Popular Ebook Henry IV A tema c’è il complesso e inestricabile rapporto tra finzione e verità, persona e personaggio, realtà e fuga da essa. Enrico IV è vittima non solo della pazzia (dapprima autentica e poi consapevolmente simulata), ma anche della propria incapacità/impossibilità di adeguarsi ad una realtà che non gli si confà più.Ma nel gioco tragicomico tra identità e finzione, in cui niente sembra vero, è implicato il desiderio di un possibile (impossibile?) istante di verità affermata e vissuta senza maschere. Ho “sentito” il testo pirandelliano impregnato di questo struggimento.“Tutta la vita è schiacciata così dal peso delle parole! Il peso dei morti! – Eccomi qua: potete credere sul serio che Enrico IV sia ancora vivo? Eppure, ecco, parlo e comando a voi vivi. Vi voglio così! – Vi sembra una burla anche questa, che seguitano a farla i morti la vita? – Sì, qua è una burla: ma uscite di qua, nel mondo vivo. Spunta il giorno. Il tempo è davanti a voi. Un’alba. Questo giorno che ci sta davanti – voi dite – lo faremo noi! – Sì? Voi? E salutatemi tutte le tradizioni! Salutatemi tutti i costumi! Mettetevi a parlare! Ripetete tutte le parole che si sono sempre dette! Credete di vivere? Rimasticate la vita dei morti!”.

  • Pirandello was a complex and bizarre man when it came to penning down personality narrations His works on theatrical post modern genres are not only mesmerizing but quite baffling at times.Henry IV is an engrossing masquerade about an actor protagonist of a play who goes crazy after being knocked off his horse The actor then wanders in a deluded world owing to the persona of Henry IV a character he used to play before the ill fated mishap spanning over twelve years after the fall Thus he then pr [...]

  • Stiamo studiando il terzo atto alla facolt , davvero complesso ed molto difficile a capire, ma esprime tante idee e tanti concetti filosofici, come per esempio, la pazzia vera confidarsi con qualcuno I temi del tradimento e della fugacit del tempo sono ben tratti, si pu capire come Enrico sente, dopo che la vita gli era passata, e dopo aver perso il suo posto nel cuore della donna amato, e nella societ perch tutti gli ritenevano pazzo Tutto gli era cambiato dopo il giorno disgraziato.




  • Very perplexing it s about sanity and insanity and how the fine line between them gets somewhat blurry at times this work mocks the certainty and seriousness with which people act or consider themselves in life in general loved the second act best.

  • The clothes make the man And in this case it is the 11th century robes of the German Holy Roman Emperor Henry IV The plot in brief At a costume party a man whose real name is never told falls from a horse and wakes up believing he is Henry IV Twenty years later, his cousin and others come to his home to shock him out of his delusion Identity, self and madness are all called in question in this brief play The wonderfully tight plot pulls all these elements together in strange yet revealing settin [...]



  • Pirandello has a way of writing that feels as if the reader is intruding on his own personal turmoil which, given the institutionalization of his wife and the extreme depression he suffered after his huge financial losses in the mining business, were numerous sometimes the words on the page are so genuinely personal and true that Pirandello is Henry IV Monologuing in the words of a half crazy, half lucid, and all tumultuously violent man stuck in the dichotomous realities of his mind and compani [...]


  • With Pirandello s later plays he really began to alter the idea of what dramatical works could be in the first half of the 20th century Pirandello s work predates the theater of the absurd movement that would become prevalent in post war drama Instead of focusing on the outright absurdity of the dialogue and characters actions as many in that latter movement did, Pirandello incorporated the audience into his works had his characters challenge the very notion of a play itself.In this play a man s [...]

  • E davvero difficile commentare un testo teatrale che si presta a molte riflessioni.Pirandello riesce, con un colpo di penna e probabilmente qualche bravo attore a stravolgere i punti di vista.Entriamo nella storia pian piano, in punta di piedi e creiamo la nostra opinione, che viene immediatamente e inaspettatamente stravolta nell atto successivo.Non essendo una grande estimatrice dei testi teatrali dei quali, lo ammetto, preferisco vedere la rappresentazione, ritengo per che le opere di Pirande [...]


  • Pirandello is an absolute master His Six Characters in Search of an Author is one of my favorite dramas of all time Enrico IV falls in the same line reality and illusion are not necessarily distinguishable from each other, and are subject to the human characters choosing to participate He takes the act of drama itself as the catalyst for this exploration, to stunning effects The story never seems strained, and the language flies off the page I have too many favorite lines to list them here fanta [...]


  • 3.5 stars This was pleasantly good, and I honestly enjoyed it than I thought I would The plot was genius and, even if it was not very long, all the characters were well developed, their feelings reliable.Nonetheless, the beginning was a bit slow and I didn t quite get the ending I think it was a little bit off tone compared to the rest Still, this was a really nice read, and I would recommend it if you want to start getting into plays


  • Enrique IV est loco O los locos son todos los dem s Una obra que juega con el concepto de la locura y los llamados locos Como dice el personaje, Benditos sean ellos Los locos construyen sin l gica, o con una l gica propia que vuela como una pluma Una obra divertida y fascinante donde la realidad se vuelve una verdadera locura Pirandello nos afirma una frase de Lewis Carroll Est loco, pero te dire un secreto las mejores personas lo est n.


  • Oddly cute.Not what I expected at all, because I thought I was going to read about Henry IV of England Still, it was an unexpected delight I read somewhere recently that what novelists really have to sell is omniscience This play certainly fits that bill.There was a whole lot of cliche, but I guess that s normal with classics If it wasn t a cliche before it was written, it was after.


  • This, and not Six Characters, is my favorite play by Pirandello hands down I won t write at length about it, as the plot is tricky and must be related in some detail but if you like the idea of truth vs illusion George did, Martha didn t in a recent play you will be on the edge of your seat, whether at a performance but it s a bitch to get right or reading it when you can imagine your own performance, often as much fun as seeing one


  • Letto o riletto ho una vera lacuna mnesica in occasione dello spettacolo Teatrale di stasera Pirandello delizia il cervello del lettore con questi dialoghi secchi e complessi che arricchiscono di filosofia una storia semplicissima a livello di trama Pura manna per la mente.


  • Read this Technically a reread, because I ve read Enrico IV in Italian, but this was the first time I d read the Stoppard one, which has a nice modern tone to it while maintaining the feeling of the play.


  • Having recently re read a different translation from, I believe, the 1950s , of this, one of my favorite plays, I was interested in seeing how the Tom Stoppard version would differ The tone is modern, but the intentions remain, and it was definitely a smoother read Still brilliant


  • The story was good and creative The main character survives after an accident only to spend the next 20 years believing that he s an ancient German emperor I also liked the climax, as some unexpected revelations were disclosed.


  • Un altro tassello, forse meno immediatamente comprensibile di altri, della tipica riflessione pirandelliana sulle maschere indossate dall Io Per ricordarci che, in fondo, meglio essere disprezzati che osannati per ci che non siamo.
