Most widely held works by Stanley Corngold
Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka( Book )

36 editions published between 1972 and 2013 in English and held by 1,978 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A novel about a man who finds himself transformed into a huge insect, and the effects of this change upon his life. This is a fantastic horror story about a hapless man who is turned into an insect. When Gregor Samsa woke up one morning from unsettling dreams, he found himself changed in his bed into a monstrous vermin. With this startling, bizarre, yet surprisingly funny first sentence, Kafka begins his masterpiece, The Metamorphosis. It is the story of a young man who, transformed overnight into a giant beetlelike insect, becomes an object of disgrace to his family, an outsider in his own home, a quintessentially alienated man. A harrowing -- though absurdly comic -- meditation on human feelings of inadequacy, guilt, and isolation, The Metamorphosis has taken its place as one of the most widely read and influential works of twentieth-century fiction
Lambent traces : Franz Kafka by Stanley Corngold( )

20 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,933 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Lambent Traces: Franz Kafka, the American critic and translator of Franz Kafka traces the implications of Kafka's literary breakthrough. Kafka's first concern was not his responsibility to his culture but to his fate as literature, which he pursued by exploring "the limits of the human." At the same time, he kept his transcendental longings sober by noting - with incomparable irony - their virtual impossibility."

Franz Kafka : the necessity of form by Stanley Corngold( Book )

15 editions published between 1988 and 2018 in English and held by 1,057 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Stanley Corngold's view, the themes and strategies of Kafka's fiction are generated by a tension between his concern for writing and his growing sense of its arbitrary character. Analyzing Kafka's work in light of ""the necessity of form, "" which is also a merely formal necessity, Corngold uncovers the fundamental paradox of Kafka's art and life

Franz Kafka : the office writings by Franz Kafka( Book )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: Franz Kafka: The Office Writings brings together for the first time in English Kafka's most interesting professional writings, composed during his years as a high-ranking lawyer with the largest Workmen's Accident Insurance Institute in the Czech Lands of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Franz Kafka (1883-1924) is commonly recognized as the greatest German prose writer of the twentieth century. It is less well known that he had an established legal career. Kafka's briefs reveal him to be a canny bureaucrat, sharp litigator, and innovative thinker on the social, political, and legal issues of his time. His official preoccupations inspired many of the themes and strategies of the novels and stories he wrote at night. These documents include articles on workmen's compensation and workplace safety; appeals for the founding of a psychiatric hospital for shell-shocked veterans; and letters arguing relentlessly for a salary adequate to his merit. In adjudicating disputes, promoting legislative programs, and investigating workplace sites, Kafka's writings teem with details about the bureaucracy and technology of his day, such as spa elevators in Marienbad, the challenge of the automobile, and the perils of excavating in quarries while drunk. Beautifully translated, with valuable commentary by two of the world's leading Kafka scholars and one of America's most eminent civil rights lawyers, the documents cast rich light on the man and the writer, and offer new insights to lovers of Kafka's novels and stories
Kafka for the twenty-first century by Stanley Corngold( Book )

13 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and German and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Franz Kafka's literary career began in the first decade of the twentieth century and produced some of the most fascinating and influential works in all of modern European literature. Now, a hundred years later, the concerns of a new century call for a look at the challenges facing Kafka scholarship in the decades ahead: What more can we hope to learn about the context in which Kafka wrote? How does understanding that context affect how we read his stories? What are the consequences of new critical editions that offer unprecedented access to Kafka's works in manuscript form? How does our view of Kafka change the priorities and fashions of literary scholarship? What elements in Kafka's fiction will find resonance in the historical context of a new millennium? How do we compose a coherent account of a personality with so many contradictory aspects? All these questions and more are addressed by the essays in this volume, written by a group of leading international Kafka scholars. Contributors: Peter Beicken, Iris Bruce, Jacob Burnett, Uta Degner, Doreen Densky, Katja Garloff, Rolf Goebel, Mark Harman, Robert Lemon, Roland Reuß, Ritchie Robertson, Walter Sokel, John Zilcosky, Saskia Ziolkowski. Stanley Corngold is Professor Emeritus of German and Comparative Literature at Princeton University. Ruth V. Gross is Professor of German and Head of the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures at North Carolina State University."
The sufferings of young Werther by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe( Book )

Complex pleasure : forms of feeling in German literature by Stanley Corngold( Book )

10 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Complex Pleasure deals with questions of literary feeling in eight major German writers - Lessing, Kant, Holderlin, Nietzsche, Musil, Kafka, Trakl, and Benjamin. On the basis of close readings of these authors, Stanley Corngold makes vivid the following ideas: that where there is literature there is complex pleasure; that this pleasure is complex because it involves the impression of a disclosure; that this thought is foremost in the minds of a number of canonical writers; that important literary works in the German tradition - fiction, poetry, critique - can be illuminated through their treatment of literary feeling and, finally, that the conceptual terms for these forms of feeling continually vary

The faith of a heretic by Walter Kaufmann( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Originally published in 1959, The Faith of a Heretic is the most personal statement of the beliefs of Nietzsche biographer and translator Walter Kaufmann. A first-rate philosopher in his own right, Kaufmann here provides the fullest account of his views on religion. Although he considered himself a heretic, he was not immune to the wellsprings and impulses from which religion originates, declaring it among the most vital and radical expressions of the human mind. Beginning with an autobiographical prologue that traces his evolution from religious believer to "heretic," the book touches on theology, organized religion, morality, suffering, and death--all examined from the perspective of a "quest for honesty." Kaufmann also subjects philosophy's faith in truth, reason, and absolute morality to the same heretical treatment. The resulting exploration of the faiths of a nonbeliever in a secular age is as fresh and challenging as when it was first published"--Page 4 of cover
Der Erste Weltkrieg auf dem deutsch-europäischen Literaturfeld by Bernd Neumann( Book )

3 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in German and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vorwiegend die Literatur in den Blick nehmend, die im zeitlichen Kern- wie Nahbereich des Weltkrieges entstand, verfolgt dieser Band eine interkulturelle Zielsetzung. So wie der Große Krieg nicht zuletzt ein europäisches Phänomen war, verbindet sich mit der Untersuchung des deutschen Kulturkreises ein Herangehen, das den thematischen Fokus weitet und die nationalen Grenzen überwindet. Innerhalb der einzelnen Beiträge, in denen die deutschsprachige Literatur einen festen Bezugspunkt bildet, wird dem Aspekt der Interkulturalität in differierender Ausprägung entsprochen. Dadurch ergibt sich ein Gesamtbild, mit dem sich, neben dem Leitmotiv der Angst, die Absicht der politischen Instrumentalisierung zeigt, als Begeisterung, die auch nicht in der Zwischenkriegszeit verstummte
