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.
