Notes on Metamorphosis at MEME


Gregor Samsa woke up in the morning to find himself transformed into a gigantic insect, a cockroach.

Gregor contemplates upon giving up on life before his mystery begins. Spring is celebrating. Greta will initiate his extinction. Time will never stop counting. Is there an escape for nowadays Gregor? We all hide a Gregor inside. Gregor no matter how many times you wake up you will always rise as Gregor.
