Pressestimmen'... provides a valuable overview of varied aspects of Kafka's works, including a relevant up-to-date bibliography at the end of each essay.' Poetics Today 'The Cambridge Companion series is renowned for its well-researched and accessible studies, and this is no exception. ... The inclusion of such a wide range of material in this volume makes it an ideal introduction to Kafka's work. The material is presented lucidly, and each contribution takes into account previous reception as well as presenting new readings and interpretations. The volume also benefits from English translations throughout, thus serving an interdisciplinary as well as a Germanist readership.' MLR
