Clothes (Don’t) Make the (Wo)Man: Costume as Mask and Identity in Enrico IV and Nostra Dea

PSA - Pirandello Society Annual XXIV is now in print and contains my article "Clothes (Don’t) Make the (Wo)Man: Costume as Mask and Identity in Enrico IV and Nostra Dea." From a semiotic perspective I show how these two well-known plays by Pirandello and Bontempelli have several so far unnoticed points in common. At the same time, one can precisely differentiate the two protagonists for whom clothes become a form of identity.
