Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book tells the tale of Gregor Samsa, a young salesman, who wakes up one day to find he has turned into ‘a kind of giant bug. Samsa has been a model of virtue for years, single handedly supporting his parents and sister, but suddenly he finds himself an outcast in his own home, facing a world in which he no longer has a place. Both harrowing and humorous, this book is a strange, subtle and moving story which everyone should read.

Synopsis:

The Metamorphosis, first published in 1915, is the most famous of Kafka's works, along with The Trial and The Castle. The story begins when a traveling salesman, Gregor Samsa, wakes up to find himself transformed into a giant insect. Curiously, his condition does not arouse surprise in his family, who merely despise it as an impending burden. As with all of Kafka's works, The Metamorphosis is open to a wide range of interpretations. Most obvious are themes relating to society's treatment of those who are different, the loneliness of isolation, and the absurdity of the human condition. Newly designed and typeset in a modern 5.5-by-8.5-inch format by Waking Lion Press.
