Luigi Pirandello met Marta Abba an actress in one of his plays in 1925. He fell head over heels for her. She was 25 and he was 58. Over the next ten years before he died in 1935 Pirandello wrote over 600 letters to her. Marta Abba never reciprocated his affection and always kept him at arm's length. But he never gave up trying to woo her.

I gleaned through these hundreds of letters translated by Benito Ortolani in his book, "Pirandello's Love Letters to Marta Abba," and extracted excerpts from eight letters that give a small vignette of Pirandello's obsession with his muse, Marta.

The setting is in the original Italian for baritone and piano.
