    When a character is born he acuires at once such an independence even of his own author that he can be imagined by everybody even in many other situations where the author never dreamed of placing him; and so he acuires for himself a meaning which the author never thought of giving himThis is true for almost all of my favourite books I often disagree with the initial thoughts the authors had when they created their stories as I form my own distinctive ideas about the characters while reading and I am not willing to give them up to suit the accuracy of literary studies a field I gave up after university in order to keep my passion for reading The tension between reader and writer between interpretation and author's intention the relationship between parent and child the break between an individual and the cultural heritage into which he is born the loneliness of a character trying to find a suitable role in a world that doesn't ask for his performance the uestions raised by Pirandello are as difficult as they are relevantI wonder at his genius sometimes When he wrote his experimental play did he see all those characters of the future coming to usurp the role of the artist to search for their own publicity their own stages their own words? When he imagined the conflict between the unrealised charactersand their potential author did he see something in human beings that was waiting for the technological development that made self realisation as easy as going to a traditional interview? Via Facebook Youtube Twitter and Instagram?All of social media is full of characters who look for an audience for their words their gestures their poses their banality filled life stories They don't need to bow to the power of an author any to satisfy their need for visibility all that is reuired is an increasing number of other characters who are willing to admire the Facebook picture of a morning latte in exchange for a like on the latest holiday snapshotThe absurdity of our reality is the topic of Pirandello's philosophical play and he shows the tragic comedy of life as a stage where human beings fight for visibility taking their ridiculous small matters as seriously as can be always conscious of the reaction of viewersWhat is the stage? It's a place baby you know where people play at being serious a place where they act comedies We've got to act a comedy now dead seriousI am seen therefore I am That is our era's credo And art is in the eye of the beholder which gives the audience a power which has yet to be put on stageAn audience in search of entertaining characters is the next step and we have plenty of characters who are willing to step up to play any parts that will get a decent amount of applause

    Sei personaggi in cerca d'autore Six Characters in Search of an Author Luigi PirandelloSix Characters in Search of an Author Italian Sei personaggi in cerca d'autore is an Italian play by Luigi Pirandello written and first performed in 1921 An acting company prepares to rehearse the play The Rules of the Game by Luigi Pirandello As the rehearsal is about to begin they are unexpectedly interrupted by the arrival of six strange people The Director of the play furious at the interruption demands an explanation The Father explains that they are unfinished characters in search of an author to finish their story The Director initially believes them to be mad but as they begin to argue among themselves and reveal details of their story he begins to listen The Father and The Mother had one child together The Son but they have separated and Mother has had three children by another man The Stepdaughter The Boy and The Child a girl The Father attempted to buy sex from The Stepdaughter claiming he did not recognize her after so many years but The Stepdaughter is convinced he knew who she was the entire time The Mother walked in on The Father and The Stepdaughter shortly after The Father's proposal and informs The Stepdaughter that he is her ex husband; they both express their disgust and outrage While The Director is not an author he agrees to load it their story despite disbelief among the jeering actors After a 20 minute break The Characters and The Company return to the stage to perform some of the story so far They begin to perform the scene between The Stepdaughter and The Father in Madame Pace's shop which the Director decides to call Scene I The Characters are very particular about the setting wanting everything to be as realistic as possible The Director asks The Actors to observe the scene because he intends for them to perform it later This sparks the first argument between The Director and The Characters over the acting of the play because The Characters had assumed that they would be performing it seeing as they are The Characters already The Director continues the play but The Stepdaughter has problems with the accuracy of the setting saying she doesn't recognize the scene Just as The Director is about to begin the scene once he realizes that Madame Pace is not with them The Actors watch in disbelief as The Father lures her to the stage by hanging their coats and hats on racks and Madame Pace follows attracted by the very articles of her trade The scene begins between Madame Pace and The Stepdaughter with Madame Pace exhorting The Stepdaughter telling her she must work as a prostitute to save The Mother's job The Mother protests at having to watch the scene but she is restrained After The Father and The Stepdaughter act half of the scene The Director stops them so that The Actors may perform what they have just done The Characters break into laughter as The Actors try to imitate them The Actors continue but The Stepdaughter cannot contain her laughter as The Actors use the wrong tones of voice and gestures The Father begins another argument with The Director over the realism of The Actors compared to The Characters themselves The Director allows The Characters to perform the rest of the scene and decides to have the rehearsals later This time The Stepdaughter explains the rest of the scene during an argument with The Director over the truth on stage The scene culminates in an embrace between The Father and The Stepdaughter which is realistically interrupted by the distressed Mother The line between reality and acting is blurred as the scene closes with The Director pleased with the first actThe final act of the play begins in the garden It is revealed that there was much arguing among the family members as The Father sent for The Mother The Stepdaughter The Child The Boy and The Son to come back and stay with him The Son reveals that he hates the family for sending him away and does not consider The Stepdaughter or the others a part of his family The scene ends with The Child drowning in a fountain The Boy committing suicide with a revolver and The Stepdaughter running out of the theater leaving The Son The Mother and The Father on stage The play ends with The Director confused over whether it was real or not concluding that in either case he lost a whole day over

    Six Characters in Search of a StagePresents a comic tragic? and confusing cast of six enigmatic characters seeking an author who can put them inside a 'book' They need this badly so that they can live where they are born to live on the stage and away from this off stage world of ordinary people without 'drama' inborn in them They stumble on a stage and almost manages to get a director to present their story too But in the end their play does not manage to get presented because how can their story be truly represented without the 'missing' author? Also who can play them on stage? Surely they can't be allowed to play themselves Thus the 'Drama' never materializes Instead is presented the comedy of their vain attempts at putting their 'drama' 'out there' because being mere characters they need an audience all the time But there is also the tragedy inherent in the situation the six characters have been rejected by their author the author did not consider them worthy of a presentation since he did not feel anything meaningful about life can be told through their story?Now what use is your drama if your author did not think it worthy of 'philosophy'? How can you innovate or derive real meaning in the absence of the divine author?This intricate play needs to be seen on stage I could imagine seeing this play and deriving great enjoyment from the bewilderment of the manager etc but on the lifeless pages of a book it fails to capture me Continuously imagining it on stage was too exhausting to maintain I will be looking forward to an opportunity to catch this on the screen or on the stage These characters cannot be experienced fully away from their natural habitat They are made too precisely Other Actors No no it's only make believe it's only pretenceThe Father with a terrible cry Pretence? Reality sir realityThe Manager Pretence? Reality? To hell with it all Never in my life has such a thing happened to me I 've lost a whole day over these people a whole day

    I read or correctly saw this play performed in 1968 at the Carleton University Theatre with a beautiful and intelligent blonde who later dumped me at the uni we subseuently attended though then at an appropriate distance from meThe reason? Her recently chosen new boyfriend was from a rich and connected family And as for me I was bright but dull to herI seemed bright I say for I raved to her about this play but dull at reading her signs and preferences Diamonds are some girls’ best friendBut then I didn’t get her attitude And SHE couldn’t make sense of this play and found me odd for doing so And some choose higher learning as a fast lane to finding a eligible bachelor And I wonder where is she now? Dunno but I have a hunch she probably lacks a meaning to go with all the substance The best laid plans Just like these Six CharactersNow aren’t we ALL looking for the author of this traumatic saga this turbulent game we’re forced to act a part in like these characters? After all what does this game really MEAN?This an excellent and rewarding play to read I thought and puzzled about it for hours after I saw it performed Doncha just wish like these characters that you could crack the code of life’s play?Pirandello’s characters wish that in spadesPerhaps an author would tell us his answer perhaps notWell can I give you mine?Being a Flower Child I think the answer is Love And that’s my Final Answer Meredith for Five Million Happily Ever AftersAnd as an Answer it’s all I really need right now here on Earth As must be the opinion of my beautiful onetime friend Diane right about now

    Recently casually a friend mentioned who he thinks I am It was not at all who I think I am Among other things his version of me inexplicably is not a Viking I'm pretty sure he was projecting there but how would I know? Is there anyone less ualified to interpret me than me?Pirandello's absurdist 1921 play is about how we create our own realities how each of us choose to play a character to such an extent that we sometimes sit outside ourselves watching our characters act out their scenes And some part of us sits outside that watching the watcher and who knows who lives at the bottom of it all? And it's about the subjective nature of reality how to each of us the scenes we live through may be be completely different to each actor in them This is what Pirandello's dealing with at least until Act III when he starts to talk about the writing process and also to wrap up his own plot It's all very smart and often funny My character enjoys it A character under that thinks it's a little show offy A character under that is afraid he didn't get it at all and a character under that is afraid that his opinion hasn't even been written

    This made for a whimsical and thought provoking “read” by LibriVox audiobook A family of six wanders into a theater where a director and cast are rehearsing a play by Pirandello in which they complain “nobody understands anything and where the author plays the fool with us all” The Father and Mother names unspecified explain they and their children are Characters in the middle of a drama that is in sore need of an author to make it real and bring some resolution to their story Though the director is not an author he is captivated enough by their story to believe he could fulfill their needs by having his actors put on a production He begins to have the family reenact their story and then have the actors try to emulate their performance After one section the family complains or laughs about the uality and veracity of the actors and argue that they should be the ones used in the production As they proceed with their attempts at acting out their history the family reveals such lurid melodramatic and tragic elements to their story the director comes to doubt whether it’s believable and believes he has wasted a whole day of rehearsalThe play was pretty zany with the cynical director trying to juggle so many balls the actors getting upstaged and the sordid pathos of the extremely dysfunctional family leaping off the page through their strident efforts to become realized through a stage performance Fiction and non fiction get confused in our minds and the magic in the roles of director actor and script gets undermined by their vivisection that takes place before our eyes The one element missing is the writer which I suppose we are supposed to consider as the reason for the director’s conclusion of defeat First premiered in 1921 this play was a seminal precursor to the post war Theater of the Absurd such as Beckett’s “Waiting for Godot” 1952 This play’s full tilt boogie on the “meta” element of crossovers between authors and their characters also presaged common uses of this device in postmodern works four or decades later In particular his countryman Calvino in the 1979 novel “If on a winter’s night a traveler” makes a related kind of mind bender with its screwball tale of readers shaping and getting involved with the contents and authors of what they’re reading This makes for a short fun read or listen as an introduction to the work of a Pulitzer Prize winner Though most respected as a playwright he did write some novels and volumes of essays and short stories I look forward to trying his novel “The Late Mattia Pascal” 1904

    Who is Luigi Pirandello?A twentieth century writer from SicilyA Noble Prize winnerI had never heard of himThis play ‘Six characters in search of an Author’ is just great Pirandello wrote this apparition an invention without oxygen atop Mt Etna or so it seems Like life it is completely absurd More cannot be packed into so few pages I am still shaking my headA pinch of tragedy doses of satire an undercurrent of philosophy throughout complex and detailed actors and their exchanges a slice of psychology human folly and life’s randomnessAnd to think it lasted only a year and a half off Broadway before it closed because of thinning attendance not very long ago It is significant PerceptionsMi e piaciuto

    They say I was born in June The day the year somehow ceases to exist I live with my mother She stares at the wall singing songs unnoticing my existence in the house Is this how being an orphan feels like? I used to work at Madame Pace’s dress shop Only it wasn't a dress shop It was a whore house where I used to entertain clients throughout the night My mother was unaware of my earnings but as if it mattered Then one day I fell in love In fact I fell in love with his eyes The same brown affectionate eyes that I own They were so memorable they were mine I could see myself in them My eyes on this strange face mesmerizing yet daunting He was my client elderly yet so affectionate Months went by but he never visited me again I looked for him but no avail They say he shot himself out of guilt He was my biological father The shame of seducing his own blood ate him up after finding my truth So as I lay in a pool of blood the cold metal burning against my sinful hands I pierce the sharp edge into the warm blob of flesh I killed my baby I killed my brother I practically cease to exist now Shame and numbness has weighed my soul into nothingness The man once my mother had left my father for took her away So here I come to you with an unfilled life and an unfinished story pleading you to bring an authored conclusion“You imbecile” yelled the stage manager “You expect me to believe this garbage and let my actors perform your absurdity“Yes” I affirm “The settings should be realistic and the truth should be told in its unaltered form”“I am an unrealized character sir” I humbly say “I need you to finish my story and bring it to life”The stage manager now enraged walks away hurling obscenities and muttering “Acting is our business here Truth up to a certain point but no further”; as he looks at me with a sardonic smilePirandello illuminates the ‘Theatre of Absurd’ genre in this bizarre performance A form of drama that emphasizes the absurdity of human existence by employing disjointed repetitious and meaningless dialogue purposeless and confusing situations and plots that lack realistic or logical development Purely in its theatrical form he depicts a tale of six characters in search of an author who is able not only to complete their fragmentary story but to perform their ingenuous legitimacy A story which is not a story after all Through the numerous arguments between the six characters and the stage manager about portrayal of reality in its unaltered state to the audiences marks the debate of life reality vs stage reality The sense of illusion what is illustrated to be a reality on performance stage is far from the factual formsThe plethora of reality television that demarcates an entire generation outlook mutates the genuineness of its characters How real are the nuances of these actors who state publicly that their respected shows are not scripted but spontaneous? The movies that state ‘based on a true story’ how far do they enact the truth or is pragmatism edited to normalization of absurdity Pirandello stresses on the theatre being an illusion of reality where actors masuerade real emotions through rehearsals and mutabilityA brilliant existentialism perception of individuals being characters all through their life portraying roles that they're born into and the normality of emotions attached to their specific roles Who are we? The roles that we are born into or the tangible roles we want to play

    Stop wait It was the Six Characters in Search of an Author Well there actually is a connection Milo Manara was the reason I first got acuainted with Luigi PirandelloNow that I have fought my way through the play a few song lines pops up in my headWooords doooon´t come eeeasy tooo meee What´s the fuzz tell me what is happening?I can easily see the chocking effect it had when first performed even I don´t uite get that the good people of Milan should be so much open minded than the citizens of Rome As revolting as it is that a young woman should meet her estranged father in “a house of ill reputation” that the characters without an author are alienated disconnected and yet full of inner life insisting that said life should be enlarged I still fail to feel the grandness of the playA play within a play or a meta narrative is what is forming and the storyline is just not strong enough The absurdist experimenting theatre is no stranger to me I see where we are going that art for arts sake is not enough for Pirandello – and I see the beginning of method acting The actor learning from a scrip is a dying race in from left comes the real human tragedy or drama The Mimesis of old has now played its part and may retire But this is not even close to social realism even the translator Eric Bentley spend many pages paraphrasing it as such It is an interesting take on family tragedies from a man who was alienated from his own family in so many ways that it is hard not to call out to Freud to clear things up However significant it was in the 1920´es it regrettably leaves me lukewarm today
