The Castle

Franz Kafka

Ο Πύργος

A mister K. arrives at a village that is governed by a Castle. He believes he has been hired as a Land Surveyor, a belief that is soon proven to be just a false expectation since the request that brought him there was a mistake of the otherwise ineffable management. Mr K. is a stranger in this new place but tries his best to fit in and understand how this irrational bureaucracy works. He keeps trying despite the constant obstacles, putting in an almost incomprehensible effort. Is he resisting or has he already submitted? No one can answer that.
