With an Introduction by Mark Anderson. Seventy-five years after Kafka's request for The Stoker, The Metamorphosis, and The Judgment to be published together in a book called The Sons, his wish has come true. These three classic stories of filial revolt as well as his own poignant "Letter to His Father," another "son story" located between fiction and autobiography, comprise this devastating indictment of the modern family, and what some consider to be Kafka's most concentrated literary achievement as well as the story of his own domestic life. Grouped together under this new title and in newly revised translations, these texts take on a fresh, compelling meaning.
Note on the translations:
The Judgment, The Stoker, and The Metamorphosis translated by Willa and Edwin Muir.
Letter to His Father translated by Ernst Kaiser and Eithne Wilkins.
All translations revised and updated by Arthur S. Wensinger.
