Book Description

2 Dec 1997 Faber Contemporary Classics

This revised third volume of Harold Pinter's work includes The Homecoming, Old Times, No Man's Land, four shorter plays, six revue sketches and a short story. It also contains the speech given by Pinter in 1970 on being awarded the German Shakespeare Prize.

The Homecoming

'Of all Harold Pinter's major plays, The Homecoming has the most powerful narrative line... You are fascinated, lured on, sucked into the vortex.' Sunday Telegraph

'The most intense expression of compressed violence to be found anywhere in Pinter's plays.' The Times

Old Times

'A rare quality of high tension is evident, revealing in Old Times a beautifully controlled and expressive formality that has seldom been achieved since the plays of Racine.' Financial Times

'Harold Pinter's poetic, Proustian Old Times has the inscrutability of a mysterious picture, and the tension of a good thriller.' Independent

No Man's Land

'The work of our best living playwright in its command of the language and its power to erect a coherent structure in a twilight zone of confusion and dismay.' The Times

5.0 out of 5 stars Old Times 28 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Pinter is one of the bestb dramatists of our time. he has captured the languge for all time and is alternately very funny and very disturbing. Readin a play is nothing like seeing it ut it does allow you to go back and study how it works.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grappling with Pinter's monologues 17 Feb 2013
By jbroad
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Whenever I watch a Pinter play on stage, I am driven back to looking at a printed version of the text, to a kind of mental exercise which consists in supplying some of the ideas which the characters don't ever get around to saying. I recently attended 'Old Times' at the Harold Pinter Theatre and have found myself looking again and again at the text to analyse the ways in which the characters avoid communicating with one another for most of the play. There are so many hidden depths in Pinter's work. It's quite a challenge.
