Publisher's Synopsis

What are Kafka's stories about? Are they dreams? Allegories? Symbols? Things that happen every day? But where and when?

In this remarkable book, Roberto Calasso sets out not to dispel the mystery but to let it be illuminated by its own light. With his unique vision, imagination, and intellectual acumen, Calasso attempts to enter the flow, the tortuous movement, the physiology of the stories to discover what they are meant to signify and to delve into the most basic question: Who is K.?
