Susan Bernofsky Translation. David Cronenberg Introduction.
Since no one word in English fits well enough in all the contexts Kafka presents, I decided to translate the word in many different ways; but note when you are reading all these synonyms that you are watching a motif unfold. Finally Gregor has only himself to blame for the wretchedness of his situation, since he has willingly accepted wretchedness as it was thrust upon him.

Gregor Samsa, giant bug, is a cartoon of the subaltern, a human being turned inside out. Like Willy Loman, Gregor is a suicide, though of a different sort: he dies a hunger artist, perishing of starvation because nothing tastes good to him anymore.

I imagine Kafka laughing uproariously when reading the story to his friends. And although they are described as poor, they are never too hard up to retain the services of at least one domestic servant.
One last translation problem in the story is the title itself. As a title for this rich, complex story, it strikes me as the most luminous, suggestive choice. It's a letter that comes more than a century too late, but it's finally been delivered.

That, in a quiet and bookish way, is some kind of small act of hope. Franz Kafka was born of Jewish parents in Prague. Several of his story collections were published in his lifetime and his novels, The Trial , The Castle , and Amerika , were published posthumously by his editor Max Brod.
