The priest’s examination of the angel becomes evidence of a fraud: “Father Gonzaga went into the chicken coop and said good morning to him in Latin. The parish priest had his first suspicion of an imposter when he saw that he did not understand the language of God or know how to greet his ministers” (Marquez, 219). This demonstrates that the inability of the angel being able to speak in Latin makes the priest feel as though there is someone here that he does not want. Showing that society is starting to realize they do not want the angel here. While Marquez uses the angel’s inability to speak Latin to show that the priest is questioning the angel’s presence, Kafka uses Gregor’s inability to do anything to show the characters isolation from society.
