Hello everybody. I have a question . I found in a Library (and scanned it) the first spanish translation of "The metamorphosis" by Franz Kafka. It was published in Revista de Ocidente (a cultural magazine directed by Ortega y Gasset) in 1925. The translator is unknown and is one of the great mysteries in the translations of that author, but in the magazine the text is unsigned and the archives of that magazine in Madrid were burnt during the civil war so we won´t never know who was the original translator . Should i wait until to 2021 or 2022 to read it? Or am I wrong?

It's safe for you now in Argentina, and it will be safe for Librivox in 2021.

(By safe, I mean in the public domain)
