British Playwright Awarded 2005 Nobel Prize For Literature

Harold Pinter (75), the British playwright, whose works include The Birthday Party, The Dumb Waiter and The Caretaker, has been awarded the 2005 Nobel prize for Literature.
The Nobel jury said that the playwright "uncovers the precipice under everyday prattle and forces entry into oppression’s closed rooms".

His efforts in promoting human rights were also praised by the jury, which was rumoured to be split over the decision.
