Themes in Gregor

Do people control their fates or does an outside influence? The prophecies of Bartholomew of Sandwich foretold things like the death of Luxa's parents. Could anything have prevented their deaths? Can any prophecy be changed? How does (if at all) self-fulfilling prophecy apply?

Many stories focus on leaving home and finding your way back (The Odyssey). Gregor‘s goal was to get back home to his family as was his father’s. What does home mean to Gregor and his father? What does it mean to the Underlanders? What does it mean to you?
