Abstract
In every short story of 'L'Exil et le royaume' by Albert Camus exists a hierarchical system of characters composed of a protagonist and secondary characters. The six protagonists surrounded with secondary characters form another system with their destiny in the exile and their pursuit of the kingdom. This thesis attempts to analyze the composition and transformation of the six protagonists in the relation that they maintain with other characters, and bring out their different interpretations of the key themes of the six short stories in the collection: the exile and the kingdom. For the six protagonists, the exile is materialized in the rejection, the invasion and the lack of understanding of other characters. They approach the kingdom when they succeed in building a network of relations according to their will and defending their identity against exterior interventions. With the different results they obtain, Camus presents various options and shows a certain progress and continuity in their struggle.
