Detroit City Limits | What's Going on in Detroit

Knowledge is Power

Imagine going about an average day, minding your own business, when suddenly you are ambushed by police and arrested. On what charge, you ask? The police don’t say. Nor will you ever find out. As crazy as this sounds, it is the exact situation Joseph K. needs to endure in Franz Kafka’s riveting novel The Trial. K. (an unrevealed name parallel to his unrevealed charge) is forced to fight against an unknown accusation for the rest of his life in an undoubtedly flawed legal system as he learns more about the world he lives in and the role he plays in it. Published posthumously in 1925 (one year after Kafka’s death), the novel can be frustrating due to the fact that it is technically unfinished, however it does have a concluding chapter, so while certain chapters are incomplete the storyline itself is all tied together in the end. Even though it’s not completed, The Trial is a phenomenal work that is most definitely deserving of high praise. Captivating, unbelievable, and well-written, The Trial is highly recommended if you’re in search of an amazing novel.
