Dramas. New York: York Printing Co., 1909.

Description

Flamma's signature is on the copyright page: "This edition is limited to One Thousand copies, each bearing Author's Autograph." One of his volumes of Dramas was issued in New York, in 1909, in a luxurious edition enriched by a letter (little more than a note) from Anatole France, by a note by Prince Trubetzkoy, and a preface in which Felix Rem states that the author “is a keen observer and analyzer of human nature and of the problems which excite the present society.”

The book contains three one-act plays, translated into English: The Queen’s Castle, a philosophical work that “reveals the artificial foundation upon which society has lived and still adheres, and points out very clearly why real happiness is not attainable in our life-time”; Don Luca Sperante (1906), “a vivid portrait of Sicilian character and customs”; The Stranger (1908), the story of an old man forgotten in the world, like an autumnal leaf.

Other dramas by Fiamma are: Piccole anime (Little Souls), in three acts (New York 1912), a middle-class story set in the environs of Milan; La maschera di Amleto (Hamlet’s Mask), 1922, a play in three acts; Dopo la guerra (After the War), 1923); La potenza (Power), 1926; Gli ebrei (The Jews); Suor Maddalena (Sister Magdalene), in three acts; and the one-act All’ ombra della croce (In the Shadow of the Cross).
