Product Description


'Someone must have laid false information against Josef K., for he was arrested one morning without having done anything wrong.'

From the first sentence onwards, Josef K. is on trial for his very existence. This chilling novel, more than any other, is infinitely perceptive about the nature of terror; our greatest being that of the Last Judgement which Kafka called 'a court in standing session'.

'The Trial exhibits the classical model of the terror state. It prefigures the furtive sadism, the hysteria which totalitarianism insinuates into private and sexual life ... the actual form of that disaster of Western humanism which Nietzsche and Kierkegaard had seen like an uncertain blackness on the horizon.'
- George Steiner
