Kafka's Universal Theme: Emrich, Wilhelm: Franz Kafka. A Critical Study of His Writings. Translated by Sheema Zeben Buehne. New York: Frederick Ungar Publishing Co., 1968, VIII + 561 pp.

Review by:
Harry Slochower

Emrich's study is a massive and detailed analysis of the supra-literary implications of Kafka's work. It draws on firsthand Kafka sources and the vast critical comment in books and journals. The book appeared in German in 1958, and is now offered in a very readable translation by Professor Sheema Zeben Buehne.

Emrich is a very learned man, and his book, with its scholarly and wide-ranging Notes has an encyclopedic character.
