The family's state of affairs improves
They all go insane
They, too, fade into obscurity
Becomes increasingly keen
Begins to vanish
Is ticked off by the ever-advancing second hand on his precious watch.
Countless impetuous actions.
Failing to act when he should.
Hating his sister.
They got along like a house on fire.
It was turbulent and strained.
He did not have a father.
Squashed dead by the charwoman
Jumps out of his window
Dies in the early morning without any fanfare.
He sings along with her playing.
He hides under the sofa.
He crawls toward her in the parlor.
He decides to send her to music school.
Kafka dreamt up the character of Gregor.
Gregor is based on Kafka's father.
The Metamorphosis could be viewed as autobiographical.
Relieved and happy
Bitter and resentful
Confused and angry
Sad and depressed
Choosing an inconvenient and impractical apartment
Never buying them nice furniture
Soiling their apartment
