Franz Kafka

He wrote strange stories filled with feelings of fear and sorrow in the German language.

He came from a Jewish family in Prague and worked in a government office. He was very unhappy in his life and at his work, and did not write very many stories.

One of his most famous works is Metamorphosis (1915) about a man who wakes up and finds that he has changed into a giant bug.
