Luigi Pirandellos reiches Novellenwerk steht in der culture der italienischen Novelle seit Boccaccio und enthält zugleich Bravourstücke moderner Prosa.

Pirandello führt dem Leser die italienische Gesellschaft vor Augen, ihre Charaktere, Abgründe und Sehnsüchte. Indem seine Geschichten einen unerwarteten Lauf nehmen, kehren sie auch unsere gewohnten Vorstellungen um. Dadurch werden sie trotz ihrer Erzählfreude auch zu philosophischen Miniaturen, die um Glück und Unglück, um die persönliche Identität, um Größe und Niedrigkeit des Menschen kreisen und den Leser in ihre Gedankenspiele verwickeln.
