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

7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 623 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

Lambent traces : Franz Kafka by Stanley Corngold( Book )

20 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On the night of September 22, 1912, Franz Kafka wrote his story "The Judgment," which came out of him "like a regular birth." This act of creation struck him as an unmistakable sign of his literary destiny. Thereafter, the search of many of his characters for the Law, for a home, for artistic fulfillment can be understood as a figure for Kafka's own search to reproduce the ecstasy of a single night."
The sufferings of young Werther by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe( Book )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first great "confessional" novel, this is a story of unrequited love, drawing on personal experience. Werther, a sensitive young man, falls in love with Lotte, knowing she is to marry another. Unable to subdue his passion, Werther's infatuation torments him to the point of despair
Complex pleasure : forms of feeling in German literature by Stanley Corngold( Book )

10 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 359 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

Kafka for the twenty-first century by Stanley Corngold( Book )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and German and held by 275 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 v

The faith of a heretic by Walter Kaufmann( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 40 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
