The Trial is a novel written by Franz Kafka and published posthumously in 1925 by Max Brod, based on Kafka's unfinished text.

Josef K. is a bank clerk with a thriving career who is suddenly arrested one morning for no reason. As a result, he will have to legally defend himself against something that he really does not know what it is and how to argue it. The only thing he finds is time and time again a climate of inaccessibility to justice and the law.

Josef K. will suffer a suffocating judicial procedure that little by little completely addresses his entire life; he is interrogated in depressing and dirty rooms of decadent courts, installed in attics on the outskirts of the city; he witnesses surreal situations related to the bureaucrats around him and meets characters who seem to want to help him but are really just as powerless as he is.

This digital edition of the book The Trial is based on David Wyllie's translation.

"Someone must have been telling lies about Josef K., he knew he had done nothing wrong but, one morning, he was arrested. Every day at eight in the morning he was brought his breakfast by Mrs. Grubach's cook-Mrs. Grubach was his landlady-but today she didn't come."
