Contemplation cover

Contemplation, Kafka's first published book (1913), was one of the few to appear in his lifetime. 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, Kevin Blahut has been faithful to the original German while rendering it in a fresh, contemporary English. This edition is complimented by eighteen illustrations by Fedele Spadafora, attesting to the lasting inspiration of Kafka's prose.
