Verbal and non- verbal linguistic devices in Pinter’s ‘ The Birthday Party’.

  1. 1. Topic : Verbal and non- verbal linguistic devices in Pinter’s ‘ The Birthday Party’. Name : Kinjal Patel Paper Name: The Modernist Literature Paper No: 9 Sem : 3 Roll No: 14 Year: 2014 Submitted to: Department of English Maharaja Krishnakumarsinhji Bhavnagar University. Follow me: patelkinjal.u21@gmail.com http://www.slideshare.net/123kinjal
  2. 2. About author • Harold Pinter was born in 1930 and died in 2008. • He was a Nobel Prize winning English playwright, screen writer, director and actor. • He was one of the most influential modern British dramatist who wrote for round about 50 years.
  3. 3. • Differs from other absurdist's Beckett Ionesco Pirandello
  4. 4. His well known works • The Birthday Party ( 1957 ) • The Homecoming ( 1964 ) • Betrayal (1978 )
  5. 5. Harold Pinter • “Drama is about conflict and degrees of perturbation disarray, I’ve never been able to write a happy play”.
  6. 6. The Birthday Party • Second Full length play • Most frequently performed plays • About Stanley Webber
  7. 7. Language in The Birthday Party • Use of structural language • Lexical items • Simple dialogues • Oral language • Non verbal device
  8. 8. Use of oral language • Start with daily Chores
  9. 9. The device of repetition in the dialogue • For instance, at the beginning of The Birthday Party, Meg, having served Petey his cornflakes asks: • “ Are they nice”? Petey replies: “ Very nice.” Meg then says: “ I thought they’d be nice.”
  10. 10. The play shifts from casualness towards absurdity • “ Meg: (…) What are you reading?
  11. 11. Cohesion and coherence • Here there is a lack of cohesion and coherence. Now let’s see the conversation where McCann and Goldberg cross examine Stanley so that he should collapse. • Video • Video
  12. 12. • Conversation creates bafflement confusion, uncertainty and tension
  13. 13. Organize a party • Meg tells Goldberg and McCann that she is going to organize party for Stanley’s birthday where Stanley denies his birthday. • video
  14. 14. Non verbal device
  15. 15. Use of pauses and silences • To give a character time to think before saying • To avoid conversation • To show extreme emotional strain • As an answer to rhetorical question • To see the effect of what is said. Example • “ There are places in my heart… where no living soul… has… or can ever … trespass.”
  16. 16. Controlled dialogue • Communication but weapon • Silence of fear • Fear of intimacy • “Pinter’s dialogue is as tightly perhaps more tightly controlled than verse.”
  17. 17. • “ Every syllabus, every inflection the succession of long and short sounds, words and sentences, is calculated to nicety.” --- Martin Esslin
  18. 18. Conclusion • There is more to Pinter’s language than merely accurate observation. • In fact what sounds like tape-recorded speech is highly stylized, even artificial. • Pinter’s dialogue is tightly controlled. Every syllabus, every inflection, the succession of long and short sounds, words, and sentences are calculated to nicety. • Pinter used language in a dramatic way as a vehicle and instrument of dramatic action.
