NEW EASY READER EBOOK: La metamorfosi, -25%

Easy Italian readers - La metamorfosi - cover image

The newest title in our ‘World Literature‘ series of Italian easy reader ebooks is Franza Kafka’s unsettling ‘La metamorfosi‘, which we published yesterday.

We already had ‘easy reader’ ebook versions of ‘I racconti di Canterbury‘ and ‘Don Chisciotte della Mancia’, plus six Italian literature ‘easy reader’ ebooks.

La metamorfosi‘ is B2/C1-level, which means upper-intermediate/advanced.

Until Sunday 21st August it’s discounted 25% compared to the usual ‘easy reader’ price, so just £5.99 rather than £7.99.

What’s this one about, then?

Scritto nel 1912, La metamorfosi è uno dei testi più noti dello scrittore, in cui si descrivono le vicende di un uomo, Gregorio Samsa, che di mestiere fa il commesso viaggiatore, e che una mattina si sveglia e scopre di essersi trasformato in un enorme scarafaggio.

Kafka fu un autore allegorico, perché rappresentava una vicenda per “dire altro”; ha voluto forse rappresentare la solitudine e il senso di diversità dell’ebreo nella Mitteleuropa,la propria estraneità alla sua famiglia, il senso di colpa e l’impotenza umana del singolo di fronte al mondo e alla sua burocrazia. La maggior parte delle sue opere, come ‘La metamorfosi’, ‘Il processo’ e ‘Il castello’, sono piene di temi di alienazione, brutalità fisica e psicologica, e conflittualità genitori-figli.

Cheerful stuff indeed, but it’s a twentieth century classic and well worth a look! Find out more about ‘La metamorfosi‘ in our online shop. Check out the Free Sample Chapter (.pdf), to verify the length, level and format of the ebook.
