About Book

Harold Pinter's response to world events is always pure and simple: he writes with an economy that throws the stark light of truth onto any given subject. There is no fudge, no dallying, no compromise.

The eight poems and one speech published here testify to the strength and lucidity of his unwavering view on war and provide a declaration for humanity.
