The bachelor’s thesis focuses on the plays of the well known Slovenian actress, professor, essayist, poet and playwright Saša Pavček. The analysis consists of four plays - Čisti vrelec ljubezni (A Spring of Pure Love), Al’ en al’ dva? (One or Two), Pod snegom (Under the Snow) and Arija (Aria) - and concentrates on the comparison of the characters, motifs, themes and language. The plays feature a fairly small amount of characters and at least one of these characters is stigmatized or is dealing with the loss of a loved one. Moreover, in three out of four plays the characters are facing an identity crisis. The complex personal relations of the characters are connected with the themes of love and art and even - in one of the plays - terrorism. Different dramatic forms are characteristic of the analysed plays (tragicomedy, one person comedy, ballad used as a dramatic form and one-act play), as well as are different styles of language (dialects, German expressions, vulgarisms, slang, marked word order, heightened language) and, to a certain extent, an open ending.
