    English essay Symbolism behind objects and their importance in describing Gregor, Grete and their relation The metamorphosis is a novel written by Franz Kafka and published in 1915. In this novel the author tells the story of Gregor Samsa, a travelling salesman who lived with his family, and sustained financially till the day we woke up to realize he had transformed into a "monstrous vermin" . Gregor ends up dying due to starvation and he is thrown to the garbage. The cause of death of Franz Kafka and the main character in this novella is particularly the same. This novel is full of symbolism created by inanimate objects which help to describe and develop characters and illustrates also the relationship between Gregor and Grete. Grete was Gregor`s sister. In the second part of the short story, the transformation had already took place. Although Gregor had transformed into a "monstrous vermin" his sister took food to him. She was the one who was really taking care of the person who had been the head of the family and preventing his starvation to death.

  • Carnival Of Revolution Analysis

    This very large street demonstration was met with brutal force by the police officers. Being corralled into small streets and being boxed in by lines of policemen the students were systematically beaten. One of the largest mistakes for the regime, like we have covered in the other instances of student lead demonstrations is that attacking the students only hardens the resolve of the parents to fight the injustice.
