"Quattro figlie ebbe e ciascuna regina" stands out from the other texts collected by Gadda in L'Adalgisa (1944) as it is not derived from a previous narrative context and is likely to have been written for the purpose of being included in the collection. This essay reconstructs and illustrates its textual history from its genesis to the final version, focusing in particular on the first, hitherto unpublished draft.
