About this title: An extensive collection of much previously unpublished archival material including documents from Luigi Pirandello's theoretical essays and reviews. Emphasising Pirandello as a multi-faceted man of the theatre, this book follows the rise and fall of his own theatre company and his attempts to reform deeply entrenched practices in Italian theatre during the years of Fascism. Susan Bassnett and Jennifer Lorch are lecturers of Italian at the University of Warwick, UK.
