to identify with

In his novella Identity, Kundera begins to wind up the dream-like story with an image of his heroine leaving the orgy – while all others around her turn to animals – as a shepardess, and her lover a shepard…they the only ones left among the beasts. Before this scene is my favorite line, so simple, “she has the impression of being drawn along in a conspiracy of coincidences.”
