    Pinter Quits Playwriting

    An "overwhelmed" Harold Pinter won the Nobel Prize for literature and then promptly announced he was giving up playwrighting.In awarding the prize, the Swedish Academy praised Pinter, 75, for restoring the play as an art form.
    "I have written 29 plays and I think that's really enough," said Pinter after a champagne celebration with his wife Lady Antonia Fraser at their London home."I think the world has had enough of my plays. "I shall certainly be writing more poetry and I'll certainly remain deeply engaged in the question of political structures in this world." Pinter is one of the most influential British playwrights of his generation and famous for work such as The Room, The Birthday Party, and The Caretaker.He has written more than 25 plays plus cinema screenplays including The French Lieutenant's Woman, The Accident, The Servant and The Go-Between.Pinter is credited with the invention of a new dramatic style known as the comedy of menace.The literary term Pinteresque describes a kind of challenging psychological drama featuring characters that may represent each other's fears, insecurities or latent sexuality.The Academy said: "Pinter restored theatre to its basic elements: an enclosed space and unpredictable dialogue where people are at the mercy of each other and pretence crumbles."
