Use your introduction to identify your understanding of Kafka’s purpose.

 

Each body paragraph should address the following:

 

Body paragraph one: What questions about human nature does the text explore?

 

Body paragraph two: What assumptions about family and a family’s responsibility to its members does the story explore?

 

Body paragraph three: What are the consequences of Gregor’s metamorphosis for the family and of their treatment of him?

 

Body paragraph four: How does the text define the concepts of family, love, responsibility, or humanity? (Pick one or two that are most relevant for your focus.)

 

Body paragraph five: How do you interpret Gregor’s transformation? Why does Kafka have him become a dung beetle?

 

Body paragraph six: What is Gregor’s point of view?

 

Body paragraph seven: Evaluate Gregor’s family’s response to him from the values of integrity and community.
