The Metamorphosis is a story about change and how change affects the Samsa family.
The change to Gregor had caused his father to try to kill him. His father even threw apples at Gregor and one of them even injured Gregor. Gregor's father had no intention of keeping a roach in the house. When he tried to kill Gregor he was stopped by his wife who was protecting Gregor. He wanted to get rid of Gregor but was not in the majority vote.
Gregor's change affected his mother severely, she loved her son but could not bear to see what he had become. She had voted with her daughter to not get rid of Gregor because she had cared for him. The change to her son had devastated Gregor's mother because she didn't know what to do. She would defend Gregor from his father but she still couldn't look at him. No matter how much she had cared for her son she still couldn't look at him anymore.
The change to Gregor was him becoming a roach and in the beginning, he didn't even notice the change. But after his family saw him he could never forget the change. His mother would faint at the sight of him and his father wanted to kill him. He tried to hold on to his humanity but he didn't even like fresh food anymore. In the beginning, Gregor wanted to help his family but now he had become a nuisance for the family.
He was more concerned about his job rather that figuring out what happened to him
"Oh God," he thought,"what a grueling job I've picked! (Pg.3)
He was more mad about the job he picked rather that what he had become.
After she understands that the roach is Gregor she want to go see him.
She understands now more than ever he son needs her because he also must be confused and needs support.
"Let me go to Gregor, he is my unfortunate boy!"(Pg.30)
His father trying to get rid of the roach that his wife had discovered in Gregor's room.
He was hissing as to make the roach want to leave and he forced it back to Gregor's room.
After he had become a roach he didn't understand what had happened to him and if it was real or not.
"His many legs, pitifully thin compared with the size of the rest of him, were waving helplessly before his eyes." what's happened to me?"(pg.3)
He had turn into a roach and he couldn't tell if it was a dream or not.
This was the first time Gregor's mother saw Gregor
"Help, for God's sake, Help!"(Pg.17)
She had not yet realized that what see was looking at was Gregor and she was freaked out.
After getting the roach back to the room it wouldn't go through the door so Gregor's father gave it a push.
"when behind his father gave him a hard shove"(Pg.19)
"Pitilessly his father came on, hissing like wild man."(Pg.18)
Gregor's father was very annoyed by the bug because it would not go away but once it was near the room he could give it that last push to get rid of the roach.
