a study of gender and domesticity within Harold Pinter’s Rooms
Keywords:Domesticity, Interiority, Ecologies
Harold Pinter’s work opens the walls to the relatively closed rooms of domesticity. The room of the love affair, the unpredictable liaison, the cramped cluttered rooms of poverty and the disaffected. This study uses Pinter’s rooms to analyse existing ideologies of gender, territory, power and domesticity. Pinter’s rooms are more often than not reflections of familiar domestic spaces. This research investigates Pinter’s rooms through a case study of a theatre set for one of his plays and textual analysis of selected works, developing an understanding of how Pinter’s characters reflect behaviours within the domestic environment, mimicking while subverting domestic ecologies.
