HASH(0x931a88f4) out of 5 stars A Nobel Laureate for Good Reason 1 July 2011
By Philip Vassallo - Published on
Format: Paperback
What a dramatist Harold Pinter was. David Mamet and other minimalists of the world stage owe their literary vision to Pinter's trailblazing works for theater. When I saw "The Homecoming," one of his many masterpieces, at the Bouwerie Lane Theater in 1973, my life changed. I had long known that film could so many things that theater could not, but not until this play did I realize theater could do many things that film could not. I strongly recommend any Pinter play, as I have read or seen them all 40-plus of them. But this book is a compendium of his poetry, fiction, and nonfiction, including his political philippics. No doubt, this Nobel laureate is a playwright and screenwriter of the highest level, and while his other writings do not rise to this level, they offer profound insight into Pinter's worldview, dramatic persona, and sudden wit. This book is a must-read for Pinter students

HASH(0x92e87828) out of 5 stars Boldness on paper 23 Dec. 1999
By Harris Samaras - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Harold Pinter speaks his own... dialect... without cliches.
As my native language is Greek I usually find the English language plain... not this time!
Harold Pinter here attempts to remove the blindfold from most of us and on our behalf...
Intelligent and impulsive.

HASH(0x92c04f60) out of 5 stars Pinter's Poetry 14 April 2013
By Proud Godpapa - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a real surprise. You might know Harold Pinter as a playwright but a poet? Most of his poems are thought-provoking and some are just plain funny. This is "must have" for Pinter fans and anyone who enjoys the impact a poem can have.
HASH(0x92ff02dc) out of 5 stars How can you tell which books.... 14 July 2013
By William S Jamison - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is one of those books you just have got to read. We always wonder how we can tell which books are the important ones and which the ones that would be just a waste of time. How can we possibly zoom in on just the books that would do us the most good? Well this is one of the books that helps clarify that. Reading it you just know for sure this was one of the books you could have skipped. But then you hit the essay on Mac. How wonderful! And now the problem comes back. How can you tell which books....

HASH(0x92fb0594) out of 5 stars The political writings are the turn off 13 Aug. 2006
By Shalom Freedman - Published on
Format: Paperback
If Pinter contented himself with Becket- Ionesco- like dialogues of the deaf, poetic renderings of fragmented human inadequacy then it would be possible to appreciate a certain poetic quality in him. But he like a good Stalinist has to dictate for us the nature of our political reality, and in doing so turns out to be a truly one- sided fanatic, choosing what to my mind, are the bad- guys in every conflict in the world. His hatred of America is in my mind sickening and unfair. He makes the best into the worst, and celebrates radical terrorists and other chic dirt.
