This special one-volume edition features five great plays by one of the most celebrated and fascinating dramatists of the twentieth century.
Pirandello, awarded the Nobel Prize in 1934, was the playwright par excellence of the conflict between illusion and reality. His modern and sensationally original plays dramatize with force and eloquence the isolation of the individual from society and from himself.
The editor, Eric Bentley, is an international theater authority. In addition to the Introduction and the biographical and bibliographical material in the Appendices, Mr. Bentley has prepared for this volume the first English translations of the play Liolà and Pirandello’s important “Preface” to Six Characters in Search of an Author.
Included Plays:
It Is So! (If You Think So)
Henry IV
Six Characters in Search of an Author
Each in His Own Way

Baker & Taylor
Each of the five great plays illustrate the Italian dramatist's concern with the isolation of the individual
