About the Book


This book is written for the understanding of graduates and post-graduate students as a text book and for the Pinter scholars. The comic and the elements of terror have been explored in the subsequent chapters. No critic in the past and the present has so far investigated the influence of Michael Bakhtin on Harold Pinter who uses black humor and the elements of the grotesque to dramatize the trapped condition of the characters. The game of language of Pinter is unique and is fully investigated in the book.
