R.I.P Harold Pinter

The world has lost another great artist and another genius poet. His works taught me one of the most important lessons that I use in my own work to this day: Less is More.
Sadly and ironically, it would have been nice to have a bit more of him. Thank you Mr. Pinter for all your work. Your plays will live on forever.

LONDON — Harold Pinter, praised as the most influential British playwright of his generation and a longtime voice of political protest, has died after a long battle with cancer. He was 78."Pinter restored theater to its basic elements: an enclosed space and unpredictable dialogue, where people are at the mercy of each other and pretense crumbles," the Nobel Academy said when it announced Pinter's award. "With a minimum of plot, drama emerges from the power struggle and hide-and-seek of interlocution."
