HW due 1/6: The Trial

1. The Trial–Be sure to have read up to p. 136 for tomorrow (Stop at “Disappointed, K. took the letter and stuck…”). Be prepared to discuss the following:

The second paragraph of this chapter describing K.’s conversations with his lawyer lasts for ten full pages (pp. 110-122) and is summed up by the words “In such and similar speeches the lawyer was inexhaustible.” What is the effect on K. and the reader of this interminable paragraph? Does K.’s trial seem endless? How do K.’s worries about his trial affect his work at the bank?

2. Term Final–First draft now due Jan. 19th!
