    The Late Mattia Pascal is a 1904 novel by Luigi Pirandello. It is one of his best-known works. The narrator-protagonist is a young Italian man who, after his father’s death, sees his family ruined by a mean swindler, the man who was supposed to help them. Mattia finds himself in a miserable social condition. He feels that his promising youth has vanished into a dreary dead-end job and a unhappy marriage: His wife doesn’t love him; his mother-in-law, with whom he lives, hates him. So Mattia leaves to Monte Carlo, where he wins a lot of money in a casino.
