'I cannot make you understand. I cannot make anyone understand what is happening inside me. I cannot even explain it to myself.' Featuring an ordinary man who wakes up to find himself turned into a giant cockroach, Kafka's masterpiece of unease and black humour, Metamorphosis , is brought together here with the best of his short stories. A new series of twenty distinctive, unforgettable Penguin Classics in a beautiful new design and pocket-sized format, with coloured jackets echoing Penguin's original covers.
Brings the small proportion of the author's works such as "Metamorphosis", an exploration of horrific transformation and alienation, "Meditation", a collection of studies, "The Aeroplanes at Brescia", his eyewitness account of an air display in 1909, and others.
In May 2005 Penguin will publish 70 unique titles to celebrate the company's 70th birthday. The titles in the Pocket Penguins series are emblematic of the renowned breadth of quality of the Penguin list and will hark back to Penguin founder Allen Lane's vision of good books for all.
