CAP AND BELLS (1916) offers a savagely comic view of Sicilian life when a woman tries to play a joke on her husband, but instead is sent off to an insane asylum to preserve the honor of his cuckolded clerk. In this play, Pirandello describes his notion of the "three springs" each individual carries around in his head--the serious, the social, and the insane--and whose use depends upon how honest one can afford to be in a social situation. MAN, BEAST AND VIRTUE (1919), which Olga Ragusa in her Introduction refers to as "the Pirandellian version of Expressionism, " tells the story of a young school teacher, his pregnant mistress, and her sea captain husband who is on his way home from one of his travels. The lovers devise an aphrodisiac for the unsuspecting husband who must make love to his wife so the expected child will appear to be his own. The successful seduction is announced by the wife with flowerpots on her windowsill! Previous owners personal library seal on last page. N° de réf. du libraire 008240
