Enrico Four

Luigi Pirandello

Translated by Robert David MacDonald
PaperBack (01 Feb 1990)

Premiered in this translation by the Citizens Theatre Company, Glasgow. In Enrico Four a man believes he is Henry IV, Holy Roman Emperor. But is he?

Pirandello’s study of perceptions has become a twentieth-century classic which invites us to consider our personal madness in offering a different face to everyone we meet.

'A cunning mouthpiece for the author’s vitriolic hatred of pretence…. The translation by Robert David MacDonald allows some Italian phrases to remain intact which adds colour and vivacity' Scotland on Sunday
