The Metamorphosis

The Metamorphosis
Franz Kafka, adapted by Peter Kuper
Call Number
PN6727.K85 M48 2008
1st Floor Graphic Novel
Not Recommended
Book Review
This book adapts Franz Kafka’s classic a short comic. However, it lacks the depth and insight that the original story possesses, and while comics can be an excellent medium for the surreal, the art and presentation in Kuper’s adaptation falls short of doing Kafka’s story justice. Instead of being an interesting psychological surrealist exploration, it's just... boring and simplistic.
