Abstract

What does being canonic mean for a dramatic text? Why is a text such as "Six characters in Search of an Author, a text that broke radically with the traditional structure of drama, expressing the crisis within fundamental categories of Westernthought, considered canonic? The author analyses the problem in two joint-text essays that accompany Pirandello's work, from the perspectives of ideas and that of the history of the dramatic form and performance: "inside the text" and "staging".The book is the first of a series of volumes designed to put together the pieces of an open mosaic, which has contributed significantly to the building and expression of the European consciousness.
