Intro: The Metamorphosis

“One morning, upon awakening from agitated dreams, Gregor Samsa found himself, in his bed, transformed into a monstrous vermin.  He lay on his hard, armorlike back, and when lifting his head slightly, he could view his brown, vaulted belly partitioned by arching ridges, while on top of it, the blanket, about to slide off altogether, could barely hold.  His many legs, wretchedly thin compared with his overall girth, danced helplessly before his eyes.”

The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka
