Kafka: A Collection of Critical Essays. Twentieth Century Views Series.
Gray, Ronald, Ed.
One of a series of works aimed at presenting contemporary critical opinion on major authors, this collection includes essays by Ronald Gray, Edwin Muir, Friedrich Beissner, R. O. C. Winkler, Johannes Pfeiffer, Caroline Gordon, Idris Parry, Edmund Wilson, Erich Heller, Austin Warren, Eliseo Vivas, Albert Camus, Martin Buber, and H. S. Reiss--all dealing with the biography and literary work of Franz Kafka. Designed for use by both literary critics and secondary and college teachers of English, this work would also be of value to undergraduate and graduate students of literature. Topics covered include Kafka the artist, Kafka the writer, a dissenting opinion on Kafka, Kafka's distorted mask, and a survey of recent criticism on Kafka. A chronology of important dates of Kafka's life and a brief set of biographical notes on the contributors to this collection complete the volume. (RB)
