The Life and Work of Harold Pinter
"Sinopsis" puede pertenecer a otra edición de este libro.
"A smart, absorbing blend of criticism and biography that demythologizes the writings of Britain's premier postwar dramatist . . . Billington combines intelligence with accessibility to create a fine theater book for the general reader.""--Kirkus Reviews" "The book's most fascinating sections explore the sources, literary and biographical, of Pinter's evocative, cryptic plays.""--Booklist" "Enthralling. Calmly, judiciously written, it takes Pinter from his Hackney childhood and Jewish upbringing to his current eminence and political activity; it handles his acting, writing and directing; it treats his plays, screenwriting, poetry and fiction; and discusses many of his friendships and both of his marriages . . . Billington's book is an open-sesame into Pintor's work . . . To the extent that Billington provides answers about Pinter's life and art, his is a valuable book. And absorbing: I found it virtually unputdownable.""--Financial Times" "Through his work as a playwright and director, Pinter has raised out theatre to the highest point that it has achieved since Edwardian times . . . No reader of this book will doubt, by the end of it, that its subject is a man of the highest artistic stature.""--Sunday Telegraph" "An outstandingly good book.""--Independent "Reseña del editor:
This is the most comprehensive and insightful account yet published of Harold Pinter's life, from his Hackney childhood to his current position as Britain's most eminent playwright, and of his work as writer, actor and director. Coolly and judiciously, Billington explores his subject's plays and political activity, his screenwriting and his poetry, and discusses his friendships and both his marriages. This is a book that both confirms Pinter's stature and explains the reasons for it.
