, 'In the Penal Colony', 'A Hunger Artist' to pieces of writings which were compiled after Kafka's death by his close author friend Max Brod.
All of Kafka's published works, except some letters were written in German. What little was published during his lifetime attracted scant public attention. He finished none of his full-length novels and burned around 90 percent of his work.
These works have been welcomed by Iranian readership. As they have influenced a vast range of writers, critics, artists, and philosophers during the 20th and 21st centuries.
The first edition of ‘Franz Kafka, Collected Stories’ translated into Persian by the late Amir Jalal al-Din A'alam (1941-2017) was published in 1999 in 547 pages.
