Vladimir Nabokov, widely considered to be one of the world's great writers, was also a remarkable professor at Cornell University. Provides an insight to "The metamorphosis," Kafka's perplexing story about a man who wakes one morning to discover that he has turned into a beetle. One of the most widely read and studied short stories of all time, Kafka's greatest work is humorously and intensely brought to life.

The actor, Christopher Plummer, plausibly resembles the professor, Nabokov. The bone I have to pick is the subject lectured upon: the short story is the most discussed work, bar none, of Kafka. I consider it only of middling quality. To put it in BEATLEy terms: it is as if LET IT BE or YESTERDAY were nearly exclusively the preoccupied- for- discussion-works of the Beatles. Choose one? OK, other words, you'll find nothing new about Kafka, here. I suggest, then, you read more extensively from his catalog of fiction. It is most certainly worth doing, trust me, I know.
