Shortly after completing "The Metamorphosis," Kafka wrote in his diary: The arrangement of the vowels in Samsa is the same as in Kafka. Instead, he implicitly shows compassion for Gregor by allowing the family to care for him. Gregor's crawling up and down the wall, his delighting in dirt, and the fact that he "takes food only as a pastime" — all these are described in detail and presented as normal; at the same time, however, on the morning of his metamorphosis, Gregor "catches at some kind of irrational hope" that nobody will open the door.

Joseph, too, did not hear the alarm, and he, like Gregor, was taken prisoner. The selection of an ordinary individual as victim heightens the impact of the absurd.
Grete is so upset and revolted by the way he looks that she can hardly stand to be in the room with him, and his mother is so horrified when she sees him as she and Grete are moving his furniture that she faints.

Their lives are based on ever-new compromises and calculations. Gregor is not an enchanted prince in a fairy tale, yearning for deliverance from his animal state; instead, he is a rather average salesman who awakens and finds himself transformed into an insect.
