Playreading: The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka

Celebrated as one of the most widely read and influential works of twentieth-century fiction, The Metamorphosis is the story of a young man who, transformed overnight into a giant insect, becomes an object of disgrace to his family, an outsider in his own home, a quintessentially alienated man. A disturbing, though absurdly comic, reflection on human feelings of inadequacy, guilt, and isolation.
