What confirmed, what disturbed, his view of the state of English drama when, two
years later, at the Intimate Theatre, Palmers Green, he coupled routine detective
roles with Cliff in Look Back in Anger.>1 Allowing that nothing could be as
pressing as the cricket scores, we do know that he turned to Kafka, Yeats and
Beckett because their presence is palpable in the subsequent plays of his alter

In einem kleinen Aufsatz über »Pinter and Cricket« (In: »Cambridge Companion
to Harold Pinter«) behauptet er, nur über sein enormes CricketInteresse könnte

entscheidende Devise »Learning how to fool«: Lernen, wie man den Gegner
austrickst. Und das habe lebenslang auch für ihn selbst und ebenso für Harold
Pinter gegolten, ...

2 In his nondramatic writing, interviews, and lectures, Stoppard himself may enact
the conflicting characters who make conflicting statements. The simile of
Shakespeare as decanter is reductive, an equivalent of the ashtrays and other
inanimate objects to which Stoppard repeatedly compares inert play texts. But
Shakespeare is also "World Champ," an athlete who has defeated all competitors
and attracted spectators like Stoppard, the cricket fan. In Stoppard's plays, this
ambivalence ...

... of theatricality, and this was still more the case with the commercially run,
public readings that swelled the finances of popular novelists, notably Dickens.
But by the time audiences heard Dickens read from his favourite works (the death
of Nancy from Oliver Twist (1837–9) was his tour de force) many of them would
have already seen full, sometimes unauthorised, dramatic adaptations of the
same texts: Nicholas Nickleby (1838–9) as Smike; The Cricket on the Hearth (
