      Books that you would reccomned to Gregor Samsa from The Metamorphosis to read?

      I need to know some books that Gregor Samsa from The Metamorphosis by Fraz Kafka would enjoy and possibly an explanation of them. They need to be from the 1920s or earlier. This is part of a project that I am needing to do, but I am having a writer's block on the subject and can't think of any of them except for Das Kapital by Marx. Any suggestions are welcome, thanks

      Weird assignment...
      maybe Ulysses by James Joyce
      Les Chants de Maldoror by Comte de Lautréamont
      Nadja by Andre Breton
      Idk man just try some surrealist/absurdist authors

      Also Das Kapital would be a good choice as well. Gregor turning into a bug (IMO) is an expression of his alienation which you can tie into Marx's theory of alienation in his critique of capitalism.

      Anything by H.L. Mencken to bring out his cynical side.
      The worst thing that can happen to a good cause is, not to be skillfully attacked, but to be ineptly defended. - Frédéric Bastiat
      I try to deny myself any illusions or delusions, and I think that this perhaps entitles me to try and deny the same to others, at least as long as they refuse to keep their fantasies to themselves. - Christopher Hitchens
