The Late Mattia Pascal is a 1904 novel by Luigi Pirandello. So the twice-dead Late Mattia Pascal reduces himself to a figure outside the mainstream of society, a walk-on part in his own life. lt;/p

The late Mattia Pascal, by Luigi Pirandello, 1904. Introduction and translator's note (Arthur Livingston). That we have a first class drama in this novel is evident from the fact that Pirandello himself used the amusing situation in the first part of the story as the theme of one of his Sicilian comedies: Liolà ; and in a more important sense the book as a whole is to be counted among the sources that have inspired the new theatre. Chiarelli’s The Mask and the Face was a play that made a school ; and that school, the grotesque, may be thought of as an offspring of The Late Mattia Pascal.

Pascal, a landowner fallen on hard times and trapped in a miserable marriage, runs away from home and wins a lot of money at the gaming tables in Monte Carlo. Meanwhile, a dead body has been found in his village, and his neighbors assume it is Pascal- that he has killed himself. Seizing the chance to create a new life, Pascal travels to Rome under an assumed name, struggles to invent a different identity, fails, and returns home. There, he finds his wife has remarried. Now he must act out the role of a living ghost. These tragic events are recounted with verve and wit in Simborowski's spirited translation.

Pirandello:
“I think that life is a very sad piece of buffoonery; because we have in ourselves, without being able to know why, wherefore or whence, the need to deceive ourselves constantly by creating a reality (one for each and never the same for all), which from time to time is discovered to be vain and illusory. My art is full of bitter compassion for all those who deceive themselves, but this compassion cannot fail to be followed by the ferocious derision of destiny which condemns man to deception.”

Pirandello is best known for his plays, but he wrote some excellent short stories, and also novels, such as this comic masterpiece, It's not as modernist as his plays, but the writing is fast, crisp and witty, with some genuinely intriguing characters. I really enjoyed it, and was glad to have discovered it in this excellent translation.

This is an excellent novel, and not only is the content superb, this edition is an absolute pleasure to read. The pages are extremely smooth and the paper is of great quality. It was a true pleasure reading this book.

The main character got on my nerves but the book was great.

This is a classic. Pirandello is a wonderful writer - I grew up reading his Novelle per un Anno, which I enjoyed thoroughly and read several times. Somehow I missed the Late Mattia Pascal - the omission has been now rectified.

Dostoevsky writes deeply into the mind of humanity in a way that is both universal and redeeming. This author's effort struck me as entirely self absorbed and unredeemable.
Right in the first few pages the author tells us this is the story of a man who “died” twice. Our hero, or anti-hero, is going nowhere in late 1800’s Italy. He earns a pittance as the librarian in backwater Italian town. He lives with screaming kids, a wife who has lost interest in him and a viscous mother-in-law who hates him. One day while out of town, he learns from newspapers that the decomposed body of a suicide victim down by the watermill in his home town was mistaken for him. He is free! He goes on a gambling spree and actually makes money and creates a new life for himself in a distant town. But living a second life is far from easy and the plot turns into a farcical soap opera (or a real opera, since the work is translated from the Italian).

The book was published in 1904, and like other novels of that era, such as Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment or Unamuno’s Abel Sanchez, there is a lot of exploring of the psychology of the main character dues to the newly developing field of psychology. The author won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1934. It kept my attention and I found the plot fast-paced and with a bit of a mystery to it.
