About Pinter by Mark Batty
Book DescriptionIn About Pinter, Mark Batty provides a critical study of the work of Harold Pinter, one of our most successful living dramatists. He has compiled a wide-range of material which gives equal emphasis to the study and context of Pinter's writing and the experiences of the theatre practitioners who bring his plays to the stage. Pinter's own responses to his artistic output are gathered, from his first interview in 1959 to the latest interview carried out especially for this book in 2004. From amongst Pinter's collaborators, Clive Donner, Lindsay Duncan, Gari Jones, Peter Hall, David Leveaux, Joseph Losey, Tom Rand and Lia Williams all offer reflection on his work as a writer, actor and director. This stimulating collection of interviews provides a complete guide to Pinter, his work for stage and screen, and his political outlook. 'The strong point of the books in this series is the distinctive voices of the writers, their attitudes and how these are reflected in their plays. Smart chronologies and brief annotated bibliographies give the books a student-friendly feel, and all are readable and jargon free.'Aleks Sierz, Times Higher Education Supplement
