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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “One of the seminal writers of the twentieth century…You don’t know what’s going to happen and you can’t put it down.”

    Jewish Book World

  • “In The Metamorphosis Kafka reached the height of his mastery: he wrote something which he could never surpass, because there is nothing which The Metamorphosis could be surpassed by—one of the few great, perfect poetic works of this century.”

    Elias Canetti, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1981

  • “You will mark Kafka’s style. Its clarity, its precise and formal intonation in such striking contrast to the nightmare matter of his tale. No poetical metaphors ornament his stark black-and-white story. The limpidity of his style stresses the dark richness of his fantasy. Contrast and unity, style and matter, manner and plot are most perfectly integrated.”

    Vladimir Nabokov
