Vladimir Nabokov admired Franz Kafka’s novella, “The Metamorphosis.” Hence the lecture that Nabokov dedicated to the work here. But he also saw some small ways to improve the story, or at least the English translation of it. Below, we have some edits that Nabokov penned himself. And, just as an fyi, you can download a free audio version of Kafka’s story from our Free Audio Books collection.
