Based on "Good readers and good writers: Franz Kafka: The Metamorphosis," from Nabokov's _Lectures on Literature_, vol. 1, 1980.
Peter Medak's short television film, Nabokov on Kafka, is a dramatisation of Nabokov's lectures on Franz Kafka's The Metamorphosis. The part of Nabokov is played by Christopher Plummer.
Vladimir Nabokov, widely considered one of the world's greatest writers for such works as _Lolita_, was also a remarkable professor at Cornell University. Here, Plummer portrays the witty Nabokov, providing an entertaining and insightful lecture upon "Metamorphosis," Kafka's bizarre story about a man who wakes up one morning to discover he has turned into a giant bug beetle.
