories of Franz Kafka


    Stories of Franz Kafka is a collection of short stories written by Franz Kafka. Kafka's grotesque, gruesome and often darkly macabre stories depict a world with elements of fantasy and the absurd that have been seamlessly incorporated into a reality of satirized bureaucracy, "justice" and isolation of modern urban society. In his stylistically-modernist stories, Kafka presents themes of human alienation, power and oppression, family power dynamics, repression, horror and brutality. Some of his most famous stories include "The Metamorphosis," "In the Penal Colony" and "A Hunger Artist."
