Theatre of the Absurd: One typewriter, two typists?

It's a "photomontage" of Luigi Pirandello, from the Mondadori Portfolio. He is typing on his Underwood 3 portable while being dictated to by himself.
Pirandello was an Italian dramatist, writer and poet, born in Agrigento, Sicily, on June 28, 1867. He was awarded the 1934 Nobel Prize in Literature for his "bold and brilliant renovation of the drama and the stage". Pirandello's works include novels, hundreds of short stories and about 40 plays, some of which are written in Sicilian. Pirandello's tragic farces are often seen as forerunners of the Theatre of the Absurd. He died in Rome on December 10, 1936, aged 69.
