British Playwright Harold Pinter wins 2005 nobel Prize in literature

The Dumb Waiter

On October 13th, Harold Pinter, British playwright, won the 2005 Nobel Prize in literature.  The Swedish Academy who decides the winner said he was an author "who in his plays uncovers the precipice under everyday prattle and forces entry into oppression's closed rooms".

When Pinter found out Thursday morning he told reporters that he was speechless.

Some of the works that the Swedish Academy said made him the winner was for the works “The Dumb Waiter” (1957) , and “The Caretaker” (1960). 

Pinter has announced he would focus on political writings back in March of 2005.  In 2003, Pinter has published a collection of anti-war poetry about Iraq.  His later plays were not as well received as his early works due to the political themes. He has also publicly called for Blair to be impeached.



Harold Pinter was born in 1930 and is now 75 years old.  Pinter started out his career as an actor working in repertory theatre.  He acted in all mediums, including stage, film, radio and television.  In 1957, he had his first produced theatrical playwright production called “The Room”.  He has written movie screenplays “The French Lieutenant's Woman," "The Accident," "The Servant" and "The Go-Between".

Amazon.com has used copies available of "The Dumb Waiter" and also has DVD movie of "The Servant", which received a 5 star rating from customer reviews.


Pinter is the tenth playwright to win the Nobel Prize in literature since its first award in 1901.
