Thoughts on Metamorphosis
Metamorphosis has been hard for me to tack a theme on to. That being said, the impirtance of Gregor's appearance seems to overwhelm his other qualities. What I mean is that people almost forget that Gregor has emotional and rational faculties, excluding Gregor's sister. I also find it very interesting that people immediately assume that a giant cockroach looking thing is Gregor. In stories written before Kafka's time I don't think characters would have been so accepting. I am only half way through the book, so some of this may end up being nonsense.
