Josephine the Singer, or the Mouse Folk
This book is an allegorical tale about “mouse people.” Josephine is a rarity among the mouse people, for she has the ability to sing beautifully, helping all the mouse people continue with their hardworking lives. When Josephine goes missing, everyone misses her singing, including the mice who did not believe she could sing. This allegory by German-language author Franz Kafka explores the relationship between artists and society. The book was translated by Willa and Edwin Muir in 1948 and contains an illustration of Josephine by Elizabeth Bertin.
