The presentation contains a small overview of one of the most popular Absurd Plays, Harold Pinter's The Birthday Party, a Modernist Literature Text. The information collected for the presentation is based on the Books, e-data and my interpretation of the text. I'm very happy to upload my first presentation. I'll be more happy to see your comments.
