The Trial is considered to be one of the most influential books of the 20th century because of its portrayal of one person battling against modern state judiciary and bureaucracy. A powerful and dark novel that anticipated the rise of the state’s bureaucratic machine. This Modern Library edition contains more than 10,000 words not included in the first American edition. Max Brod, Kafka’s literary executor and closest friend, has restored in an Appendix uncompleted chapters and passages deleted by Kafka, making this the definitive edition of this great work.
