Gregorio tenía un buen trabajo, era viajante y llevaba adelante a toda su familia. Una mañana Gregorio amanece con cuerpo de insecto, a consecuencia de esto se queda en su cuarto por miedo a que le vean sus familiares; estos le llamaban desesperadamente para que fuera a trabajar. Gregorio intenta ponerse en pie y acomodarse a su nuevo cuerpo, que todavía no domina. Por su retraso al trabajo, llega el procurador a su casa para llevárselo. Tras proponerse abrir la puerta y conseguirlo, causa el asombro del procurador y de su familia. El procurador se marcha sin pensárselo, su madre cae desmayada, y Gregorio sigue al procurador hasta la escalera para que no se marchara. El padre, enfadado, obliga a Gregorio a meterse en su cuarto dando patadas en el suelo, y golpes con el bastón y el periódico.Durante el otoño de 1912, en Praga, escribió Franz Kafka (1883-1924) La metamorfosis. En pocos libros de Kafka queda tan explícito y tan nítido su mundo como en La metamorfosis, en la que el protagonista, convertido en bestia, sumido en la más absoluta incomunicación, se ve reducido cruelmente a la nada y arrastrado inexorablemente a la muerte. Otros escritos de Kafka desarrollan rigurosas variaciones paralelas, desmenuzan inexorables pesadillas, asignan obsesiones enigmáticas a personajes desorientados y vencidos, pero tal vez sea La metamorfosis la narración que mejor expresa al «hombre primordial kafkiano». De ahí que merezca la calificación unánime de obra perfecta y obra maestra, un texto decididamente superior en el panorama de la literatura universal del siglo XX.Incluye el relato El silencio de las sirenas.

    " siempre que lo leo encuentro a Gregorio distinto con transpformaciones y escenarios diferentes y hoy me causo mucha nostalia :( "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Clint Priest | 2/20/2014

    " Not a huge fan of Kafka and existentialists writing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nuha_hash | 2/20/2014

    " wow ! Kafka made my night miserable.. it's all about redefining the existence of human being rather than adoring a tedious reality. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Terry Irving | 1/30/2014

    " It's like medicine. Just read it because you need to to be an educated person but don't expect to like it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Manas Gupta | 1/27/2014

    " This was the first time I entered one of the strange worlds of Kafka and I must admit that I was flattered and impressed by the idea and the story. I could not have possibly thought anything as strange as this story. Kafka makes you feel extremely helpless and sad when he describes Gregor Samsa's ordeal. The only thing that I disliked was the end. If I could change it, I would have definitely done it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Grace | 1/24/2014

    " Depressing is the word that best describes this novel, for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jodi | 1/4/2014

    " Appreciated the form and writing style. Clever way to raise awareness of the alienation that difference can cause. No doubt, many people can relate to this on some level. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Timo | 1/4/2014

    " Ik heb hardop gelachen in de bus. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brooke | 11/14/2013

    " I appreciated the writing style, but the story was just a bit too out there for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jon Chater | 11/12/2013

    " Originally read this in preparation for the play. Wow. Very impressed. Confused. Despairing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Derek | 11/10/2013

    " Poor guy turns into a bug. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kornelija | 10/24/2013

    " It was quite shocking, but very interesting too. You were made to use your imagination a lot and there was left a lot of space for thinking if you know what I mean:) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andresa Maurício | 10/23/2013

    " Li ouvindo The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, sem mais. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betterservicesconsulting | 8/7/2013

    " Dark and appealing story with a meaninful background for our lives. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chris D'souza | 8/9/2012

    " Didn't hold my attention enough, so gave up ( "

    " Creepy and fantastic and perfect "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynne | 4/15/2012

    " Transformation into a beetle....physical manifestation of human isolation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie Laessig | 12/2/2011

    " Probably should read it again and see if thirty years has changed my opinion of it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 9/11/2011

    " Wonderfully surreal, poetic work that befriended my attention span and the world of theatre, manifesting in some tremendous visual arts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abrar Al.fozan | 6/19/2011

    " It was very disturbing and extremely sad. I just couldn't wrap my head around Gregor's transformation. It's too weird and unexplained. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tiffany | 5/21/2011

    " The title story is great, of course, but the reason I give this collection a 5 instead of a 4 was because of "A Hunger Artist". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 5/17/2011

    " only read the metamorphosis.. found it very interesting, although somewhat strange
    "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Goleta | 4/23/2011

    " i only read metamorphosis. Had to read it for school. Twice! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 4/21/2011

    " I don't get it. These stories are completely bizarre. The opening lines really drag you in, but then the stories have no real build up or resolution. If I were the judge, I would not give these stories the status of classics. That's really all I have to say about this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darrell | 4/20/2011

    " One of the classics. Well worth a read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Yare | 4/15/2011

    " it was an interesting book, with different stories, one of my favorites is the metamorphosis but was a little sad at the end.. but most dificult was the way Kafka express his ideas, or the situation on the stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cooper | 4/11/2011

    " Contains the texts that Kafka published (or prepared for publication?) during his life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 4/11/2011

    " In The Penal Colony ... now there's a mental image that will stay with me, unfortunately! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zakiya | 4/6/2011

    " I read this book in college as part of the Fiction Writing curriculum. We actually had to write a parody of The Metamorphosis. It's good reading though. I enjoyed his work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dodokins | 3/4/2011

    " What can I say? There are people crazier than I. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Reznik | 2/22/2011

    " The Penal Colony was a great short story "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sonia | 2/3/2011

    " One of the most disgusting and wonderful books Kafka has written. I was grossed out by the description of the cockroach, no doubt. Loved the story and the story telling. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kate | 1/21/2011

    " Kafka is one of those iconic writers that I really want to like but just don't. I love the premises of his stories, but I find them a chore to actually read. His language is overly formal and rather obfuscatory to me, which is perhaps intentional on his part, but in reality really puts me off. "

About the Author
Author Franz Kafka

Franz Kafka (1883–1924), one of the major fiction writers of the twentieth century, was born to a middle-class German-speaking Jewish family in Prague. His unique body of writing, much of which is incomplete and was mainly published posthumously, is considered by some people to be among the most influential in Western literature, inspiring such writers as Albert Camus, Rex Warner, and Samuel Beckett.
