Nabokov Makes Editorial Improvements to Kafka’s “The Metamorphosis”


Vladimir Nabokov admired Franz Kafka’s novel­la, “The Meta­mor­pho­sis.” Hence the lec­ture that Nabokov ded­i­cat­ed to the work here. But he also saw some small ways to improve the sto­ry, or at least the Eng­lish trans­la­tion of it. Above, we have some edits that Nabokov penned him­self. And, just as an fyi, you can down­load a free ver­sions of Kafka’s work in our col­lec­tions of Free Audio Books and Free eBooks.
