Publisher's Summary. The Late Mattia Pascal (Italian: 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 paradox “form/life”. The narrator-protagonist is a young Italian man who, after his father’s death, sees his family ruined by a mean swindler. "The Late Mattia Pascal" is, I fear, about one-fourth too long; it gets overladen with details while Pascal is "falling in love" under his alias Adriano Meis in Roma. But the flaw isn't grave enough to spoil the book, or to justify knocking a star off my rating of it/5.
