Storyboard Text

  • The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka
  • What?
  • I hate my job.
  • Time for work, Gregor!
  • Gregory wakes up, he finds himself transformed into a vermin thinking and wondering if he is just in a bad dream. "One morning, when Gregor Samsa woke from troubled dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a horrible vermin" (Kafka 93)
  • Hello? This is Gregor's boss and I was wondering where he is.
  • He continues to complain about how he has the worst job in the world and dreams of the day he would finnaly be able to retire. "Doing business like this takes much more effort than doing your own business at home, and on top of that there’s the curse of traveling, worries about making train connections, bad and irregular food, contact with different people all the time so that you can never get to know anyone or become friendly with them. It can all go to Hell!” (Kafka 94)
  • Unfortunately for Gregor, his mom and sister attempt to wake him up to get ready for work. He struggles to get up and do his daily routine as he has been transformed. “Gregor, somebody called—it was his mother—it’s quarter to seven. Didn’t you want to go somewhere?” (Kafka 96)
  • I'm right here!
  • Gergor fails to arrive for work and the chief clerk calls Gregor's home to ask them what his problem was. “Gregor,” said his father now from the room to his left, “the chief clerk has come round and wants to know why you didn’t leave on the early train." (Kafka 100)
  • After some time has passed and Gregor still shows no sign of getting up, his mom starts to get nervous and asks for a doctor. " “You’ll have to go for the doctor straight away. Gregor is ill. Quick, get the doctor. Did you hear the way Gregor spoke just now?” (Kafka 103)
  • Finally, Gregor, after much effort and a few broken teeth, opens the door to him room. His family and chief clerk are very surprised to see how he changed during the course of a single night. "He was still occupied with this difficult movement, unable to pay attention to anything else, when he heard the chief clerk exclaim a loud “Oh!” which sounded like the soughing[4] of the wind. Now he also saw him." (Kafka 105)
