Download e-book for kindle: A Hunger Artist & Other Stories; Poems and Songs of Love by Thor Polson

By Thor Polson

Franz Kafka's writings are characterised by means of an severe sensitivity manifested in absurdity, alienation, and gallows humor. those specific collections of brief items, a rustic health professional (1919) and A starvation Artist (1924), newly translated by way of Thor Polson, characterize later works within the corpus. Poems and Songs of affection is a translation of the gathering Piyyutim ve-Shirei Yedidot via Georg Mordechai Langer. released in Prague in 1929, it comprises an elegy to Langer's good friend and mentor Franz Kafka, and different overtly homo-romantic poems. This collaborative translation by means of Elana and Menachem Wolff brings the interesting paintings of Langer--poems in addition to an essay on Kafka--to the English-reading public for the 1st time, and sheds gentle on a hitherto unexamined relationship.
