Eugène Ionseco’s parabolic drama Rhinoceros (1959) follows everyman Bérenger as his community is overrun with “rhinoceritis.” As he watches the world change around him, Bérenger must find inspiration and take control of his life. Ionesco’s breakneck masterpiece is an indictment of complacency, extremism, and mob mentality, as well as an invitation to individual action in the face of overwhelming circumstances.
