Mrs. Samsa is the sympathetic yin to Mr. Samsa's domineering yang. She's constantly proclaiming her maternal love for her poor, poor son Gregor – she even throws herself on Mr. Samsa to beg for Gregor's life.

Her hysterical reaction to Gregor suggests that she may be carried away more by the idea of maternal love than its gross reality.
