Living masks : the achievement of Pirandello by Umberto Mariani( Book )

10 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Functioning as a guide to understanding the fundamental themes of Pirandello's plays, the author examines the critical, aesthetic, and technical problems associated with these plays. He provides extensive reflection on some of the failings of early and contemporary criticism on Pirandello's works and offers many corrections of interpretative direction that will be significant and helpful to directors and performers. In particular, Mariani presents a deeper understanding and greater appreciation of Pirandello's works as a challenge to the tendency to adapt and modify them, which drastically deprive the works of their original power and beauty." "A concise and accessible introduction to a twentieth-century literary master, 'Living Masks' will be of interest to dramatists, literary scholars, and students and scholars of Italian studies."--Jacket
