Pinter's Comic Play

Front Cover
Bucknell University Press, 1985 - Literary Criticism - 241 pages
Examines the basis of Harold Pinter's tense comedy and how it functions in his plays as well as covering the major drama from The Room to Other Places. Diamond argues that the metaphysical fear and emptiness so characteristic of the Pinter situation are inseparable from his use and abuse of literary and popular comic traditions.
