Luigi Pirandello (1867–1936), was an Italian dramatist, novelist, poet and short story writer. 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.

"This fine example of ‘oddness in action’ is this photo of a guy named Hugo Ball elaborately reciting a poem called Karawane. Hugo Ball, Hans Arp, Tristan Tzara und Marcel Janco were the founders of the famous Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich (Switzerland) which is known to be “the cradle of dadaism”. Dadaism was a cultural movement that involved visual arts, literature, poetry, theatre and graphic design." – via @susanasuju
