Harold Pinter’s Nobel speech
Harold Pinter won the Nobel Prize for literature this year, and his acceptance speech was quite a doozy. Made big news in the UK apparently, but of course here in the US it barely produced a whimper. I think I heard a bit of it on Democracy Now, that was about it.
Anyway, it’s long, but worth a read. You probably will agree with some of it, and disagree with some of it, but it will make you think and it’s well written. His lecture is called “Art, Truth & Politics”, and deals a lot with things the United States has done that perhaps we shouldn’t get away with. Check it out!
