Philosophically complex and tinged with irony and absurdity, the stories in this collection focus the everyday lives and struggles of individuals as they try to find the meaning in life. Originally meant to consist of 24 volumes with a short story for each day of the year, Pirandello's masterpiece is comprised of the 233 tales he was able to write before his death. Although he was a writer of novels and short stories, Pirandello was best known as a playwright of tragic farces, and this three-volume boxed set of masterfully written short stories offers the reader access to a different side of this Nobel laureate. Filosóficamente complejos y marcados por lo irónico y lo absurdo, los cuentos de esta colección se enfocan las vidas y luchas cotidianas de individuos mientras intentan encontrarle el significado a la vida. Originalmente concebida como una colección de 24 volúmenes con un cuento para cada día del año, esta obra maestra de Pirandello consiste de los 233 cuentos que logró escribir antes de morir. Aunque escribió novelas y cuentos, Pirandello es mejor conocido como dramaturgo de tragedias fársicas, y estos tres volúmenes agrupados en un estuche le ofrecen al lector acceso a otra cara del ganador del Premio Nobel.
