Six Characters in Search of an Author (Dover Thrift Editions)by Luigi Pirandello
Synopses & Reviews
This 1921 intellectual comedy contrasts illusion with reality by introducing 6 individuals to a bare stage occupied by actors in rehearsal. Proclaiming themselves the incomplete creations of an author's imagination, the 6 demand dialog for the story of their lives. A classic dramatic exploration of the many faces of reality. Publisher's Note.
Six individuals, the incomplete creations of an author's imagination, demand dialogue for their story. This open-ended drama excited both controversy and acclaim at its 1921 premiere and remains a milestone in modern theater.
Luigi Pirandello's masterpiece, "Six Characters in Search of an Author", presents the playwright's views about the isolation of the individual from society and from himself. This play within a play chronicles six characters as they seek an author to tell their story, and to present their real lives on stage. But do their realities make better tales than fiction?
