The study deals with an analysis of the oniric themes in the works written by Jean Anouilh, one of the best-known French playwrights, whose plays are frequently appearing on stages in France as well as the whole world. The oniric themes are represented by a variety of dreams, visions, somnambulism, nightmares and states when the spirit leaves the body during the sleeping hours. The analysis is performed on the plays Eurydice, Le Songe du Critique, Le Boulanger, la Boulangere et le Petit Mitron and L’Arrestation. Each time, the oniric theme is defined according to its distribution, function and the role that it plays in the author’s creative strategy.
