Pirandello vs d’Annunzio

Paolo Puppa    Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia, Italia     ORCID iD



This essay analyses the critical hatred shown by Pirandello against d’Annunzio. And especially in the private letters sent to his beloved actress, the hostility maintains all his aversion, although in public the relationship has been transformed into collaboration, during the staging of the Figlia di Iorio in 1934. And yet, the Pirandellian work reveals withdrawals from the d’Annunzian one.

Keywords: Pirandello. D’Annunzio. Literary critics. Hate. Envy. Jalousy.
