Henry Millon de Montherlant has often been referred to as alienated, alone, a man on the fringes of society. And most of the protagonists in his theatre are, like their author, outsiders. His characters all delight in their solitude and isolation, and in fact, they seek it. Our intention in this article is to examine these protagonists in four plays (La Reine morte, La Ville dont le Prince est un enfant, Le Maître de Santiago et Le Cardinal d'Espagne) in which such voluntary exile is represented.
