The Metamorphosis is a serious of stories that follow the life of Gregor Samsa, a traveling salesman. The story begins when one morning Gregor awakes to find himself transformed into a large insect like creature. His family and colleges have a growing concern at his absence from work but upon checking on him are abhorred by his grotesque appearance. The stories then follow Gregor’s thought process, since the family can no longer understand his language. Gregor realizes what a burden he is to the family, and how they are constantly repelled at his new appearance. Without ever giving a reason for his transformation, Kafka tells an intriguing tale of one man's thoughts throughout a trying time.

The Metamorphosis begins almost comically. A man wakes up to find he has turned into an insect. But the claustrophobic, dirty room and the increasingly distressed narrator soon turn this into a tale of slow horror. Most horrifying of all is his family's reaction to his metamorphosis and their final solution to the problem.
