The Metamorphosis in 10 Minutes | Franz Kafka

The Metamorphosis is a book written by Franz Kafka and published in 1915. It has been called one of the seminal works of fiction of the 20th century as well as a classic absurdist fiction book. It starts off with one of the most iconic opening lines in literature: “As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams he found himself transformed in his bed into a monstrous vermin.” Franz Kafka's Metamorphosis embodies an absurdist tone with ordinary daily concerns (such as being late for work) even after Gregor Samsa's extraordinary transformation into a monstrous vermin. It is an allegory of modern society's alienation and angst. The story mostly takes place in a single confined room. The cause of Gregor’s transformation is never revealed, and Kafka himself never gave an explanation. ━━━━━━━━━━━━━ ⭐ Support the channel buying merch (thank you!) ▶ Redbubble ▶ Spring ⭐ Support on your preferred platform (thank you!) ▶ Patreon ▶ YouTube Member ▶ Ko-fi ━━━━━━━━━━━━━ The Book ▶ The Metamorphosis (1915) Other Recommended Reading (High Quality and Best Translations) ▶ The Trial (1925) ▶ The Castle (1926) Prefer Audiobooks?
