Respond to this to this post from Student:

 I agree with the assertion that even after Gregor’s transformation, he is more humane and sensitive than his family. After Gregor’s transformation he is left in isolation as his family can no longer communicate with him or relate to his insect form. This isolation allows Gregor the time to analyze the effect his new identity has on his loved ones. Gregor longs for his mother but also wishes to protect her from the horror that he has become. This demonstrates that even as an insect, Gregor is capable of more sensitivity than his human family. While Gregor spares his sister, who is his sole caretaker for much of the story, by hiding under a blanket, she nor his mother hide their shock when they catch a glimpse of his insect body. His father’s attempts to kill him by hurling an apple towards him are also further evidence of a lack of sensitivity from his family. Despite their lack of humanity, Gregor continues to think positively of his family and even sympathize with them. As Gregor is succumbing to his life ending injuries, he remembers his family fondly and does not hold any resentment towards them for the way they treated him. After his death, his family is informed by the cleaning woman that his body has been taken care of. In his father’s final demonstration of insensitivity, he dismisses the woman and shows no interest in what has been done with Gregor’s corpse.
