La Métamorphose by Franz Kafka

By Franz Kafka

« Lorsque Gregor Samsa s'éveilla un matin au sortir de rêves agités, il se retrouva dans son lit changé en un énorme cancrelat. [...] "Que m'est-il arrivé ?" pensa-t-il. Ce n'était pas un rêve. [...] "Et si je continuais un peu à dormir et oubliais toutes ces bêtises", pensa-t-il, mais cela était tout à fait irréalisable, vehicle il avait coutume de dormir sur le côté droit et il lui était very unlikely, dans son état actuel, de se mettre dans cette place. Il avait beau se jeter de toutes ses forces sur le côté droit, il rebondissait sans cesse sur le dos. »
