“The Metamorphosis” is a story about an apocalypse. This is not the end of the world necessarily as we see it occur in “By the Waters Of Babylon,” where cities lie in ruins. But remember that apocalypse means “a lifting of the veil or revelation.” For Gregor, turning into a bug is not just a metamorphosis but a sort of apocalypse, the catalyst that reveals an ugly truth to him. After he had wrapped up so much of his identity in caring for and providing for his family, they ultimately rejected him in his time of need.
