Divian Brenes I read it when I was around years old. See 1 question about The Late Mattia Pascal…. Lists with This Book. Il fu Mattia Pascal is a novel by Luigi Pirandello. It is one of his best-known works and was his first major treatment of the theme of the mask. The protagonist, Mattia Pascal, finds that his promising youth has, through misfortune or misdeed, dissolved into a dreary dead-end job and a miserable marriage. His inheritance and the woman he loved are stolen from him by the same man, his eventual wife and mother-in-law badger him constantly, and his twin daughters, neglected by their mother, can provide him with joy only until an untimely death takes them.
Death robs him even of his beloved mother. View all 4 comments. Recommended to FeReSHte by: View all 26 comments. Oct 31, Lea rated it really liked it Shelves: One of the few things, in fact about the only thing I was sure of was my name: This is his most-famous novel that has some autobiographical features and is exploring themes of identity, self, freedom, and death that were the most obvious and prominent, spiced up with a humorous note that made this novel relatively light read.
Mattia was full of deep introspective philosophical questions, with a little bit of hopeless, nihilistic world-view. I would say that death and mourning really accompanied him through his childhood and adolescence and shaped his perspective on himself and the world. First the early death of his father, that became a distant, unfamiliar and unrememberable figure, and then death his two baby daughters and his mother, that was a living shadow, without any initiative or authority in her life, that could handle her own life issues and was over-sensitive about Mattia and his brother.
Without an example of how to handle maturely the problems that he was facing in his life, Mattia started to escape into solitude with books and deep abstract thoughts. He felt pretty empty and alone in the world with questions of meaning and direction he should take in his life. I could certainly relate to this type of defense mechanism of avoiding problems and conflicts with other people as I believe many people who adore books and are intellectual types could.
So I read and read, a little of everything, haphazard, but books of philosophy especially. Heavy stuff, I grant you; but when you get a little of it inside you, you grow light as a feather and begin to touch the clouds.
I believe I was always a bit queer in my head. But these readings quite finished me. When I no longer knew what I was about, I would shut up the Library, and go off along a little path that led down a steep incline to a solitary strip of seashore. His own financial and marital situations became a cage that he associated with his own sense of self, and that was the beginning of his longing to escape not only his situation, but his own self.
The idea of a suicide as in killing his former identity rises and he does, helped by the series of the events, he becomes Adriano Meis, the man that travels the world with any obligations to anyone except himself. What could possibly happen to me anywhere worse than what I had been through? Perhaps beyond the horizon ahead a new slavery awaited me–but with heavier chains, I asked myself, than those I had just snapped from my feet?
In time he learns through the pain that there is excruciating loneliness in the absolute freedom, and our longing for connectedness makes us dependant on others and the quest for absolute freedom impossible. We can crave solitude only to get it and learn that we cannot live alone. I was so absolutely free that it was difficult for me to bring myself to any particular kind of life. Fear of being caught again by the tentacles of life would keep me more than ever aloof from men.
I’m worse than dead: Alive as regards the dead, dead as regards the living! What kind of a life can I live, after all? Again alone, all by myself–solitude! Supposing, in a word, that there were no such thing as this death which fills us with such terror, that death should prove to be not the extinction of life but a gust of wind, merely, which blows out the light in our lantern, extinguishes this dolorous, painful, terrifying sense of life we have–terrifying, because it is limited, narrowed, fenced in by the circle of fictitious darkness that begins just where the light from our lantern stops.
Maybe I read it at the wrong time and might change the rating in the future, but for now, 4 stars, even though I would highly recommend this novel to all the people who have a need to think about themselves and the world in a deeper way.
The Late Mattia Pascal
View all 6 comments. Have you ever thought about going to a place where nobody knows you and starting a new life as an entirely new person? Luigi Pirandello makes Mattia Pascal oascal out this fantasy. Great misery has befallen Mattia Pascal and there is no silver lining in sight. Unable to think of anything else to do, he runs away leaving everyone and everything behind.
A few days later on his way back home, he discovers that while he was away a dead body was mistaken for his and he has been declared dead in his town Have you ever thought about going to a place where nobody knows you and starting a new life as an entirely new person?
A few days later on his way back home, he discovers that while he was away a dead body was mistaken for his and he has been declared dead in his town. Out of the confusion this caused emerged one riasunto All the ties of his past life were now broken and Mattia could now re-invent himself and live a new, better life.
And then follows the tragi-comic tale of the late Mattia Pascal. Life experiences have a great say in shaping a person. In trying to erase his past, Mattia Pascal had to lose a great part of himself. His roots were cut-off and he was empty, a mere shadow of a person.
He found himself struggling with the questions of self-identity and his purpose in life. The people he had left behind, the ones who thought he was dead were indeed free of him, in a true sense.
He, on the other hand, could not escape the past life he had lived. Poor Mattia’s miserable adventure at living a new life reminds me of something Fyodor Dostoevsky said in Crime and Punishment: The question of whether free will really exists has been a long standing debate.

And Pirandello’s take on this is in the negative. What Mattia was living was tyranny masked as freedom. How could he ever hope for a true friendship or relationship when he was not free to reveal the real himself to anyone. His freedom tied him in the chains of solitude, complete solitude.
The only life left for Mattia Pascal was that of the ghost of himself. Pirandello’s writing is very accessible and easy to read. It is flavored with wit, irony and subtle humor.
For casual readers, he gives a compelling and well-crafted story. For more serious readers, it is interspersed with intriguing thoughts, reflections on life and some beautiful passages. The novel is a little treat for those who love existential themes and paradoxes.
My copy of the book has a brief beautiful post-script by the author where he talks about art, reality vs. This was in response to critics who had denounced his work for being unrealistic and far from normal life.
Fiction is real, after all! Sono tre momenti che corrispondono anche a tre diversi tipi di romanzo, con la conseguente sperimentazione di tre diversi romanzi. Prima di tutto, bisogna dire che la storia comincia dalla fine. Un personaggio ormai fuori dal tempo e dalla storia, che si muove tra il cimitero e la biblioteca, anch’esso luogo di morte.
Fu mattia pascal: temi e trama
A questi ultimi due capitoli finali si agganciano le due premesse, che anticipano la narrazione. Questi quattro capitoli costituiscono un romanzo dentro il romanzo, che vive in uno stadio di non-vita, di estraniazione rispetto al tempo e si riassutno in uno spazio morto. Dopo tale incipit, si entra nel primo romanzo, in cui sperimenta un genere di romanzo di largo successo: Dall’ottavo al 16esimo capitolo si passa al terzo romanzo.
Lo spazio e il tema mutano completamente. Sono sicura che troverete dei libri che vi lasceranno senza fiato! Come nel racconto “la carriola”, nella quale uno stimato avvocato ha come unica valvola di sfogo il poter far fare la carriola al cane, anche qui abbiamo un protagonista ingabbiato nelle convenzioni sociali e con l’ossessivo desiderio di allontanarle.
