                Abstract

                The researcher used Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis because the story in that novel contained the concept of existentialism, namely nothingness which was experienced by the main character, Gregor. The objectives of this research were for describing the characterization of Gregor in that novel, and analyzing Gregor’s representation of nothingness in that novel. In this research, the researcher used the descriptive qualitative to analyze the data which was depend on the statements of the problem. On the other hands, the researcher also used two data resources; they were library and internet resources. From this research, the researcher found Gregor’s characterization which told about the way of understanding about his characteristics. Those were negative characteristics which were represented through direct and indirect method. Moreover, the researcher found Gregor’s nothingness or non-being because he had negative characteristics in himself. As long as he experienced that position, he was incapable to conduct the job. Instead, he refused his existence, and he preferred to live by locking himself in his room, exactly under the mattress. Thus, his parents and his sister could not meet and find him anytime to make him free as human being. Keywords: Existentialism, Nothingness, The Metamorphosis, Characteristic, Characterization.
