Additional Info

Here Pirandello discloses his feeling and closeness to life in a pattern which somewhat follows some of his other major plays. In this play, a Father is tortured since his thoughts, no matter how brilliant, are crippled by his emotions, which subordinate his thoughts. The Father is the strong character through which Pirandello allows us the insight needed to come to grips with the probe and its message for all six characters and its author.
