Top 10 tales of metamorphosis

Thomas Bloor named a "top ten tales of metamorphosis" list for the Guardian.

Number One on the list:
Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka

An obvious place to start. A man wakes up one morning to find he's changed into a giant beetle. The transformation has already taken place when the story opens and Kafka offers no explanation as to why or how this has occurred. Instead he focuses on the trials of family life when you've become an enormous insect overnight. Needless to say, it ends in tragedy.
Read the entire list.
