The reality of man's existence became a great source of inspiration in Eugène Ionesco's theatre. The aim of this thesis is to examine Ionesco's ideas on the victimization of man in his universe. In our presentation of his concepts, examples will be shown from various works (La Leçon, La Cantatrice Chauve, Les Chaises, Jacques ou La Soumission, Rhinocéros, Victimes du Devoir, Amédeé ou Comment - s'en débarrasser, and Jeux de Massacre) in order to fully examine his particular vision of life. Such a study aims at bringing about a realization and understanding of the conditions man is exposed to in the universe.
