Mark Harman

MLA-Roth Award, 2000

Harman’s new translation of The Castle, by Franz Kafka, updates the 1930 Edwin Muir version and, in the words of the MLA citation, ensures “that its influence … will in the next century be as powerful as it has in this.” At the time, Harman was at Elizabethtown College in Pennsylvania.
