bookshelves: kafka, short-stories, classics

Various short stories (generally not as good as in Metamorphosis) and a short play. Several have legal/bureaucratic themes and others continue his habit of first-person musings, imagining himself as another creature (Report of a Dog and The Burrow). The Burrow is a very touching insight into the concept of home as a castle, fear of intrusion and persecution etc - very easy to add a Jewish spin to the interpretation.

See my Kafka-related bookshelf for other works by and about Kafka (http://www.goodreads.com/review/list/...).
