The Loss of Gregor Samsa, and Kafka’s Use of Language
Gregor Samsa in Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis suffers an unspeakable loss and an unsayable ending. Gregor’s experience of loss includes a descent from a dark life as a clerk providing a means of life for his family to an even darker existence as an insect finding solitude under the sofa of Ms own living room. Finally, after starving to death, Gregor’s remains are dealt with by the charwoman in a manner for which Kafka has no language.
