Franz Kafka, Kevin Blahut, Fedele Spadafora

Translated from the German by Kevin Blahut, illustrated by Fedele Spadafora

Kafka’s first published book (1913), Contemplation is composed of eighteen “prose poems,” displaying 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 18 pen-and-ink drawings.
