"The Metamorphosis and Other Stories" by Franz Kafka
Here is a collection of Kafka's early works including what is still considered the best translation of his most famous piece, "The Metamorphosis," by Joachim Neugroschel. For those looking to dive deeper into Kafka's world, this book introduces Kafka's central concerns of existential anxiety and alienation with short stories alongside contemplative (but not simple) prose poetry.
"For we are like trees in the snow. They seem to be resting smoothly as if one could push them away with a slight nudge. No, one cannot, for they are firmly attached to the ground. But lo and behold, this too is sheer semblance."
Macmillan Publishing Company 1993. Translated by Joachim Neugroschel.
