There are several ways through which Kafka became especially sensitive to victimary processes, including his childhood experiences and his work as a lawyer.

A conspicuous factor was undoubtedly the victimisation of Jews in his own lifetime. See, e. Sander L. In this sense, Gregor represents an alter ego in which Kafka has embodied his own weakness and feelings of guilt. Although J. Gross [eds. Werner Hoffmann, Kafkas Aphorismen, Bern , The brief and hesitating theologically-oriented comment by this author does not explain anything.

The lack of any reference to this aphorism in the general comments provided by Roberto Calasso Aforismi di Zur au, Milano suggests that this writer has not the slightest idea about its meaning. Strelka [ed. In fact, throughout the text Gregor is sometimes designated with the neuter pronoun, but most frequently with the masculine pronoun. Golyadkin wakes up from a long sleep, but he lies in his bed not being quite certain whether he is awake or still asleep and whether all that is going on around him is real and genuine, or the continuation of his confused dreams.

Immediately afterwards, both protagonists close their eyes and try to sleep again. Golyadkin tries to attend a party at the home of his former 14 September 2, Br II: In this scene, several parallels to the third part of Die Verwandlung are perceptible. At a certain moment, he dashes into the midst of a social meeting to which he has not been invited.

He claims a dance with Klara, but he is again rejected. Then Golyadkin is unceremoniously taken by some hands and guided straight to the door, swept away, and thrown out. It is after having had this experience of stark humiliation that complete loss of self-esteem, shame and the figure of the double appear. Apart from the opening paragraph of both stories, there are obvious parallels between them: both heroes suffer from the effects of social exclusion and lack of affection, both must conceal themselves in the midst of rubbish because of the shame and the fear of being rejected, both are psychologically degraded through this very concealment, both see themselves as vermin, both imagine a happy ending to their unhappiness, both appear before other characters during a social meeting a dance with orchestra in the case of The Double, and a violin performance in Die Verwandlung , and both are actually rejected by a young girl Golyadkin by Klara, and Gregor by Grete — who will condemn him to death at the end of the story —.

As Severin is finan- cially dependent on his father and then his mistress, so Gregor is financially dependent on his father, even if he earns the money.

Waldeck has pointed to the possibility that it could be determined by the letters mas[och] backwards and sa[cher], from the compound family name of the author of Venus im Pelz Waldeck —; Rudloff 16f. This entails a degrading process which results in the fact that they both are compared to animals, and even to objects. Another common point in both stories is the importance of a lady in furs.

The depiction of this scene makes it clear that there exist some kind of erotic ties between Gregor and the fur-clad woman in the picture. Such a lesson seems not to have been learned by Gregor Samsa, but by Kafka himself. In this sense, Gregor Samsa represents an alter ego in which Kafka has embodied his own weakness and feelings of guilt.

This has been indeed argued by Mark Spilka, who has presented a plausible case Spilka — This literary relationship is especially discernable in a scene from Chapter 4 of David Copperfield. Simply for having botched his spelling lesson, David is brutally whipped by his stepfather, who is actually the household tyrant.

Just as Jesus is abandoned by his disciples and betrayed three times by Peter, Gregor is progressively abandoned by his relatives, and the three times he goes out of his room he is rejected.

Incidentally, this letter is dated November 18th, just one day after Kafka had begun to write Die Verwandlung. Jesus is said to have died at the ninth hour Mark f and parallels , which means 3 p.

Gregor dies after the tower clock strikes three in the morning 3 a. The death of Jesus of Nazareth was interpreted in the Christian tradition from the Pauline writings on as a sacrificial and expiatory event. Gregor Samsa has been unmistakably depicted by Kafka, as I have repeatedly remarked, as a victim of his family.

If we take into account the most convincing cases made in order to detect the pre-texts and literary echoes in this novella, however, we can draw relevant and unexpected conclusions. Beyond the obvious differences between The Double and David Copperfield, or between the intense eroticism of Venus im Pelz and the deep religious sense of the Gospels, we find in these works striking features in common. Severin is turned by Wanda and also by himself into a miserable slave. Copperfield and Lemekh are locked up in a room; Jesus is ridiculed and subjected to the most ignomi- nious kind of execution.

Furthermore, the process of degradation reaches such an extent, that, in every case, the protagonist is degraded to a subhuman category and compared to an animal: Golyadkin and Severin to an insect, Copperfield and Severin to a dog, and Lemekh and Jesus generically to an animal ready to be sacrificed. The fact that all these texts have these key basic elements in common does not seem to be sheer coincidence. This is yet another hint at the way Die Verwandlung should be read.

What intertextuality tells us about Gregor Samsa, therefore, is that he is not an animal and a monster, but simply a human being — a human being, however, who is a victim, and accordingly undergoes a strong process of degradation. All this fits very well with certain indications made by Kafka himself about his plans for publishing his novella with other works of his.

Kritische Aus- gabe, hrsg. Born, G. Neumann, M. Gregor spends his time listening through the wall to his family members talking. They often discuss the difficult financial situation they find themselves in now that Gregor can't provide them any help.

Gregor had plans of sending Grete to the conservatory to pursue violin lessons, something everyone else—including Grete—considered a dream. His inability to provide for his family, coupled with his speechlessness, greatly reduce his thought processes.

Gregor also learns that his mother wants to visit him, but his sister and father will not let her. Gregor grows more comfortable with his changed body. He begins climbing the walls and ceiling for amusement.

Discovering Gregor's new pastime, Grete decides to remove some of the furniture to give Gregor more space. She and her mother begin taking furniture away, but Gregor finds their actions deeply distressing. He tries to save a picture on the wall of a woman wearing a fur hat, fur scarf, and fur muff.

Grete has been asked to play the violin for them, and Gregor—who usually takes care to avoid crossing paths with anyone in the flat—creeps out of his bedroom to listen in the midst of his depression and resultant detachment.

One of the lodgers spots Gregor, and the rest become alarmed. Gregor's father tries to shove the lodgers back into their rooms, but the three men protest and announce that they will move out immediately without paying rent because of the disgusting conditions in the apartment.

Grete, who has by now become tired of taking care of Gregor and is realizing the burden his existence puts on each one in the family, tells her parents they must get rid of Gregor, or they will all be ruined.

Her father agrees, wishing Gregor could understand them and would leave of his own accord. Gregor does, in fact, understand and slowly moves back to the bedroom. There, determined to rid his family of his presence, Gregor dies from starvation, because he was so depressed he refused to eat.
