    Rhinoc ros Rhinoceros, Eug ne IonescoRhinoceros is a play by Eug ne Ionesco, written in 1959 The play was included in Martin Esslin s study of post war avant garde drama, The Theatre of the Absurd, although scholars have also rejected this label as too interpretatively narrow Over the course of three acts, the inhabitants of a small, provincial French town turn into rhinoceroses ultimately the only human who does not succumb to this mass metamorphosis is the central character, B renger, a flustered every man figure who is initially criticized in the play for his drinking, tardiness, and slovenly lifestyle and then, later, for his increasing paranoia and obsession with the rhinoceroses The play is often read as a response and criticism to the sudden upsurge of Fascism and Nazism during the events preceding World War II, and explores the themes of conformity, culture, fascism, responsibility, logic, mass movements, mob mentality, philosophy and morality 2012 1345 256 1951 1952 1954 1957 1960 1962 1966 1972

    One of the best plays ever on the individual human s stand against mass propaganda and oppressive societies Do we have another outbreak of Rhinoceritis coming in the world I read Rhinoceros in French many years ago and had a vague memory of being moved by it As I reread it in English to reflect on whether or not it could be used for a teaching unit on totalitarian societies, I was completely shaken by the horrific message Fighting conformity and the pressure of the supposedly inevitable is shockingly familiar to me, and I don t have to refer to the political nightmares of the 20th century to see the main character s dilemma B renger witnesses the sudden transformation of a human into a rhinoceros In the beginning, everybody is shocked by it, and people try to find rational explanations for individuals failure to stay human But the rhinoceros metamorphosis gets and common, and affects people who are educated, well behaved, and express common sense in their daily life How can this be explained In the end, the pressure to transform into a brutal animal, following instincts rather than critical thinking, is so strong, B renger finds himself completely alone in his resistance Even the perception of beauty and ugliness has changed, and he exclaims Ce sont eux qui sont beaux J ai eu tort Oh Comme je voudrais tre comme eux Je n ai pas de corne, h las Que c est laid, un front plat In his frustration, he yells Malheur celui qui veut conserver sa originalit But then he resigns himself to his identity, different from all others, and accepts the consequence of his humanity His choice, in the end, to stay human no matter what, is the bravest and loneliest act imaginable Contre tout le monde, je me d fendrai Je suis le dernier homme, je le resterai jusqu au bout je ne capitule pas Great read Hard to digest.

    A libertarian manifesto, of sorts not in the strictly political sense, or in the philosophical sense of free will versus determinism, but in the broader sense of one who values personal liberty and freedom above all else in or out of the political arena I just saw a fantastic rendering of this play put on by the theater troupe at the high school where my wife teaches I wasn t certain that they could pull off a play that demands such a high level of skill from its actors and director, but they did it, and they did it well The lead actor, playing the part of Berenger, brilliantly portrayed the transformation of Berenger from a waffling, unsure drunk to the morally certain, but crushingly alone last man standing, after the inhabitants of his town slowly choose to turn into rhinoceroses.Afterwards, having been near the edges of the audience and having had one of the rhinoceroses brush up against me they wander around among the audience for much of the play , I remarked to my wife that I felt like the absurdist and strongly existentialist play was a sort of audience participation episode of the Twilight Zone And since TZ is my favorite television show of all time, that was the highest compliment I could give it Reading the play may not lend the same intensity, as this was written for the stage, not for the page as my daughter so frequently characterized Shakespeare when she was a child But the blueprint is there, and a well directed group of actors can really plunge the audience into the middle of the angst.The central theme running throughout is that of individualism versus conformity Though the play is frequently cited as being anti Nazi, Ionesco says Rhinoceros is certainly an anti Nazi play, yet it is also and mainly an attack on collective hysteria and the epidemics that lurk beneath the surface of reason and ideas but are none the less serious collective diseases passed off as ideologies The play runs far deeper than a simple invective against one group Rather, it questions all groups and the human need to belong vis a vis the need for human individuation Ionesco is careful to make Berenger a complex character, who struggles with the decision of whether or not to become a rhinoceros, thus avoiding a pedantic forcing of the audience to hate the rhinoceroses This is not a propaganda piece that ignores the psychological subtleties behind such a difficult choice The situations portrayed pull forth feelings of tolerance, possibly even sympathy, for those who succumb to the allure of the crowd One must ask, what would I do in this situation, given all that is presented to me The question of who the rhinoceroses are is completely irrelevant People always wish me to spell out whether I mean the rhinos to be fascists or communists Rhinoceritis is not an illness of the Right or the Left it cannot be contained within geo political borders Nor is it characteristic of a social class It is the malady of conformity which knows no bounds, no boundaries.There are no easy answers Tolerate the crowd, accept them, become one of them and accept their sociality, or resist them, become intolerant, and remain staunchly individual, and alone Before you answer, think about it Read or see this play, then think about it This isn t a decision you ll want to make in haste.
