Book summary

In Rhinoceros, as in his earlier plays, Ionesco startles audiences with a world that invariably erupts in explosive laughter and nightmare anxiety. A rhinoceros suddenly appears in a small town, tramping through its peaceful streets. Soon there are two, then three, until the “movement is universal: a transformation of average citizens into beasts, as they learn to move with the times. Finally, only one man remains. “Im the last man left, and Im staying that way until the end. Im not capitulating!

Rhinoceros is a commentary on the absurdity of the human condition made tolerable only by self-delusion. It shows us the struggle of the individual to maintain integrity and identity alone in a world where all others have succumbed to the “beauty of brute force, natural energy, and mindlessness.
