Daisy comes over with a basket of food. We could organize debates with professors and writers and lawyers, blue-stockings and artists and people and ordinary men in the street as well-it would be very interesting and instructive. At the office, sugene argument has broken out between the sensitive and logical Dudard and the violent, temperamental Botard; Who does not believe a rhinoceros could actually appear in France despite all the claims by eyewitnesses.

The logician gives the example of: The experience of the Occupation was a deeply psychologically disorienting one for the French as what was once familiar and safe become strange and threatening. Three weeks later, that rinlceronte would become a Nazi.


In interwar Romania, Jews played much the same role as Greeks and Armenians did in the Ottoman Empire and the ethnic Chinese minorities do in modern Malaysia and Indonesia, namely a commercially successful minority much resented for their success.

Despite seeing the rhinoceroses with his own eyes, Botard convinces himself that rhinoceritis is all a gigantic capitalist plot, dismissing rhinoceritis as an “infamous plot” and “propaganda”.
