Read full description of the books Naked Masks: Five Plays:This special one-volume edition features five great plays by one of the most celebrated and fascinating dramatists of the twentieth century.
Pirandello, awarded the Nobel Prize in 1934, was the playwright par excellence of the conflict between illusion 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 theater 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.

Read information about the authorLuigi Pirandello (Italian: [luˈiːdʒi piranˈdɛllo]; Agrigento 28 June 1867 – Rome 10 December 1936) was an Italian dramatist, novelist, poet and short story writer whose greatest contributions were his plays. He was awarded the 1934 Nobel Prize in Literature for "his almost magical power to turn psychological analysis into good theatre. Pirandello's works include novels, hundreds of short stories, and about 40 plays, some of which are written in Sicilian. Pirandello's tragic farces are often seen as forerunners of the Theatre of the Absurd.
Awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1934 "for his bold and ingenious revival of dramatic and scenic art."
