Abstract

Suffering is the condition of someone who suffers a state of pain or distress. It has a universal nature. Human life is a mixture of sufferings and bliss. Sometimes we can trace back the causes of sufferings but sometimes we can’t find any reason behind the sufferings. It is the absurdity of life; good people subject to suffer and the evil receive the fortune. The absurdity of human condition has been presented very truthfully in Harold Pinter’s early plays. Pinter himself admitted in a dialogue about the play The Birthday Party that the play is a comedy because the whole state of affairs is absurd and inglorious.
