Abstract:
Pinter, through the Theatre of the Absurd, has tried to reveal modern man's existential problems. But his approach, though hinging on the same view of existentialism, has more realistically social, psychological, and political orientation in approach to the reflection of the absurd existential problems. He is a practitioner of this new movement. From the view of Camusian Sisyphus, what Pinter has tried to depict in his theater is modern man’s futile efforts to roll the rock and get to the top of the hill. The characters’ absurd endeavour to prove their identities and being reflects the same camusian efforts on the line of bringing back meaning to the absurdity. The current paper has tried to mirror this view of Camus in the behaviour of Pinter’s characters in his plays with the special orientation of The Caretaker.
