Franz Kafka's Metamorphosis is a story of a man's transformation into a giant bug. It tries to explore the eerie and confusing nature of human minds by using multi-layered metaphors. The striking originality of the story has the protagonist Gregor Samsa, a travelijng salesman undergoing this transformation, and becoming unfit to work. This leads his family to begin working again. This Chelsea House Publishers' Modern Interpretation Series also bring out the collection of criticism, a small biography on Kafka and the criticism on his story The Metamorphosis through essays by the famous literary critics. The book is translated by Willa Muir and Edwin Muir. About the authors Frank Kafka was a German writer and was a strong propagator of existentialism.
