"Elma is a singer in a sleazy 1930s Berlin nightclub. Having suffered an appalling assault during the First World War, she has no memory of her former life. A man appears and tells her that she is, in fact, the wife of an Italian aristocrat, and a new life awaits her. But when she goes to Italy to pursue this dream, she is greeted only by problems and disappointments. Pirandello uses this story to explore the mysteries of identity and memory, themes that preoccupied him throughout his life."--Jacket

Pirandello's love letters to Marta Abba by Luigi Pirandello( Book )

3 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The hundreds of letters Pirandello wrote to Abba during these years are the only source that reveals the true story of his relentless torment. Selected, translated, and introduced here for the first time in any language, these powerful and moving documents reward the reader with the unique experience of living in intimacy with a profound poet of human pain. Here Pirandello encourages his beloved in her difficult career as actor/manager, rejoices in her triumphs, and desperately implores her to return to him. The letters are filled with glimpses of this major artistic personality at some of his most distinctive moments - such as the award of the Nobel Prize, his meetings with Mussolini, and Marta's long-dreamed-of success on Broadway - but they remain foremost an authentic confession of a Pirandello, without the mask of his art, telling the story of his real-life tragedy." "In 1986, two years before she died, Marta Abba authorized the publication of the present correspondence so that the world might understand how deeply Pirandello had suffered. This English-language volume contains a selection of 164 letters from the complete edition of 552, which Princeton University Press will publish in cooperation with Mondadori, in the original Italian, in 1995"--Jacket

Al centro del dramma, ambientato in una cittadina di provincia, c'è lo strano comportamento del signor Ponza e di sua moglie, che non esce mai di casa. I vicini si incuriosiscono e cominciano a indagare. Perchè nessuno ha mai visto la signora Ponza? Perchè persino sua madre, la signora Frola, non può comunicare con lei, se non per mezzo di biglietti calati dalla finestra con un canestro?
