THE TRIAL

Perhaps this is intended as a satire on the present situation in Nazi Germany, with its meaningless arrests and perverted processes of justice. That alone would seem to give meaning to a fantastic story of a man arrested for no known reason, and spending the balance of his life fighting the unknown, but with all the sensations of hope and despair that an actual charge and its unravelling would bring. Kafka has an enviable position in modern European literature. This book will scarcely indicate the whys and wherefores to the American reading public.
