This chapter will discuss the early life and education of one of Italy's foremost novelists — Luigi Pirandello. The chapter also tackles the era, the different Italian literary movements, and the writing principles of authors during the time of his birth. This chapter discusses Pirandello's struggles as he was still in the early process of becoming a novelist. In addition, this chapter discusses the difference of Luigi Pirandello as a real writer to other prominent colleagues during his time. It discusses how Pirandello brought his characters to life in a way that he himself personified each and every single character to add emphasis on the roles played by each. The chapter also provides overviews on different characters that Pirandello made and their impact on the modern literary movement. The chapter also includes some of Pirandello's most notable works that would eventually set the trend for a higher form of Italian literary writing.
