Franz Kafka

Contemplation (German Bohemica)


Contemplation was Kafka's first published book (1913). It is composed of eighteen short "prose poems," the book as a whole displays the full range of Kafka's compact metaphorical style. In this new translation, Blahut has been faithful to the original German while rendering it in a fresh, contemporary English. This edition is complemented by eighteen black & white illustrations, attesting to the lasting inspiration of Kafka's prose.
