What does nonsensical in line 204 mean? What is the effect when Kafka pairs nonsensical with hope? Which words in lines 206–220 have negative and positive connotations? How does Kafka use words with traditionally positive connotations to express negative
I'm sorry, I have no access to the numbered text you are working with. Please provide the lines in question, as they are integral to formulating an answer.
Kafka grants readers access to Gregor’s thoughts, but we only learn about other characters through what Gregor sees, hears, and infers. How does this perspective affect the reader’s understanding of the story?
I think that the reader is isolated from the outside world, just as Gregor is. We feel Gregor's emotions as well as his sense of disenfranchisement from his previous life.
The significance in being unable to fit under the couch means that Gregor is growing. He has no place to hide himself from the people who abhor his presence. His size exposes him.
