Struggles for Power

Part of the Macmillan Modern Dramatists book series (MD)

Abstract

Although struggles for power form the basis of conflict in earlier plays by Pinter, they are especially prominent in the plays analysed in this chapter. In them potential victims fight victimisation, even try to victimise their antagonists; and who is victor, who victim, is often ambiguous. Night School adumbrates this question. Although Walter succeeds in regaining his room, he loses Sally; although she is dispossessed, she does not fall under his control.
