CORPS FANTASME ET SOCIETE DANS LA METAMORPHOSE DE FRANZ KAFKA

Posted On Dec 11 2017 by

The Metamorphosis provides one the most disconcerting examples of Franz Kafka’s vision of the human existence. For Kafka, the human condition is absurd and man fully feels the existential misfortune in the labyrinth of a reality that escapes him.
