Question

Who removes Gregor's body after his death?

A. The police
B. Gregor's sister
C. Gregor's father
D. The cleaning woman

1 Answer

  • The answer is D: the cleaning woman.

    In this story by the great writer, Franz Kafka, Gregor Samsa is turned into a horrible bug. This brings a lot of hardships, both for Gregor and his family.

    After Gregor dies, it is the cleaning woman who gets rid of the body, in the most characteristic of Kafka´s finales, turning his main character into a nuisance that needs to be rid of in the most possible impersonal way (Samsa was not even considered a man by the end of the story).
