About this ebook

"Sei personaggi in cerca d'autore" è il dramma più famoso del grande Luigi Pirandello. Anche in quest'opera, come del resto in tutte le altre opere di questo autore si respira un'aria di attualità. Leggendo il dramma, in un primo momento si corre il rischio di essere confusi, quasi storditi dalla trama, ma poi tutto diventa chiaro, nitido e il senso dell'opera emerge prepotentemente. Il lettore è messo, cosi, davanti alla profonda consapevolezza, che la vita è come una rappresentazione teatrale in cui non siamo liberi di viverla come vorremmo, ma siamo costretti a sottostare a regole costituite, imposte da un tessuto sociale, quasi come se qualcun'altro avesse scritto la trama della nostra vita e noi fossimo obbligati necessariamente a recitare una parte.

Luigi Pirandello

Luigi Pirandello (1867-1936) was an Italian playwright, novelist, and poet. Born to a wealthy Sicilian family in the village of Cobh, Pirandello was raised in a household dedicated to the Garibaldian cause of Risorgimento. Educated at home as a child, he wrote his first tragedy at twelve before entering high school in Palermo, where he excelled in his studies and read the poets of nineteenth century Italy. After a tumultuous period at the University of Rome, Pirandello transferred to Bonn, where he immersed himself in the works of the German romantics. He began publishing his poems, plays, novels, and stories in earnest, appearing in some of Italy’s leading literary magazines and having his works staged in Rome. Six Characters in Search of an Author (1921), an experimental absurdist drama, was viciously opposed by an outraged audience on its opening night, but has since been recognized as an essential text of Italian modernist literature. During this time, Pirandello was struggling to care for his wife Antonietta, whose deteriorating mental health forced him to place her in an asylum by 1919. In 1924, Pirandello joined the National Fascist Party, and was soon aided by Mussolini in becoming the owner and director of the Teatro d’Arte di Roma. Although his identity as a Fascist was always tenuous, he never outright abandoned the party. Despite this, he maintained the admiration of readers and critics worldwide, and was awarded the 1934 Nobel Prize for Literature.
