Berecche and the War

Year: 2000
This represents the first time that Pirandello's Berecche and the War has been translated into the English Language. Pirandello's historical novella, set in the months preceding Italy's entry into the First World War, is amongst much else a highly individual contribution to war literature and historical fiction. As he charts the crisis of those times as it affects the carefully constructed identity of his protagonist, he embarks on a radical questioning of nineteenth-century notions of order, method and discipline. Further, his dialogue with historical narrative leads him to explore and expose the fiction inherent in representing historical reality, and the fictions by which we all live.

Marcantonio Ravì has a plan: to give his beautiful daughter, Stellina, in marriage to the elderly but hugely wealthy Don Diego Alcozèr. Justifying his decision to appalled family and neighbors, he encourages the lazy Pepè Alletto to take a longer view—in only a few years, following Don Diego’s death, a younger, more suitable husband can be found. Stellina herself is bitterly opposed to the marriage, fainting at her wedding party; and events spiral further out of control when Pepè’s bullish lawyer brother-in-law becomes involved.

The Mountain Giants

The Mountain Giants

Author: Luigi Pirandello, Charles Wood
Publisher: Absolute Press
ISBN:
Pages: 104
Year: 1993
A long-awaited theatrical and literary event; this posthumously published and unfinished play has been provided with the missing final scene by Charles Wood. The action takes place in the fantastic Villa Scalogna, inhabited by a grotesque group of people led by Cotrone, a wizard and illusionist. Into this scene comes a band of actors, about to perform one of Pirandello's own plays. The Mountain Giants was first produced at the National Theatre in the summer of 1993. Pirandello's prolific writing career was unusual in that he had already earned a considerable reputation as a poet and prose author before turning to the theatre relatively late in life. The premiere of Six Characters in Search of an Author in 1921 established him internationally as Italy's leading playwright.
