As famous writers, both Franz Kafka and Harold Pinter deal with a variety of issues such as religious, allegorical and psychological ones. In their literary works, they also concentrate on key concepts such as alienation, identity, and absurdity in a world of vacillation and fluctuation. But, what are of great importance to the author of this paper are respectively traces of religion and mode of presentation in both Franz Kafka’s novels and Harold Pinter’s dramas. Since both authors have some writing styles in common, this paper aims at analyzing these common characteristics too.
