The short story “The Metamorphosis” or “Die Verwandlung,” by Franz Kafka, was first published in German in 1915, and translated into English in 1936. The principal character, Gregor Samsa, a travelling salesman, finds himself transformed into a gigantic insect. The story uses metaphors to focus on the illusion of freedom in a repressed human existence from which the only escape is death.
