I’ve got nothing to do with this affair. The crux of the relativism paved the way of the blurred boundary between illusion and reality. Read the full review in the Greenfield Daily Reporter. Man is nobody because he is subject to time.
| But the father protests at this mode of the manager. Six Characters in Search of an Author, play in three acts by Luigi Pirandello, produced and published in Italian in 1921 as Sei personaggi in cerca d’autore. If you think of all those illusions that mean nothing to you now, of all those things which don’t even seem to you to exist any more, while once they were for you, don’t you feel that—I won’t say these boards—but the very earth under your feet is sinking away from you when you reflect that in the same way this you as you feel it today—all this present reality of yours—is fated to seem a mere illusion to you tomorrow? Pirandello is working in a time period before the movement of magical realism is invented or conceived.
I really like your focus on Worthen’s argument that these two perspectives are unresolved rather than oppositional. Authors, as a rule, hide the labour of their creations. Emerging as a subset of Postmodern literature, the tradition of “magical realism” re-imagines the Modernist subjects of identity and truth by depicting mundane details of life alongside fantastic or supernatural elements. These works generate their drama out of the theater's elements—in this case, through the conflict between actors, manager and characters, and the missing author.

As time changes the reality of actors also change. Can you tell me who you are?The MANAGER (perplexed, half smiling).
Six Characters in Search of an Author illusion and reality. Ridiculous? Ultimately, for Pirandello, there is no singular reality that can be transposed against a fixed realm of fantasy. Then we perceive that all of us was not in that act, and that it would be an atrocious injustice to judge us by that action alone, as if all our existence were summed up in that one deed. When a man seeks to “simplify” life bestially, throwing aside every relic of humanity, every chaste aspiration, every pure feeling, all sense of ideality, duty, modesty, shame… then nothing is more revolting and nauseous than a certain kind of remorse—crocodiles’ tears, that’s what it is. The father says that the character's reality is real while the Actor's is not. Nothing provokes father's irritation other than the term illusion. Pretence? These notes make it clear that Pirandello’s purpose for dressing the Characters in masks is not to give his play an air of fantasy, but rather to ensure that the audience remains conscious of the fundamental differences between the two groups on the stage. Within that same passage, he notes: “This is the way to bring out the deep significance of the play.

I’m not saying that Six Characters does not have an air of fantasy about it; the basis of the action is a situation that is definitively impossible, so the play could not exist without at least some elements of the supernatural. The Father argues that everyone has a different picture of the world and only falsely believe they are understanding one another when they communicate through language. For Heaven’s sake, don’t say illusion.
