The conversion, a work inseparably with the person the Kafka is connected, is a surreale narration over cruelties and Ausgrenzungen in the society and the family to away-come in addition, over ways over it and to survive the metaphorically described Psychosen. Gregor Samsa, a traveler salesman is changed "in its bed to tremendous vermin". In its new feature it frightens all persons with whom it as outstanding businessman and family member in regulated social contact was before located. Only its sister supplies it compassionful also like an animal food. Gregor tries to maintain a certain measure of normality despite its condition, but its environment treats him more and more like vermin, will empty space its room, detaches its pictures, takes to it all human one which it still surrounded. At the same time it loses each confidence and each affection. Its father throws Gregor with apples as it falsely believes to Gregor greiffe his nut/mother on. One of these apples remains in its back putting and leads after a painful night to Gregors death, which is relieved taken up by the whole family. Nachddem the bestialische corpse is eliminated undertakes the family a trip into the city around future plans to discuss, which become now again possible. Numerous symbols underline the action of the narration. The room Gregors is the center of the house (all rooms lead to Gregors room); Each person is assigned a door (3 doors, 3 persons); The window of its room symbolizes the external world; a picture of a lady with fur hat the one erotisches experience Gregors; the sun at the end of history underlines the future planning of history after the ' positive ' event of death Gregors. If one believes max of Brod's Kafka Biographie, then ' the conversion ' is also the history of the young Kafka, which feels as a writer as parasite and discharging the society and its family.
