The development and expansion of political aspects metaphorically latent in Pinter’s earlier plays will be discussed in this paper through Ashes to Ashes with reference to his political writings such as “Writing for the Theatre,” “A conversation between Harold Pinter and Nicholas Hern,” and his Nobel Lecture. These are considered an important source of Pinter’s interest in politics that constitutes his characteristic. We need to focus on Pinter’s languages. because it functions as a significant strategy in storytelling of the memory on the Holocaust in Ashes to Ashes and because politics constitutes the sub-text of Pinter’s plays. The difference of Rebecca’s and Devlin’s storytellings of their memories generates subversive politics to break the closed system of power structure. This paper will argue that Pinter, advocating politics as an activist, still leads audiences to becoming a true citizen with a political vision and also contributes to the realization of real truth during the era of catastrophe.
