Metamorphosis Essay

Frank Kafka’s Novel “The Metamorphosis” not only deals with the transformation of Gregor but his sister Grete also. As Gregor changed into a bug Grete changed into the old Gregor.
After the family had realized that Gregor was completely changed and a bug he became hopeless. So Grete changed into the old Gregor by feeling the need to take care of him. Just like Gregor feeling the need to have to pay off his families debts.
This changed their views on themselves because Gregor began to feel as if he was no longer apart of the family. And Grete began to feel as if she had to take on all responsibilities.
Their look upon the world also changed because Gregor felt as if he was not apart of it. And Grete felt as if the world was on her shoulders.
There Metamorphosis Contribute to the overall meaning that even though we go through out changes in our life we all end feeling and seeing life in the same view point, at one time or another. I believe Kafka’s message from this book was that he’d rather be an outcast in the world than to deal with all the stress fro the world on him.
