Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
Pinter's style is so singular that it bears his name!. "Pinteresque" is used to describe an atmosphere of looming, if unspecified, dread!. There is always an overarching threat, but it is rarely addressed with clarity!. Motivations are clouded behind half-finished sentences!. Pinter's dialogue is often halting, with the "Pinter pause" being just as important as the spoken words!.

http://en!.wikipedia!.org/wiki/Harold_Pint!.!.!. - the Wikipedia page is a good place to start, and is a fairly comprehensive list of facts!. To understand his style, I would recommend reading and then watching "The Birthday Party!."Www@QuestionHome@Com

I don't much about him!.Well he is jewish!.
He wrote great 'ping pong' dialogue among characters!. Not many young writers today can do this without being annoying!.
also he apparently never did a second draft of his work!. He got it right from the start!.lol

Heres a wiki link on more info on him!.
