Harold Pinter's astonishing 46 minute Nobel lecture Art, Truth & Politics can be downloaded, and watched as a video, from the Nobel Prize website. Pinter's essential Various Voices: Prose, Poetry, Politics 1948-2005 is out now and a celebratory collection of four of his plays (The Birthday Party, No Man's Land, Mountain Language and Celebration) is being published by Faber, as a limited edition boxed set, later this month. In Carcanet's wonderful The Tenth Muse: An Anthology Antonia Fraser, Pinter's wife, picks a handful of her favourite of her husband's poems.

  1. Thanks for this, Mark. It's a shatteringly true speech, and among the most powerful I have ever heard. I appreciate having a chance to access it easily.
