One morning, when Gregor Samsa woke from troubled dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a horrible vermin. He lay on his armour-like back, and if he lifted his head a little he could see his brown belly, slightly domed and divided by arches into stiff sections. The bedding was hardly able to cover it and seemed ready to slide off any moment. His many legs, pitifully thin compared with the size of the rest of him, waved about helplessly as he looked.

ALS Gregor Samsa eines Morgens aus unruhigen Traeumen erwachte, fand er sich in seinem Bett zu einem ungeheuren Ungeziefer verwandelt. Er lag auf seinem panzerartig harten Ruecken und sah, wenn er den Kopf ein wenig hob, seinen gewoelbten, braunen, von bogenfoermigen Versteifungen geteilten Bauch, auf dessen Hoehe sich die Bettdecke, zum gaenzlichen Niedergleiten bereit, kaum noch erhalten konnte. Seine vielen, im Vergleich zu seinem sonstigen Umfang klaeglich duennen Beine flimmerten ihm hilflos vor den Augen.
