While reading The Metamorphosis, I came across several instances that suggest Gregor is full of this castration anxiety. Some scenes can also be interpreted as a symbolic representation of his father actually going through with Gregor’s castration, in fear of Gregor winning over his mother. For example, when Gregor’s father throws apples and other fruits at Gregor: “Another one however, immediately following it, hit squarely and lodged in his back; Gregor wanted to drag himself away, as if he could remove the surprising, the incredible pain by changing his position; but he felt as if nailed to the spot and spread himself out, all his senses in confusion.
Say-I’ll give you the core of my apple.’ ‘Well, here-No, ben, now don’t. I’m afeard-’ ‘I’ll give you all of it!’ Tom gave up the brush with reluctance in his face, but alacrity in his heart.” (Twain 19)

Seeking redemption can be a powerful motivating force behind one’s actions. If a person is looking to be redeemed, the process in which they attempt to find redemption can change them as a person and drive them to do things they never previously would have.
