ENG 360—Gender and Literature September 7-9 Coming back to dis-ease/disease Franz Kafka - Born 1883 in Prague - Died 1924 in Vienna - Die Verwandlung (transformation) – published 1915 - German word for “metamorphosis” is “metamorphose” - Metamorphosis (novella) o Attention-grabbing opening sentence; then moves on to give specific details o Gregor Samsa wakes up to find he has been transformed into a bug/beetle o Lives with his parents and his sister, Grete o Why do they assume that bug is Gregor? That’s how they thought about him all along? – maybe the “metamorphosis” is the truth about their lack of respect for him coming out o How can we assume Gregor was treated before turning into a bug? Not well, since he sees how they treat him now as “kindness o The picture on the wall – a woman all bundled up in fur Gregor clings to it not wanting it removed so that he is better able to hang on to his humanity o Split into three sections: 1. Day one 2. Time passes – transformation on many levels Gregor into a bug Grete – from a useless, annoying girl, to a hardworking, purposed individual Gregor’s father – always wearing his uniform Gregor’s room – normal, then things get taken out (intending to give him more room to move around), then put back, then it sort of becomes a storage room when the three tenants move in 3.
