The Tell-Tale Heart,The Black Cat, Cask of Amontillado to The Metamorphosis by Mr. Kafka
Write an essay discussing the fact that Gregor is trapped in ways similar to the characters in the Poe stories. Discuss elements of family, work, society, and mental state that add to the trapped feeling that all these characters experience. Don’t write in vague generalities. Write about concrete things that happen in the stories that feed your imagination and that are ripe for comparison in these various “nightmare” worlds. You are basically also discussing how life itself is sometimes like being trapped in a nightmare, something all these pieces suggest.
