About this ebook

Il paesaggio umano di Luigi Pirandello, premio Nobel per la letteratura nel 1934, è una piana di frantumi. I suoi personaggi sono segnati dalla follia, dalla fissazione unica, dalla ossessione esiziale. Pirandello descrive la vita in tutte le sue follie. Il "destino" paventato e raccontato dai suoi antichi colleghi greci diventa in lui una frattura del carattere, della personalità. Non esiste al mondo una persona "normale", sembra voler dire il genio siciliano. Normalità è la follia. E a guardarli vivere, questi innumerevoli personaggi alla ricerca spasmodica della felicità (della verità), si sente infine una immensa gelata pietà.
Il Fu Mattia Pascal è il romanzo più famoso di Pirandello. Racconta di una fuga dalla vita comune. Chi non ha mai desiderato di cambiare vita, di diventare una persona diversa, migliore, più felice? A Mattia Pascal il destino, o il caso, offre l’occasione per farlo. Otterrà quello che ha sognato?

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.
