the metamorphosis -
the unusual life story of gregor samsa. gregor is the sole provider for his useless and emotionally abusive family. one morning he turns into a huge bug. his unprecedental transformation is horrifying to his family, but more so because it means gregor will be unable to leave the house and work. his boss is also an abusive man too who scolds gregor for turning into a bug and demands he stop his nonsense so he can return to work.

basically, gregor's transformation is a metaphorical representation of how the proletariat is dehumanized and desensitized under the power of the bourgeoisie. all gregor can think about is how being a bug has made him late for work, and he eventually apologizes to his boss for the delay, with little concern for his own welfare. he becomes something that operates only from instinct and is incapable of personal thought.

quotes from books -
'if you could fly to france in one minute, you could go straight into the sunset, right from noon. unfortunately, france is too far away for that. but on your tiny planet, my little prince, all you need do is move your chair a few steps. you can see the day end and the twilight falling whenever you like'
'one day, you said to me, i saw the sunset forty-four times!
and a little later you added:
you know one loves the sunset, when one is so sad
were you so sad, then? i asked, on the day of the forty-four sunsets?
but the little prince made no reply.
