‘The Metamorphosis’ by Kafka it gives us a story about transformation, abandoned by parents, relationship with sister. Instead of receiving love Gregor is an outcast and trying to find his way to a human again. One would normally think of the home and family as a sanctuary; however the evidence is true for Gregor Samsa in Franz Kafka’s ‘The Metamorphosis’. Instead of receiving love from his family, Gregor is mistreated.
Gregor transformation into a bug started into his room waking up thinking it was a dream and to go back to sleep. And everything will be normal but it was really reality Gregor life was really over. He realized he was a bug when he couldn’t put on his clothes or walk as usual, unlock his room door. Gregor was more worried about his job and career then his life or how people looked at him he wanted to work and be successful i felt as if this wasn’t for Gregor why was he turned into a bug. his life was over he had to live his life ashamed and closed behind a door no job no career nothing to look forward to or no one to call on that really loved him. Gregor had grew more comfortable into his body he began to climb the walls for amusement. Grete was disgusted by her brother but she began to be her brother caretaker because nobody else would do it. Gregor parents they looked at Gregor as a bug instead of there son very mistreated so Grete stepped in and started to take care of her brother. Started to feed him milk and bread but he doesn’t have no care for it so his sister take away the milk and bread and gives him rotten food and he happily eats it. So Grete becomes tired of taking care of her brother and tells her parents that they must get rid of Gregor or they will be ruined and her father agrees that’s very bad to hear about to try to get rid of yr own very son. Gregor had it bad he turned into a bug, lost his job what he really like doing best, family was ashamed of him, wanted to get rid of him. it was already a lot pressure on him being a bug and didn’t know to be human again his parents couldn’t even come in to visit him in the first 2 weeks. Gregor spent his nights and days with hardly any sleep he was filed with sheer anger over the wrenched care he was getting and Gregor hardly ate anything anymore. No one paid him any attention anymore they was all caught up in the violin playing Gregor use to lay motionless the entire time in the spot where the lodgers had caught him. Gregor family takes a trolley ride out to the countryside they decide to move to a smaller apartment to further save money. an act they were unable to carry out in Gregor’s presence. Gregor understand them when they want him to leave or they will be ruined he move slowly back to the bedroom. There, determined to rid his family of his presence Gregor dies, though it is not clear whether the cause of the death was suicide or natural cause. the family finds out Gregor is dead and is beyond happy of his death so they want put up with him.
My experience from this story taught me alot how they brought Gregor a lot of pain. And didn’t care for him when he turned into a bug and i felt as if they was using Gregor for his money to keep they house so when Gregor turned into a bug and couldn’t do nothing for them anymore they thought he was worthless. It isn’t his fought he turned into a bug and couldn’t do anything for himself anymore. He knew his family wouldn’t be happy with him finding out they son is a bug but they could have took it better then they did i think Gregor died because of sadness from how his family treated him so he commited suicide.
