The essay aims to document the influence of Friedrich Nietzsche's "Jenseits von Gut und Böde" (1886) on Luigi Pirandello's "Quaderni di Serafino Gubbio operatore" (1915; 1925). Through the intertextual comparison, an attempt will be made to elaborate on the reading of some key themes and symbols in the novel with reference to Nietzsche's thought about nature, cruelty and civilization.
