The Wy he loved was the way he wrote

             "The way he lived is what he wrote"
             "The tremendous world I have inside my head. But how free myself and free it without being torn to pieces. And a thousand times rather be torn to pieces than retain it in me or bury it. That, indeed, is why I am here, that is quite clear to me."

Mr. Samsa, just as Hermann Kafka, represents the bad giant, the man whose violence overpowers any kind of sympathy he might have for his unfortunate son. Even though Hermann Kafka never physically abused his son, he severly punished him at times and this is why young Kafka was so afraid of his "huge fat
