|Title:||Punch and Pinter: Pre-literary techniques in the plays of Harold Pinter|
|Keywords:||English Language and Literature;English Language and Literature|
|Abstract:||<p>This thesis examines the plays of Harold Pinter through his use of basic pre-literary theatrical techniques. The techniques are specifically outlined in terms of such pre-literary theatricals as Punch and Judy puppet shows and vaudeville variety acts. The thesis contends that Harold Pinter's drama is directly based on standard theatrical elements, and can be understood more precisely according to them than in accordance with literary modes or terms such as allegory, imagery, metaphor or symbolism.</p>|
