- As a traveling salesman, Gregor Samsa garnered an impressive income to provide for his financially dependent family consisting of elderly parents and a sister of sixteen. His life consisted of travel, only stopping to drop a paycheck on the dining table to his family 's delight. Within Franz Kafka 's "The Metamorphosis", this breadwinner has his only track of normalcy stripped from his being, woken late to work one morning to possess the body of a beetle. The physical metamorphosis Gregor endures can be seen as an analogy in reference to his mental alteration of a man who 's life is in all aspects estranged, a hopeless existence proven by a beetle for a body....

- Statement of Intent While acknowledging that most narratives written in the third person can be adequately revealing, and that a third perspective is sometimes necessary or even essential to the success of a particular narrative; taking into account the context, themes, and symbols of this work, I strongly believe that a personal diary would be imperative if one was seeking to decode some of the underlying emotions, thoughts, and experiences that can be overshadowed by a lack of a first person point of view in the body of a work....

- In The Metamorphosis Kafka illustrates a grotesque story of a working salesman, Gregor Samsa, waking up one day to discover that his body resembles a bug. Through jarring, almost unrealistic narration, Kafka opens up the readers to a view of Gregor’s futile and disappointing life as a human bug. By captivating the reader with this imaginary world Kafka is able to introduce the idea that Gregor’s bug body resembles his human life. From the use of improbable symbolism Kafka provokes the reader to believe that Gregor turning into a bug is realistic and more authentic compared to his unauthentic life as a human....

- When considering the title ‘Metamorphosis,’ there are two definitions that can be drawn from this which can be used to foreshadow the outcome Gregor’s life in Kafka’s story. The first one is “the process of transformation from an immature form to an adult form in two or more distinct stages” (Oxford Dictionary, 2014). This meaning can be used to foreshadow the financial responsibility that Gregor is given by his family. Here we see his transformation from a young man into an adult who has responsibilities that extend further than him.... [tags: gregor samsa, transformation]

- Gregor’s Guilt Guilt can kill even the strongest people. In the book Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka, Gregor Samsa chose to isolate himself from society because of his busy life and job.

Through this job, his family, and the transformation Gregor experiences a large amount of guilt. Gregor did not like his job but due to the fact that he felt the need to support his family, Gregor continued on with his career as long as he could....

- Arguably one of Franz Kafka 's most brilliant works, The Metamorphosis provides many ambiguities for readers to consider. One of the many thought-provoking aspects of Kafka’s story is Gregor Samsa 's transformation into a bug, rather than any other animal. What is Kafka trying to say by using this symbol to describe Gregor. One explanation for this may be the many qualities that Gregor 's character shares with bugs and how they are perceived by humans. Through the details presented in the story, it is clear that Kafka has chosen for Gregor to become a bug because, like an insect, he has a robotic-like work ethic, an altruistic nature, and lacks of significance to others....
