      “The Trial,” it is a novel written by Franz Kafka. Published in 1925, it tells the story of a man named Josef K. who is arrested and put on trial for an unspecified crime. The novel explores themes of guilt, justice, and the absurdity of bureaucracy.

      In the book, Josef K. finds himself caught in a bewildering and irrational legal system. He struggles to navigate through a complex web of procedures, encounters enigmatic characters, and is unable to fully comprehend the charges against him. As the trial progresses, Josef K.’s frustration and anxiety increase, ultimately leading to a poignant and ambiguous conclusion.


      From WikipediaThe Trial is a novel written by Franz Kafka in 1914 and 1915 and published posthumously on 26 April 1925. One of his best known works, it tells the story of Josef K., a man arrested and prosecuted by a remote, inaccessible authority, with the nature of his crime revealed neither to him nor to the reader. Heavily influenced by Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment and The Brothers Karamazov, Kafka even went so far as to call Dostoevsky a blood relative. Like Kafka’s two other novels, The Castle and Amerika, The Trial was never completed, although it does include a chapter which appears to bring the story to an intentionally abrupt ending.

      After Kafka’s death in 1924 his friend and literary executor Max Brod edited the text for publication by Verlag Die Schmiede. The original manuscript is held at the Museum of Modern Literature, Marbach am Neckar, Germany. The first English-language translation, by Willa and Edwin Muir, was published in 1937. In 1999, the book was listed in Le Monde’s 100 Books of the Century and as No. 2 of the Best German Novels of the Twentieth Century.
