The clearinghouse for Kafka information on the web. Biography, articles, essays, some works
(mostly in German, with translations into English, Italian, Russian, and a few others), and nearly anything else
you might possibly need.
Many pictures of Kafka and his family. Very image-heavy, so the page may be slow to load on a dial-up connection.
"The Great Wall of China," "The Metamorphosis," "In the Penal Colony," and many others. These new translations
come to us courtesy of Ian Johnston, from Malaspina University, Nanaimo, British Columbia.
One of the longest-lived sites devoted to the study of Kafka. In English and Dutch.
Includes a link to the site author's master's thesis on Kafka.
Link is to an HTML abstract of the article, which can be downloaded in .PDF format.
(includes a discussion board)
A bit of backstory on how Kafka's unpublished work was preserved from posthumous destruction.
Cliffs Notes by any other name would smell as sweet to one looking for help on a paper. They have
free information and analysis for all aspects of "The Hunger Artist," "Amerika," and "The Metamorphosis".
Study guides on "The Metamorphosis," "The Castle," and "The Trial". A one-year membership (required
to access study guide details) costs $6.99.
Not much solid material, but the booklist has good summaries of his work and suggestions on which
are the most accessible for beginners.
The original publisher of Kafka's work.
A list of of Kafka critics, their relevant works, and brief summaries of the critics' positions.
Jeremy Irons + Stephen Soderbergh = Box-office gold! Or not.
Monterey Media actually sent me a review copy of this after I launched the first version of this site.
I seem to remember it was pretty decent, though a bit dry. But it does star Christopher Plummer (AKA Captain von Trapp from
"The Sound of Music") as Vladimir Nabokov, and that made me happy.
Not at all what it sounds like…but morbidly hilarious nonetheless.
