Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 141791825X, Paperback)

1922. Contains Six Characters in Search of an Author; Henry IV.; and Right You Are! (If You Think So). Pirandello, Italian author, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1934. Pirandello's plays are often seen as forerunners for theater of the absurd. Right You Are (If You Think So) marked Pirandello's interest in the examination of the relativity of truth. The story was about a woman whose identity remains hidden and who could be one of the two very different people. Six Characters in Search of An Author created a scandal when it was first performed in Rome, but was hailed as a masterpiece in Paris. Henry IV received much better reception in Italy. It told about a man who believes he is the German emperor Henry IV. To accommodate his illness his wealthy sister has placed him in a medieval castle surrounded by actors dressed as eleventh-century courtiers.
