Arts & Entertainment "Beauty in art is often nothing but ugliness subdued." The written word, the spoken word, performance art, visual art. What is "Art?" From television advertising to opera, comic books to classic literature, vacation snapshots to the Sistine Chapel Frescoes; we are exposed to art every day. What is art to you?

Is Kafka's Metamorphosis just a load of pants?

*contains spoilers*

'When Gregor Samsa woke up one morning from uneasy dreams, he found himself changed in his bed into a monstrous insect'

So begins Kafka's famous novella which I just finished reading.

So Gregor the cockroach feels embarrassed at his condition, then later angry then later sad. His family feel embarrassed then angry then ashamed. Gregor falls into depression then dies alone in his room. Then the family feel a bit happier. The end.

WTF?

Try reading "Naked Lunch" by William S Burrows, puts Kafka into the shade for weirdness.

Haven't we all had mornings like this? Move along, nothing to see here.

I didn't make past the first chapter of The Greatest Novel in the English Language. James Joyce can stick his Ulysses where the sun don't shine, as far as I'm concerned.

PS - agree about Kafka.

^^ Got to page five before confining Ulysses to the bin.
What a load of pretentious drivel that book is.
