Summary

“I cannot make you understand. I cannot make anyone understand what is happening inside me. I cannot even explain it to myself.” (Gregor Samsa, The Metamorphosis)

The Metamorphosis is one of the most commonly referenced books when you talk about absurd literature. It is heralded as a masterpiece of the existential literature genre because of how it demands the reader to accept the absurdity of the world just as it is. Although some of the events of the story are fantastical in nature, the ideas it conveys about existence, the meaning of life, and humanity are relatable to us in the real world, too.
