Play by Luigi Pirandello’s – Six Characters in Search of an Author
Bio of Luigi Pirandello
Luigi Pirandello was part of a movement to create literary works with a clear beginning, middle, and end as seen in the Act 1, Act 2, and Act 3. His mission was to use of a three-part structure change the experience for readers and audience? He challenges readers (and his audiences) to explore questions: “Who am I?” and “What is real?” but refuses to answer them. Pirandellism (coined from the author’s name) has come to stand in for the idea that there are as many truths as there are points of view. But Pirandello challenges readers and audience members to experience this fully: he adds steps that move the stage out into the audience, which marks “a break in conventional ‘fourth wall’ concept, in which the actors on the stage proceed as if unaware of the audience” (Puchner, 2012, p. 262).
How does Pirandello’s three-part act and breaking down of the fourth wall add to his exploration of truth or vary audience experience or point of view?
