Kafka’s unique body of writing is considered amongst the most influential in Western literature. The word “Kafkaesque” has come into common use to denote mundane yet absurd and surreal circumstances of the kind commonly found in Kafka’s work.

His most famous pieces of writing include this short story Die Verwandlung (The Metamorphosis), first published in 1915.
