The Metamorphosis
The Metamorphosis THE METAMORPHOSIS I believe that the overall theme to the story of the Metamorphosis by Kafka concerns society’s injusticies and moralities and how they have reduced to a despicable level. Throughout the story Kafka shows how society can be split into different sections, with Gregor representing the working and useful man at the time and his family representing all the other kinds of people throughout society. When a person is no longer needed as a provider, a son, a brother or

1984 vs Brave New World In Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four and Huxley’s Brave New World, the authoritative figures strive for freedom, peace, and stability for all, to develop a utopian society.

Moreover, he tells Nora that women are responsible for the morality of their children. “In essence, he sees women as both childlike, helpless beings detached from reality and
