However, this does not seem true to most returning veterans. According to two short fictional stories “ Soldier’s Home” and “ A Perfect Day for Bananafish,” two protagonists’ lives after brutal wars explicitly demonstrate the idea that they are not only pathetic survivors from battles, but also victims of relentless wars through authors’ vivid depictions of each character and elaborate arrangement of settings.

The metamorphosis is both similar to and different from the fairy tale, Cinderella. In Chapter 2, after Gregor's father returns to home from work, Grete tells him that Gregor broke out. Because he misunderstands Grete and thinks Gregor attacked his wife, in the book on page 37, his dad filled his pockets with fruit and was throwing one apple after another” at Gregor brutally.

In the beginning of the novel, The metamorphosis, by Fran Kafka the tone is flat and calm due to the main character, Gregor Samsa, no caring about waking up in his bed which turned into a “monstrous verminous bug” (Kafka 3 ). With the author writing in this tone, the reader's mood consists of confusion and being very absurd with the fact of Gregor relaxed tone when he thinks “ What's happened to me”(3) . Gregor seems not to be freaking out about his bed changing into a bug but confused with the fact why it happened in the first place.
