En La metamorfosis conviven con una sorprendente ambig edad lo cotidiano y lo sobrenatural lo l gico y lo absurdo En estas oscilaciones perpetuas reside la maestr a de Kafka Por eso lo nico que preocupa a Gregor en la singular aventura de su transformaci n es que no podr ir al trabajo y le causar fastidio a su jefe Su familia horrorizada y avergonzada de l intentar darle la mejor vida posible acorde a su nuevo estado Al menos al principio .
