The Metamorphosis, first published in 1915, is the most famous of Kafka's works, along with The Trial and The Castle. The story begins when a traveling salesman, Gregor Samsa, wakes up to find himself transformed into a giant insect. Curiously, his condition does not arouse surprise in his family, who merely despise it as an impending burden. As with all of Kafka's works, The Metamorphosis is open to a wide range of interpretations. Most obvious are themes relating to society's treatment of those who are different, the loneliness of isolation, and the absurdity of the human condition. Newly designed and typeset for easy reading by Boomer Books.

Oeps, dit is een erg lange samenvatting + review geworden.... Op een dag wordt Gregor wakker, en is hij veranderd in een gigantisch insect.Zo'n drastische en lichamelijk onmogelijke verandering is absurd. Ook de reacties van de karakters op deze verandering maken het verhaal des te absurder; Gregor ...

4.0 Society's Burdens
Normally I would try to write my post fairly soon after I have read a particular piece of literature, however in this instance I was meeting up with a book club today so I decided that I would hold off until after I have been to the group. I must say that this group is quite different than the other...

3.0 Review of the Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka
What an odd short novel. If you have never read this before, it is basically about a guy who wakes up as a giant bug. He can't leave his house or communicate with his family. We read his thoughts and he is very optimistic that his family will help him out. Then we see his family repulsed by him in e...
