Franz Kafka Metamorphosis Change

Decent Essays
Gregor, the main character from the book, “The Metamorphosis” written by Franz Kafka, is about a young man that works to hard and turned into a bug because his parents pushed him to be a hard worker. Gregor turning into a bug really changed his perspectives on life in a bad way. He felt socially isolated and like an outcast which eventually lead him into a great depression where he stopped eating and eventually died of starvation. Since society's expectations differ from person to person, change is inevitable and can be hard to adjust to.
