Ep. 2.4 — Kafka's Metamorphosis Historical Context: Absurd Stories from 1915
In this episode we look at three absurd stories that happened in 1915, the year The Metamorphosis was first published. There’s the surprise box office smash of 1915 that really will surprise you, 20th-century alchemical schemes, the physics of grapefruits, and WWI because how can we not? These incredible anecdotes really did happen in 1915, and form part of Kafka’s Metamorphosis historical context.
