These essays cover much of the span of Italian drama, from its origins, via the Renaissance and the 19th century, to Pirandello and versions for radio and theatre of Svevo's best-known novel. Contributors raise interesting questions concerning the nature of drama and how and where it can be identified.

Reviews

"The limited confines of a review such as this are hardly sufficient to describe and do justice to the scholarship and research that went in compiling this volume of essays . . . . what sets this collection of essays apart from most others concerning Italian theatre, is the unusual selection of dramatic texts analyzed and the specificity of the issues raised." -- Italian Studies in Southern Africa
