This pioneering translation by A. L. Lloyd was first published in 1937. A. L. Lloyd was multi-talented: ethnomusicologist, journalist, radio and television broadcaster, and translator.In this his centenary year (2008) Faber Finds is celebrating him in his first and last roles. His major work, "Folk Song in England", is being reissued as are his "Lorca" and "Kafka" translations. As well as both being published in 1937 both were firsts; has anyone else had Spanish and German translations published in the same year? It should also be mentioned that A. L. Lloyd was a lifelong communist. It is a delicious irony therefore that one of the first reviews of the "Kafka" was by Evelyn Waugh in the short-lived "Night and Day"; it was a good one too.Hide synopsis
