Rigid, psychological and deeply bitter, Pirandello's three short stories tell of the sorrow of unfulfilled, untold love. The Wave, the lead story in this remarkable collection of sterile, frozen love, chillingly introduces the dual themes of frustration and bitterness that preoccupy Pirandello's other tales. In The Signorina, a woman, deeply disillusioned with her suitor's inability to express his feelings, makes a rash decision that will only lead to greater despondency; and in A Friend to the Wives, a society lady recreates herself into the ideal of womanhood, but so much so that she finds herself unattainable.
