Franz Kafka
Franz Kafka was born in Prague in 1883 and died in Kierling, near Vienna, in 1924. His writings are characterized by an extreme sensitivity manifested in absurdity, alienation, and gallows humor, and these two particular collections of short pieces, A Country Doctor (1919) and A Hunger Artist (1924), represent later works in the corpus. Perhaps best known in North America for his short story “The Metamorphosis,” Kafka has continued to exert a profound influence on world literature.
