Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Contains English translations of the 12 plays by Luigi Pirandello (1867-1936) which were written in Sicilian, six of which have not been translated into any language prior to this volume. The other six plays which were previously translated into Italian were also, in the process, "Italianized"; in this edition, the original Sicilian names are reassigned and the translator strives to retain the peculiarities and characteristics of the Sicilian tongue and cultural ways. Includes a list of Pirandello's plays and an introduction providing a brief biography and an explanation of the playwright's depiction of Sicilian cultural mores.
