Transcript

I have a love/hate relationship with this story. Perhaps I can relate to it more closely than I'd like to admit.

One morning Gregor awakens to find himself transformed into a hideous insect-like creature. His family is bewildered at first, but they do try to take care of him. Eventually he becomes too much of a burden to them. Nothing more than an ugly monster, a nuisance to the family. When Gregor learns of this, he retreats to a solitary death.

Up until his transformation Gregor had been supporting the family. Now that he was no longer useful he was a burden to them. They were relieved when he died.



I, too, have been bred to serve a purpose. Once that purpose accomplished, I too would have been cast aside.

But I refuse to shrivel up and die in solitude.

I refuse to let myself become a hideous monster.

You must have felt the same way too, Albert.

私は、この醜悪な物語を深く愛し憎んでいる。
これは、兄妹にまつわる死の刻印だ。

物語は、主人公グレーゴル・ザムザが、
ある朝、目覚めると巨大で醜い毒虫に
変身していたことからはじまる。

家族は、突如姿を変えた彼に
戸惑いつつもはじめは守ろうとするのだが、
毒虫に変身した彼を理解することは出来ず、
やがて見捨てられていく。



ついに献身的であった妹・グレーテにすらも
見捨てられた時、その命運は尽き、
やがて兄・グレーゴルは独り静かに死を迎える。

私は、グレーテのように、兄弟を見捨てはしない。
血を分けた兄弟と命運を共にする。

私は、グレーゴルのように醜い毒虫に変身はしない。
創造主にふさわしい姿へと生まれ変わる。
