The short story sets the scene in Tangier, nowadays, where the hero Gregor Samsa, knows the same family and professional setbacks as those depicted in Kafka: become the only breadwinner, following the brutal and unexplained forfeiture of his father, he exercises two professions. Totally disillusioned, he is entirely dependent, however married, but... "under the control" of his father, his mother, his sister and his wife, who all live together.
This fictional and literally haunting story features protagonists of the Muslim faith in North Africa. The author takes care to depict for us the customs of the Moroccan High Atlas, to the port of Tangier, a former Spanish colony. Everything is there! The colors, sounds, language, traditional prayer, weave the canvas of a tale, already approached by Kafka, but from another angle!
The hero, so proud to belong to the noble lineage of a Prophet, and pure Berber, nevertheless finds himself totally submissive and powerless to react, faced with the hostility shown by his father especially.
From his metamorphosis into a repulsive insect, he identifies himself so much with the animal, that he adopts his behavior and his thoughts... of an insect!
As in Kafka's novel, here the same pernicious workings of society take shape - attacking a model employee for a simple delay - The true nature of each of the actors in the book is revealed, crescendo, in an incredible way! Beneath polished appearances, each carefully conceals the engine that slyly drives them! I loved!
It is after having put on this mask, which the beast represents, that Gregor Samsa, paradoxically, frees himself! He can, at last, be Himself, under the guise of repugnant ugliness.
The epilogue thunders like a roar of thunder!
Very clever, the one who will get out of there, unscathed!
Read it! Unforgettable modern version of Metamorphosis! ( )
