the beginning of ‘Equus’ one considers the character of Martin Dysart to be normal as he rarely strays outside of societies boundaries. However, as we move through the play one discovers there is much more to Martin Dysart than once thought. In reality the themes dealt with in ‘Equus’ challenges our own sense of what is normal. They are as equally as shocking to Dysart, yet made justifiable by Alan Strang’s worship for Equus, the god of horses. This is why ‘Peter Shaffer’ uses ‘Equus’ as a sort of device…
The play Equus is about a young boy who viciously blinds six horses with a metal spike in a stable and the psychiatrist, Martin Dysart, who investigates the boy’s mental state. It is a very complex, multileveled story, with many relationships effecting Allen’s (the stabber) behavior.
The relationship between Alan and Equus is a very complex one. His worship for the horse comes from his mother’s beliefs in God. She is very religious and pushes religion on Alan. His father was the…
some modern equines are born with 'side toes' although this is rare. The first actual 'equus' were very small 13.2 hands tall (or less than pony size), with a "rigid spine, long neck, long legs, fused leg bones with no rotation, long nose, flexible muzzle, deep jaw," a larger brain and the same straight, cement-lined crested teeth with high crowns horses have today (Hunt 1994).
As natural vegetarians, equus is classified as a 'prey' species. Living in a herd and consuming grass are characteristic…
In Peter Shaffer's Equus, A psychiatrist, Martin Dysart, is conducting
an investigation on Alan Strang. He is learning, through his
investigation of Alan's horrific crime, about what it really means to
make someone "normal" and what a psychiatrist really does.
It is the job of Dysart to find the motive of Alan's actions, but he
is not prepared for what he learns. After meeting Alan, Dysart has a
dream. This dream is of a ritual sacrifice in Greece. Dysart's passion
lies in Greece. He has…
horses from very early times and it seems that chariot racing was the preferred form of competition and maybe even the foundation of the Olympic Games.
The earliest known direct ancestor of Equus or the horse, the eohippus, lived approximately 50 million years ago in both the Old and New Worlds. Equus originally evolved in North America about three million years ago, spreading to all continents except Australia. Horses disappeared from the Americas for unknown reasons about 10,000 years ago,…
In both Equus and Amadeus Shaffer shows insanity in his characters. He does this not only to stress the characters feelings and state of mind of which they are in. Also, he attempts to cast a blanket over the reader; it gives the reader the feeling that Shaffer designed the characters to express and reflect the beauty in insanity and to convey the ugliness on normality.
“Madness, if not out rightly divine, is at best preferable to the 20th century’s ruthless and uninspired sanity, is in this play…
numbers. It is possible that some communities have adapted resistibility to the disease (Zukerman, 2010). Moreover, a resurrection of sorts (albeit human assisted) has been possible with some extinct species such as the much publicised Quagga. The equus quagga quagga is now known to be a subspecies of Burchell's Zebra, and a selective breeding program has meant that creatures almost identical to the extinct quagga can now be seen nibbling the grasses on Table Mountain near Cape Town, South Africa…
Equus is as complex as the human mind. Exploring psychological questions such as what does it mean to be normal, and should individuality be sacrificed for the sake of normality? Whilst propelling a mystery, crime story, and a psychological thriller, Peter Shaffer’s Equus examines the minds of a young stable boy who has blinded several horses and the aging psychiatrist asked to “cure” him. But would a “cure” really normalize the teenager?
A seventeen year old boy, Alan is brought to a psychiatric…
Personal judgment in Peter Shaffer’s Equus and Albert Camus’ The Stranger, though internal in the first and external in the latter, mirrors society’s judgment of those who differ from the norm. The two postmodernist authors both use judgment as a tool to promote the postmodern idea that society oppresses and criticizes people who are not like everyone else. Camus and Shaffer place specific motifs and elements into their novels in order to push the idea of societal judgment on the reader. However…
(Hunt, 2). “Paleontologist Michael Voorhies… characterizes the evolution of horses as more like a bush than a tree, with starts and stops and jumps in the development of genetic traits” (“Wild Horses: Equus Family Tree” 1). This statement is demonstrated in Chart 1 taken from “Wild Horses: Equus Family Tree”.
Between thirty-four and fifty-five million years ago, horses began their history on the North American continent. This occurred in the early to mid-Eocene epoch of the Tertiary period. The…
insignificance presented is accidental. Both Peter Shaffer’s Equus and Albert Camus’ The Stranger approach different ways in presenting the truths of Alan Strang and Meursault to the audience/jury, but one thing remains clear; intentional or unintentional manipulation of these characters leads to the eternal distrust of the reliability of their presenters, Martin Dysart and the members of the law.
Through Dysart’s self-diagnosis given throughout Equus, Shaffer directly conflicts with where focus of the…

In the play Equus worship and passion are seen in many contrasting
lights. In the example of Alan, the boy in the centre of the play,
worship and passion are the same thing. What he is devoted to inspires
excitement in him, in this case the God Equus. With his parents, it is
the same, but in different ways of worship. Alan’s mother is a devout
Catholic, and also has worship with a passion, but she is so devoted
to this single cause she is unable to experience passion for anything
Shaffer's play, Equus. Passion of this amount, when expressed, is usually known as insanity, or madness.
When first introduced to Shaffer's boy character, Alan Strang, the reader assumes automatically that he is mad, there is no other reason for his actions. Why else would one blind six horses in the middle of the night, in an apparent fit of rage? However, after reading more, one sees that he didn't actually do it during a random outburst. He did it because of his love of the horse god, Equus, and out…
“Lab Assignment #2 (Horse Evolution)”
Through fossil records from Hyracotherium to Mesohippus to Merychippus to Pleshippus to the Equus, one can see the development of dentition, limbs and skull based on the environment that the horses adapted to with time. Environmental changes from the Eocene to the Holocene brought about natural selection as the horses’ initial characteristics could not adapt. In order to survive, horses evolved traits such as stronger limbs, tougher teeth and others that best…

either. This is shown when the both Mr. and Mr. Kumar are present together at the zoo, “Mr. Kumar said, “Equus burchelli bohemi.” Mr. Kumar said, “Allahu akbar.” I [Pi] said, “It’s very pretty.”” (Martle, 84).This quote seems to blend the dichotomy so well that the audience isn’t clearly able to distinguish between the two Mr. Kumars. Through close reading, Mr. Kumar the biologist teacher states “Equus burchelli bohemi” which is the scientific name to the Grant’s Zebra, through which Mr. Kumar separates…
into, as species which have very similar (homologous) features can be
assumed to have evolved from the same common ancestors, e.g. horses
donkeys and zebras all have homologous features and can all be filed
under the genus Equus.
Humans have also had a hand in how many of the animals we see every
day are the way they are. Take Dogs for example, they have been bred
to produce a wide variety of qualities that we find desirable in them…
deceives some people into thinking that the one genus was somehow the
target of all the evolution. Instead, that one genus is merely the last surviving
branch of a once mighty and sprawling bush.
Tracing a line of descent from Hyracotherium to Equus reveals several
apparent trends: reduction of toe number, increase in size of cheek teeth,
lengthening of the face, and increase in body size. But these trends are not
seen in all of the horse lines. On the whole, horses got larger, but some…
Through the incorporation of figurative language in both Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka and Equus by Peter Shaffer, they set the characters in isolation during the experience of hiding emotions and focusing on other’s needs in order for the undergoing of self-discovery and peace within self. Therefore analyzing the behavior that occurs during the process and the aftermath of their seclusion will determine the success of their accomplishment with the breakthrough of peace. When comparing the two texts…
asses 62, and zebras include 3 distinct species which have between 32 and 46. It is interesting because certain species of African wild asses have stripes in parts of their bodies similar to zebras.
The horse, ass, and zebra, all in the genus equus, are good examples of how evolution increased diversity. They never lost their ability to completely interbreed but are unable to do it successfully because of sterile hybrid offspring. Earth is still gaining new species as the process of evolution…
