Characters and Authors in Luigi Pirandello

This chapter emphasizes some of Luigi Pirandello's most notable novels; one in particular which took fifteen years to complete. It also discusses Pirandello's appreciation of other novelists. The chapter focuses on Pirandello's ‘Uno, nessuno e centomila’ and the novel's difference from the previous ones that the author wrote. The transitions from one character to another, which Luigi Pirandello was noted for, is lacking in this novel, making it a subject for further studies. In addition, this chapter discusses the movement of ‘essayism’ which involves a closer examination of Luigi Pirandello's works. The further parts of the chapter discuss Pirandello's view-point regarding his ‘superfluity’and how he incorporates such a principle in his writings. In addition, the chapter discusses the techniques that Pirandello used in order to capture his audience's attention and curiosity. This chapter finally tackles Luigi Pirandello's fondness of repeating stories which makes him an effective story-teller.

Keywords:   Luigi Pirandello, Uno nessuno e centomila, essayism, superfluity, story-teller
