With plays, poetry, essays, and screenplays, "The Essential Pinter" is an indispensable companion for anyone wishing to delve into the astonishingly dazzling and frequently ominous world of Harold Pinter.


"Harold Pinter is generally seen as the foremost representative of British drama in the second half of the twentieth century. That he occupies a position as a modern classic is illustrated by his name entering the language as an adjective used to describe a particular atmosphere and environment in drama: 'Pinteresque.'... Pinter restored theater to its basic elements: an enclosed space and unpredictable dialogue, where people are at the mercy of each other and pretense crumbles. With a minimum of plot, drama emerges from the power struggle and hide-and-seek of interlocution. Pinter's drama is perceived as a variation of absurd theater, but has later more aptly been characterized as 'comedy of menace, ' a genre where the writer allows us to eavesdrop on the play of domination and submission hidden in the most mundane conversations."
