Summary (From the publisher):

Now for the first time five great plays by one of the most celebrated and fascinating dramatists of the 20th century are made available in a low-priced edition.

Pirandello, awarded the Nobel Prize in 1934, was the playwright par excellence of the conflict between illustion 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 theatre 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 Liola and Pirandello's important "Preface" to Six Characters in Search of an Author.
