This edition contains the English translation and the original text in German. "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. "Die Verwandlung" ist eine im Jahr 1912 entstandene Erzählung von Franz Kafka, die in seinem Gesamtwerk eine herausragende Stellung einnimmt. Der Text wurde zunächst 1915 im Oktoberheft der Zeitschrift "Die Weißen Blätter" unter der Redaktion von René Schickele veröffentlicht. Die Erstausgabe in Buchform erschien im Dezember 1915 in der Reihe "Der jüngste Tag", herausgegeben von Kurt Wolff.

A brilliant, darkly comic reimagining of Kafka’s classic tale of family, alienation, and a giant bug. Acclaimed graphic artist Peter Kuper presents a kinetic illustrated adaptation of Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis. Kuper’s electric drawings—where American cartooning meets 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.

Poetic drama 5m, 3f. Some doubling, 1 Klezmer musician. Dreams are sometimes considered metaphors that help us understand the events in our lives. In this dramatic adaptation of Kafka's novella, Gregor Samsa awakens into a dream in which he finds himself transformed into a cockroach. The Stage Manager "summons" the dream-play while a mime and a musician communicate his thoughts and emotions, invoking a nightmarish atmosphere. Set in early 20th century Prague and written in verse, Thomalen captures the surreal humor and pathos of the story. This work opens a space in the school community for a great work of world literature with special relevance to the pain and struggles of adolescence and young adulthood. Requires an actor with strong mimic talent. Winner of the American Theatre and Education, Unpublished Play Reading Project.
