The trial by Franz Kafka( Book )

107 editions published between 1937 and 2010 in English and German and held by 3,150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A symbolistic study of the tyranny of modern social systems. Written in 1914, The Trial is one of the most important novels of the twentieth century: the terrifying tale of Josef K., a respectable bank officer who is suddenly and inexplicably arrested and must defend himself against a charge about which he can get no information. Whether read as an existential tale, a parable, or a prophecy of the excesses of modern bureaucracy wedded to the madness of totalitarianism, Kafka's nightmare has resonated with chilling truth for generations of readers
