Synopsis: Questions central to the drama of the Italian writer Luigi Pirandello (1867-1936) are the distinctions between Life and Form; what is the Self, if indeed there is one; what is Truth; and what is the artist's responsibility in revealing the Self. This book examines the processes by which Pirandello, dramatic innovator and Nobel Laureate, explored the relativity of truth and the stripping away of masks in three major plays. His characters experience these moments of «costruirsi» as they come face to face with their individual moments of Truth and either disintegrate or become fully realized.

Review: «This thought-provoking, highly readable analysis of Pirandello's contributions to the theatre and our understanding of selves is a must for theatre historians and for each of us who would understand the dynamics of self. It is not only important to theatre historians, but may well be the most helpful book to enhance our understanding of self in process since Sidney Jourard's 'Transparent Self'». (Ray G. Ewing, Southeast Missouri State University)
«Biundo's book, like Pirandello's characters, has many faces - with Scholarship, Readability and diverse Applicability being the most recognizable. Any serious student of the recent trend in psycho-history should read this book for an in depth study of the different shades of personality.» (Jane Stephens, Southeast Missouri State University)
