Popis

"Kafkaesque is a stout, enchanting exploration of Kafka's work. Illuminating his curious character with such incomparable art galvanises the comic's content, making each individual story land with dramatic flair..." Starburst Magazine Long fascinated with the work of Franz Kafka, Peter Kuper began illustrating his stories in 1988. Initially drawn to the master's dark humour, Kuper adapted the stories over the years to plumb their deeper truths. Working from new translations of the classic texts, Kuper has reimagined these iconic stories for the twenty-first century, using setting and perspective to comment on contemporary issues. Long-time lovers of Kafka will appreciate Kuper's innovative interpretations, while Kafka novices will discover a haunting introduction to some of the great writer's most beguiling stories. Kafkaesque stands somewhere between adaptation and wholly original creation, going beyond a simple illustration of Kafka's words to become a stunning work of art. Review "It's not only a startlingly robust testament to the power of Kafka's literary prowess, but also a splendid showcase for Kuper's manic artwork." --Starburst Magazine"...fans of enigmatic pessimism can allow themselves a shudder of delight." --Strong Words Magazine About the Author Peter Kuper is a visiting professor at Harvard University. He frequently contributes cartoons to The New Yorker and is the illustrator of Mad magazine's "Spy vs. Spy." His previous graphic novel, Ruins, won an Eisner Award. He lives in New York.

Další popis

Award-winning graphic novelist Peter Kuper presents a mesmerizing interpretation of fourteen iconic Kafka short stories. Long fascinated with the work of Franz Kafka, Peter Kuper began illustrating his stories in 1988. Initially drawn to the master´s dark humor, Kuper adapted the stories over the years to plumb their deeper truths. Kuper´s style deliberately evokes Lynd Ward and Frans Masereel, contemporaries of Kafka whose wordless novels captured much of the same claustrophobia and mania as Kafka´s tales. Working from new translations of the classic texts, Kuper has reimagined these iconic stories for the twenty-first century, using setting and perspective to comment on contemporary issues like civil rights and homelessness. Longtime lovers of Kafka will appreciate Kuper´s innovative interpretations, while Kafka novices will discover a haunting introduction to some of the great writer´s most beguiling stories, including "A Hunger Artist," "In The Penal Colony," and "The Burrow." Kafkaesque stands somewhere between adaptation and wholly original creation, going beyond a simple illustration of Kafka´s words to become a stunning work of art.
