Harold Pinter on International Stages

Tomaz Onic

Harold Pinter is inarguably one of the most influential modern British dramatists. The horizon of his literary, cultural and political activity stretches far beyond the borders of his homeland, as well as beyond the theatrical and literary world. The essays in this volume deal with the reception of his literary (and political) heritage in several European and non-European Countries, offering previously unpublished research. They bring together a variety of aspects focusing on Pinter in the former region of Eastern Europe like Hungary, Poland, Turkey, Croatia, Macedonia and Slovenia, where his literary ideas as well as political activism seem fully applicable. They are balanced by selected Western perspectives, including Italian, British and American ones.

The editor wishes to thank the authors of individual chapters for their enthusiastic response to the invitation for papers, and for sharing with the readers of this monograph their original contributions regarding Pinter’s literary and non-literary heritage in their own countries. Their insights into different aspects of Pinter studies offer a rich variety of previously unpublished research.

I would also like to thank the reviewers of these research papers for their valuable suggestions and their time invested in the reviewing process.

Last but not least, I thank my dear professor, mentor, colleague and friend Darja Hribar, who is unfortunately no longer with us. Were it not for her, who directed and guided me in my choice of research field, my scholarly and consequently editing activities like this one would very likely be in a different area of literature. ← 7 | 8 →
