The Metamorphosis is a serious of stories that follow the life of Gregor Samsa, a traveling salesman. The story begins when one morning Gregor awakes to find himself transformed into a large insect like creature. His family and colleges have a growing concern at his absence from work but upon checking on him are abhorred by his grotesque appearance. The stories then follow Gregor s thought process, since the family can no longer understand his language. Gregor realizes what a burden he is to the family, and how they are constantly repelled at his new appearance. Without ever giving a reason for his transformation, Kafka tells an intriguing tale of one man's thoughts throughout a trying time."

display_description The most famous of Franz Kafka's works, The Metamorphosis describes a traveling salesman, Gregor Samsa, who wakes up to find himself transformed into a giant insect. This change in his condition does not surprise or shock his family, rather, they look on it as an impending burden. Subtexts include how society's perceptions of differences, the loneliness of isolation, and the absurdity of the human condition. The Metamorphosis is often cited as one of the seminal works of fiction of the 20th century and is widely studied in colleges and universities across the western world. Translated by Ian Johnston.
