In The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka, the protagonist finds himself alienated from his surroundings. Analyze the ways the main character, Gregor, in a nearly unbearable situation, reacts to what is happening around him. How would you characterize the relationship between Gregor and his sister Grete at the opening of the novel? How are they like and unlike each other? What seems to bond them together so closely? What is the new nature of the relationship between Grete and Gregor as they evolve throughout Part Two? How does each of them think about their relationship now? What is your own reaction to this evolution in their relationship? Talk about the theme of death in Part Three. Think about the different ways death is alluded to even prior to Gregor’s death, and discuss what Kafka seems to be saying about death in the novel. What happens at the end of the novel to influence the messages Kafka communicates about duty and obligation, particularly in relation to one’s family? What, if anything, surprises you about how these themes are addressed?
