Publisher Description

Metamorphosis is a biological process by which an animal physically develops after birth or hatching, involving a conspicuous and relatively abrupt change in the animal's body structure through cell growth and differentiation. Some insects, amphibians, molluscs, crustaceans, Cnidarians, echinoderms and tunicates undergo metamorphosis, which is usually accompanied by a change of habitat or behavior.


Scientific usage of the term is exclusive, and is not applied to general aspects of cell growth, including rapid growth spurts. References to "metamorphosis" in mammals are imprecise and only colloquial, but historically idealist ideas of transformation and monadology, as in Goethe's Metamorphosis of Plants, influenced the development of ideas of evolution.

    Worth reading many times.

    This book evokes many curiosities, on purpose I think. And so, whilst the novella may seem simple on the eye, there’s a lot to discover and learn from as you try to answer those questions.
    This book would therefore be relevant to a divers selection of factors that influence our lives and it’s perceptive simplicity.

    Utter ridiculousness

    I don’t even know where to begin with how much I hated this supposed “classic”.

    Incredible storytelling

    Kafka is a master at a simple tale told well.
