Paris, France is famous for being a location wherein one could indulge in every kind of sin, the more lascivious the better. This aspect of the city is often depicted in literature, but never as an exploration of that lifestyle, but instead as a comment on the true hollowness of such an existence. In the earliest half of the twentieth century, a growing number of people became dissatisfied with the world they had been living in following the First World War. These people became dissatisfied with the government, with their lives, and with the status quo. In the United States, women were abandoning their roles as wives and mothers in attempts to find an individual identity as a single human being. Men and women were finding themselves attracted to members of the same sex and, for the first time in American history, were unashamed to act on their feelings, although they would often have to keep their orientation a secret from the public world for fear of ostracism or violence.

Some of the areas with the highest densities of the Bush elephant is: Tanzania, South African, Kenya, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia. The African Bush elephant is terrestrial. The Bush elephant usually live in the grasslands, semi-deserts and the bush lands. They also clear out forest and turn them into more of grassland, by knocking down the trees. The climate that the Bush elephant normally lives in is dry and hot. Their thin hairs and ears help them stay cool. Another way that they stay cool is that their hides become more permeable in the heat. Scientists has performed research on 13 elephants (African and Asian), they measure the release of heat and moisture. What they have found was that their skin opens up at air temperatures as low at 10°C to 12°C, this is what allows them to perspire. Elephants are different than most mammals, that sweats through glands connected to pores, elephants only have pores between their toes. Elephants do not sweat (Phillips, 1992).

Peter Shaffer and Franz Kafka, the authors of Equus and Metamorphosis, reveal through their main characters’ struggles how society’s oppression causes a loss of identity. This oppression is caused by society’s obsession with what it believes to be normal and how society’s beliefs drive it to conform those who don’t fit its normal image.

Finally, this essay will reveal how the two authors use their characters to drain the protagonist’s identity to show society’s desire to conform.
