The purpose of this dissertation will be to examine the theatre of Paul Claudel from the viewpoint of voyage. To illustrate the theme of voyage, both its physical and spiritual significance will be discussed. In our presentation of Claudel's theatre and its expression upon the stage we look specifically at the following plays because of their particular value in terms of the theme of voyage: Le Soulier de Satin, Le Livre de Christohe Colomb, Partage de Midi, L'Annonce Faite à Marie, Tête D'Or, Jeanne D'Arc au Bûcher, and the Trilogy Plays: L'Otage, Le Pain Dur, Le Père Humilie.
