Write a one (1.5) page paperwith clearly defined terms, topic, and developed thesis sentence in which you consider yourself to be one of the characters in Metamorphosis, identifying more with Gregor (feeling lowly and helpless), Grete (making the best of a bad situation and growing in the process), or the cleaning woman (matter-of-fact and contemptuous toward Gregor). Describe how you would deal with the situation as one of those characters.
