Description : Pinter's dramatic figures are curiously perspectival creatures who exist on several levels at once, and who by virtue of the deliberate distortion that went into their creation show close affinities with Mannerism. Harold Pinter: Towards a Poetics of His Plays examines Pinter's stage plays from The Room to One for the Road, as well as several plays for radio and television, by focusing on their Mannerist traits; it presents its conclusions within the larger context of an inquiry into the principles and rules that can be said to inform Pinter's «open» drama.

Description : Pinter in Play provides a survey of diverse readings of the Harold Pinter canon organized around and presented in terms of the major critical schools of the past twenty-five years, from New Criticism to deconstruction to poststructuralism. Reflecting on the cultural, personal, sociological, and philosophical contexts of these diverse critical perspectives and the critics who express them, this book is equally about the act or the art of literary criticism and itself an important work of literary criticism. Drawing on interviews with Pinter scholars, Susan Hollis Merritt shows how critics "play" with Pinter and thereby seriously enforce personal, professional, and political affiliations. Cutting across traditional academic and nonacademic boundaries, Merritt argues that greater cooperation and collaboration among critics can resolve conflicts, promote greater social equity, and foster ameliorative critical and cultural change.

Description : In Understanding Harold Pinter, Ronald Knowles presents a comprehensive, accessible introduction to the writing of the heralded British dramatist whose works for stage, screen, television, and radio have been performed throughout the world. Describing the playwright's rejection of early-twentieth-century sentimentalism and his departure from the 1950s "kitchen sink" realism associated with Arnold Wesker and John Osborne, Knowles explains why audiences at large have had difficulty understanding and sympathizing with Pinter's work. In a chronological survey, Knowles analyzes Pinter's plays - from The Room (1957) to Moonlight (1993) - as well as his films - from The Servant (1963) to The Trial (1993). Knowles divides the writer's voluminous output into two categories, "comedies of menace" and "memory plays." Identifying the fundamental structure of these works, he discusses their anti-sentimentalism, and comments on the themes - including menace, verification, identity, and power struggle - that have dominated Pinter criticism. In addition to reviewing past critiques, Knowles offers fresh appraisals of Pinter's plays and screenplays. He touches on Freudian and absurdist criticism but devotes his primary efforts to original applications of more recent theoretical methods, including new historicism, audience reception, structuralism, feminism, gender studies, and postmodernism.
