Students, after reading and discussing, "The Metamorphosis," by Franz Kafka, explain the symbolism of Gregor's metamorphosis moving beyond a literal view of "he turned into a bug" into the idea that society/family/stress/environment led to his abstract reaction. They analyze a variety of literary elements in connection with its universal themes.
Students discuss the central image of Franz Kafka's Metamorphosis and use a strong symbol in a piece of writing. In this Metamorphosis lesson, students focus on the central image of the novel in a class discussion. Students create a symbol that represents a big idea and incorporate the symbol in an original essay.
