Joyce Crick - Freud and Kafka in English

11 September 2013


Timothy Mathews speaks with Joyce Crick about her explorations in English of Freud and Kafka. A highlight is the way she hears the word Schuld which is German for guilt. 

Joyce Crick taught German at UCL for many years. 

Since her retirement she has translated a variety of texts, including Freud's The Interpretation of Dreams for Oxford World's Classics, which was awarded the Schlegel-Tieck prize in 2000, Selected Tales by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, and Kafka’s A Hunger Artist and Other Stories, both also for OUP.
