Essay on Symbolism in Kafkas Metamorphosis -- Kafka Metamorphosis Ess
Symbolism in Franz Kafkas The Metamorphosis Kafka uses symbolism in his short story, Metamorphosis. He uses this technique to ingest the reader try and figure out what was going on in his head. He brought out in this story many things about his life, including his yield/family, love life, and his future. He used metaphors to show his love for people in his life. This story is autobiographical about the forces that control Franz Kafkas life. In this paper I will explain how Kafka relates his life to the readers through the story in Metamorphosis. Franz Kafka had discomfit at home with his mystify. His father wanted him to become a lawyer, moreover Franz did non want to be a lawyer, he wanted to be a writer. He went to law school against his will, because his father wanted him to go there. He then took a high paying position with the politics of Czechoslovakia in an insurance post. In the story, Gregor?s father had very littler respect for him, and Gregor had to work to pay absent the family debts. That is an example of Gregor?s father?s control over his life and Kafka?s situation was similar. He eventually was forced to become a lawyer, whereas what Kafka wanted was a literary degree. Franz Kafka made his character, Gregor, transform into an insect in the story. Nobody wants to associate themselves with an insect, which is a lowly creature, a pest, or nuisance. This symbolizes Kafka?s depression and his poor self image. Since his family treats the insect like an outcast, that must be how Franz felt about the word that his own family gave him. It showed the control that his father put on him. He was not allowed to leave his room. Gregor?s parents were so afraid to take... ... After Gregor dies, at the terminus of the story, his parents notice that his sister has grown up into a beautiful cleaning woman and they feel that it is time for her to get married. This means that they used Gregor as the douse who went out and supported them. No w that his sister is grown up they fag force her into marrying a rich man. Then they would be well off for a long time to come. They can now control the fille like they did Gregor. Grete?s new husband can support the upstanding family. Once she is married, she too will then become a pawn, a victim of her parents control. The main theme of the story is the effect of other?s control on a person such as his birth with his father, and how his father for controlled his life. He realized that he was his own person when he could escape from his father?s control, even if the only escape was death.
