The Metamorphosis Salesman Gregor Samsa wakes up one morning and discovers he has transformed into an insect! His worried family is knocking at the door and he’s late for his job! What should Gregor do?
Franz Kafka The Metamorphosis (German: Die Verwandlung, also sometimes translated as The Transformation) is a novella by Franz Kafka, first published in 1915. It has been cited as one of the seminal works of fiction of the 20th century and is studied in colleges and universities across the Western world. The story begins with a traveling salesman, Gregor Samsa, waking to find himself transformed (metamorphosed) into a large, monstrous insect-like creature. The cause of Samsa's transformation is never revealed, and Kafka never did give an explanation. The rest of Kafka's novella deals with Gregor's attempts to adjust to his new condition as he deals with being burdensome to his parents and sister, who are repulsed by the horrible, verminous creature Gregor has become.

Franz Kafka Our 3rd free ebook from ReadFwd Editions is one of Kafka’s lesser-known writings. A very short one, called “A Hunger Artist”. Here’s a paragraph that might convince you to quickly read this one. It’s worth every second spent reading it. “I always wanted you to admire my fasting,” said the hunger artist. “But we do admire it,” said the supervisor obligingly. “But you shouldn’t admire it,” said the hunger artist. “Well then, we don’t admire it,” said the supervisor, “but why shouldn’t we admire it?” ”Because I had to fast. I can’t do anything else,” said the hunger artist. “Just look at you,” said the supervisor, “why can’t you do anything else?” ”Because,” said the hunger artist, lifting his head a little and, with his lips pursed as if for a kiss, speaking right into the supervisor’s ear so that he wouldn’t miss anything, “because I couldn’t find a food which tasted good to me. If had found that, believe me, I would not have made a spectacle of myself and would have eaten to my heart’s content, like you and everyone else.”

Franz Kafka Metamorphosis is a biological process by which an animal physically develops after birth or hatching, involving a conspicuous and relatively abrupt change in the animal's body structure through cell growth and differentiation. Some insects, amphibians, molluscs, crustaceans, Cnidarians, echinoderms and tunicates undergo metamorphosis, which is usually accompanied by a change of habitat or behavior.
Scientific usage of the term is exclusive, and is not applied to general aspects of cell growth, including rapid growth spurts. References to "metamorphosis" in mammals are imprecise and only colloquial, but historically idealist ideas of transformation and monadology, as in Goethe's Metamorphosis of Plants, influenced the development of ideas of evolution.

Franz Kafka Als Gregor Samsa eines Morgens aus unruhigen Träumen erwachte, fand er sich in seinem Bett zu einem ungeheueren Ungeziefer verwandelt. Er lag auf seinem panzerartig harten Rücken und sah, wenn er den Kopf ein wenig hob, seinen gewölbten, braunen, von bogenförmigen Versteifungen geteilten Bauch, auf dessen Höhe sich die Bettdecke, zum gänzlichen Niedergleiten bereit, kaum noch erhalten konnte. Seine vielen, im Vergleich zu seinem sonstigen Umfang kläglich dünnen Beine flimmerten ihm hilflos vor den Augen.
Franz Kafka Era domingo por la mañana 21 en lo más hermoso de la primavera. Georg Bendemann, un joven comerciante,· estaba sentado en su habitación en el primer piso de una de las casas bajas y de construcción ligera que se extendía a lo largo del río en forma de hilera, y que sólo se distinguía entre sí por la altura y el color. Acababa de terminar una carta a un amigo de su juventud que se encontraba en el extranjero, la cerró con lentitud juguetona y miró luego, con el codo apoyado sobre el escritorio» por la ventana, hacia el río, el puente y las colinas de la otra orilla con su color verde pálido 22. Reflexionó sobre cómo este amigo, descontento de su éxito en su ciudad natal, había literalmente huido ya hacía años a Rusia. Ahora tenía un negocio en San Petersburgo, que al principio había marchado muy bien, pero que desde hacía tiempo parecía haberse estancado, tal como había lamentado el amigo en una de sus cada vez más infrecuentes visitas.
Franz Kafka Written in 1914, The Trial is one of the most important novels of the twentieth century: the terrifying tale of Josef K., a respectable bank officer who is suddenly and inexplicably arrested and must defend himself against a charge about which he can get no information. Whether read as an existential tale, a parable, or a prophecy of the excesses of modern bureaucracy wedded to the madness of totalitarianism, Kafka's nightmare has resonated with chilling truth for generations of readers. This new edition is based upon the work of an international team of experts who have restored the text, the sequence of chapters, and their division to create a version that is as close as possible to the way the author left it.
In his brilliant translation, Breon Mitchell masterfully reproduces the distinctive poetics of Kafka's prose, revealing a novel that is as full of energy and power as it was when it was first written.
