10 years ago, when I used to follow literary criticism and book
reviews more closely, I knew that the standard (perhaps only?)
translations of Kafka's work were those done by Willa and Edwin Muir.

However, I have a feeling that, since then, new and perhaps better
translations have been released.  Is this true?

If so, please provide me a link to one or more essays or book reviews
that at least touch on how these new translations stack up against the
traditional Willa & Edwin Muir versions.  Thanks!
There is no answer at this time.

This is very helpful.  Are there any recent translations of his short stories?
