DescriptionRegarded as one of Europe's great modernists, Pirandello was also a master storyteller, a fine observer of the drama of daily life with a remarkable ear for dialogue and a keen sense of the crushing burdens of class, gender, and social conventions. These original stories feel sun-baked with the deep lore of Italian folktales as well as the great Italian aesthetics of storytelling in modern times: bel canto, neorealism, verismo.
