As previously reported, Google is celebrating the birthday of acclaimed writer Franz Kafka. The doodle went live yesterday on the other side of the world, when it became July 3rd, and now it's up here in our neck of the woods.
The doodle specifically honors “Die Verwandlung,” or “The Metamorphosis," one of Kafka's most well-known and influential stories, which was first published in 1915. Our own Josh Wolford discusses The Metamorphosis and Kafka's life, death and legacy more here.
Other well-known works include: “Der Process” (The Trial), and “Das Schloss” (The Castle).
