The Complete Novels by Franz Kafka, translated by Edwin Muir, is a collection of all the novella-length works written by the influential early 20th-century author Franz Kafka. Kafka is best known for his short stories, particularly The Metamorphosis, but his novels are also considered significant works of modernist literature.

The collection includes:

  • The Trial
    - This unfinished novel follows Josef K., a bank employee who is inexplicably arrested and prosecuted by a shadowy authority figure. The Trial explores themes of alienation, bureaucracy, and the absurdity of existence.
  • The Castle
    - Another unfinished novel, The Castle tells the story of K., a land surveyor who arrives in a mysterious village and attempts to gain permission from the castle authorities to live and work there. The Castle explores themes of power, isolation, and the search for meaning.
  • Amerika
    - Also known as The Man Who Disappeared, Amerika is an unfinished novel about Karl Rossmann, a young man who is sent to America after being seduced by a maid. The novel is a picaresque coming-of-age story that explores themes of immigration, identity, and the American Dream.
