Homework Help: Literature - The Metamorphosis

Posted by Jazz on Tuesday, June 8, 2010 at 4:07pm.

The Metamorphosis is a novel by Franz Kafka which has lots of religious symbolism.
For example, when an apple is thrown at Gregor and embedded in his skin. I heard that in religious symbolism, apple terms for sin. What, however, is the significance when the apple rots away? Does the sin rot away? That does not really make sense.

What I also don't get is what actually the sin is that
Gregor commits....
Can someone who read the novel help me
understand... please.....
