PINTER HAROLD AS HAROLD PINTA
Poetry London Volume 6 Number 22 Summer 1951
. London: Editions Poetry, 1951. 40pp. 3 illustrations. Dark green stapled wrappers. Edited by Richard March and Nicholas Moore. Very good copy. Includes the poem "One a Story, Two a Death," which is the third published appearance by Harold Pinter, credited here as Harold Pinta. Other contributors include Herbert Read, Osbert Sitwell, Roy Campbell, D.G. Bridson, William Jay Smith, James Reeves, and Ronald Bottral, and others.
¶ Pinter believed an aunt's erroneous view that the family was Sephardic and had fled the Spanish Inquisition; thus, for his early poems, Pinter used the pseudonym Pinta and at other times used variations such as da Pinto. Later research by Lady Antonia Fraser, Pinter's second wife, revealed the legend to be apocryphal; three of Pinter's grandparents came from Poland and the fourth from Odessa, so the family was Ashkenazic.
