A.R.Mackenzie says Monday, February 12, 2007 that Mr Irving's Vienna trial and imprisonment reminds him of Kafka
I RECENTLY read Franz Kafka's 1914 novel 'The Trial' and see from your own experience that things haven't changed much in the remains of the decadent Austro-Hungarian empire.
There were 2 movies made entitled The Trial, one by Orson Welles that I haven't seen , the other with Kyle Maclachlan, Jason Robarts and Anthony Hopkins which sticks remarkably close to the text.
There have been 10,000 books or long articles published on Kafka, largely by guess-who, but not entirely. The first English translation of his novels was by neighbours of mine in St Andrew, Edwin Muir and his wife Willa. Their son Gavin was in my class at school.
