'I can sum up none of my plays. I can describe none of them, except to say: That is what happened. That is what they said. That is what they did.'

Harold Pinter on being awarded the German Shakespeare Prize in Hamburg 1970

You can't easily sum Pinter up in a journalistic phrase, though many have tried with tags such as 'Master of the Pause' or 'Comedy of Menace'; but if I had to describe him to someone totally unfamiliar with his work it would be as an instinctively radical poet whose chosen medium is drama.'

Michael Billington 1997
