The paper reports on an experiment conducted with a group of students, aimed at verifying the effectiveness of Sentiment Analysis on Italian literary texts. Students were asked to annotate each paragraph of the short story "Ciàula scopre la luna" (1907) by Luigi Pirandello with a numeric evaluation of the sentiment and a free comment. Analysis of the annotations shows how, while inter-annotator agreement is still low, (a) emotional shifts in the story heighten the agreement in sentiment detection; (b) Sentiment Analysis works better for the comments than for the text, thus confirming its efficiency in reader response studies.
