Gregor Samsa wakes up one morning to find he has been transformed into a gigantic insect. This extraordinary tale of imagination was written by Kafka against the backdrop of increasing turmoil in central Europe and remains not just an affecting tale but a disturbing allegory. It is read here, in a new translation, by master story teller Martin Jarvis.

This is so awesomesque...
The easiest way to learn how to use the word "kafkaesque", by "reading" one of his strangest stories of a man who turns into a bug...hmm, that sounds esque...Kafkaesque...
I recall someone saying this strange little story was really a comedy. If so, there's only one joke. Nicely presented, though.
