"When Gregor Samsa woke up one morning from unsettling dreams, he found himself changed in his bed into a monstrous vermin." With this startling, bizarre, yet surprisingly funny first sentence, Kafka begins his masterpiece, The Metamorphosis. It is the story of a young man who, transformed overnight into a giant beetlelike insect, becomes an object of disgrace to his family, an outsider in his own home, a quintessentially alienated man. A harrowing -- though absurdly comic -- meditation on human feelings of inadequecy, guilt, and isolation, The Metamorphosis has taken its place as one of the mosst widely read and influential works of twentieth-century fiction. As W.H. Auden wrote, "Kafka is important to us because his predicament is the predicament of modern man."From the Inside Flap:
Acclaimed graphic artist Peter Kuper presents a brilliant, darkly comic reimagining of Kafka?s classic tale of family, alienation, and a giant bug. Kuper?s electric drawings?which merge American cartooning with German expressionism?bring Kafka?s prose to vivid life, reviving the original story?s humor and poignancy in a way that will surprise and delight readers of Kafka and graphic novels alike.
?A brilliant illustrated adaptation of Franz Kafka?s famous story. It?s a real pleasure to read and one in which everyone will recognize the existential drama and uncanny wit of the original text."?Susan Bernstein, associate professor of comparative literature and German studies, Brown University
