The food came out [was taken out] again just as it went in. Before the date of the intended marriage, he took up with yet another woman. His job seems frustrating, and un-fulfilling. Furthermore, the removal of the furniture acts as a detonation of his alienation as Gregor looses loses his identity.
He turns to the clock and sees that he has overslept and missed his train to work. The rest of the first paragraph offers material of interest to those taxonomically inclined to determine what type of insect Gregor has become.
It was a time of transition and transformation. Suspecting that Gregor might be a malingerer, or, still worse, that he was about to make off with some company funds, he displays his art of humiliating his inferiors before the embarrassed family of his employee.

He tries to get out of bed but is incapable of moving his body. At last he succeeds in dropping down on the floor. The story is at times comic, sometimes horrifyingand quite often heartbreaking. He settles himself under a couch and listens to the quiet apartment.
Father-Son Antagonism Life at home, according to the story, is no paradise either.
His only desire is to help his family, which makes him solely focused on attaining sufficient revenue. In subsequent years, commentators have generally taken for granted the quality and importance of the story, and have focused on trying to interpret it.
He sees his family wearing down as a result of his transformation and their new poverty. Franz Kafka is the twentieth century’s valedictory ghost. In two incomplete yet incommensurable novels, “The Trial” and “The Castle,” he submits, as lingering spirits will, a ghastly.
