Forlorn, by Alex

The desiccated field, stripped of color.
The Xanthotic reign induced.
Something appears to have deserted me.

On Metamorphosis and Immaturity, by Alex

I had recently read "The Metamorphosis" by Franz Kafka as an Honors English 2 assignment, and appreciated it. However, it occurs to me that I know many that did not. Most of my classmates that have read it disliked it greatly. This has led to my conclusion that A) they do not understand its symbolism and underlying existentialism, or B) they are silly, silly people. I am sure one or both is true for each. I myself can appreciate the philosophy involved, as I am a fancier and vagrant of cogitative theories. Thus I enjoy it, and similarly recommend it to all, as well as a lecture on it -- a gateway to comprehension.
