Particularly, in The Metamorphosis, the power simply shifts from one person to another. As previously discussed, Gregor became the breadwinner of the family after his father’s business crashed, illustrating the transfer of power from Mr. Samsa to Gregor. After Gregor’s incapacitating transformation, Grete begins to gain authority in the house. She takes on the job of feeding Gregor, a task that even his mother is afraid to do. Additionally, Grete removes furniture from Gregor’s room, which on the surface may seem like a benevolent gesture to allow Gregor to move more freely.
The men on the ranch travel by themselves and have no real connections to each other. Curley's wife spends her days wandering around the ranch, hoping someone will be open to having a conversation with. Crooks is completely isolate and has to live in a small room next to the barn because he has a different skin tone compared to all the ranch workers. Lastly, Candy feels lonely and isolated since he is separated from the other men after losing his hand and losing his dog. I think one of the morals of the story is that everyone needs someone to talk to in order to survive.
Gregor now realizes his father shows no sympathy towards Gregor and instead punishes him for something he has no control over. Gregor began to resent his father for throwing household items at him, squashing him like a bug. Even his beloved sister Grete began irritating Gregor by removing all of his belonging from his room, leaving him with nothing. The cruelty performed on Gregor by his own family sends him into a dark pit of despair. With nothing to live for he began to slowly end his life, making one final sacrifice for the ones he loves

As he is walking around the camp, he is trying to find his father, but at the same time he is wishing he didn’t, “‘Don’t let me find him! If only I could get rid of this dead weight, so that I could use all my strength to struggle for my own survival, and only worry about myself,’ I immediately felt ashamed of myself, ashamed forever,” (Wiesel, 111).

Unfortunately, other may say different that silence has nothing to do with the husband torturing himself just to be able to please his wife and put up with her disrespectful behavior. For example, “she says another thing about him, and then another, and right after the third one I locked myself in the bathroom, because I couldn’t rage about this anymore” (154). It shows that in his mind fear, pride and the thought of feeling rejection from his wife cause him to live in torment. From the point of view of the author, Butler, he called the story a “Jealous Husband Returns in Form of Parrot”. Jealousy is always feeling suspicion, or fear of being displaced by a rival.
Additionally, Darry is going to have to work even harder in his two jobs to keep his family together. Not only him, but everybody in the family is going to have to work harder and help each other out.
