After studying Kafka's THE METAMORPHOSIS, students write their own absurdity poem and illustrate with clip art or original art. I even included my own absurd poem about being a hummingbird grading papers! This is always a favorite activity for the students--especially the artists in the group. Check out my animated PowerPoint for THE METAMORPHOSIS!
