#METAMORPHOSIS

The word Metamorphosis drives from the greek μεταμόρφωσις, “transformation, transforming” Metamorphosis is a biological process by which an animal physically develops after birth or hatching, involving a conspicuous and relatively abrupt change in the animal’s body structure through cell growth and differentiation. References to “metamorphosis” in mammals are imprecise and only colloquial, but historically idealist ideas of transformation and monadology, as in Goethe’s Metamorphosis of Plants, influenced the development of ideas of evolution.

Lots of heavy and deep interpretations have already been made about this tale of transformation, evolution (or rather unevolution) and humanity. The beauty of Kafka’s tale is that it can elicit all of these readings while still wiggling an antennae or two for some earthy entomological hilarity.

SUMARY:Gregor Samsa wakes up one day ready to go to work when he realises he’s transformed into a giant bug. The household finds him in this new body and shuts him out. Still perplexed and horrified by Gregor’s new body, both Gregor and the family settle into a routine in the following weeks and months. While Gregor gets to know the capabilities of his new body, Grete, his sister, becomes his primary caretaker, feeding him twice a day and cleaning his room. After a few atribulations due to Gregor’s new human form, Grete insists that Gregor must be gotten rid of at all costs. Gregor, who is famished, exhausted, and depressed, dies early the next morning.
