Using a feminist stylistic approach, the topic of female portraits in Harold Pinter's Old Times was the focus of this thesis. The theoretical portion of the thesis focuses on Harold Pinter's biography, his writings, and the history of feminism, particularly feminism theory. The chief piece of the investigation comprises of the understanding of Old Times according to the feministic perspective, including subjects like bisexuality, orientation jobs, and female garments. The postulation investigated how the place of ladies in English society created over the entire course of time, and what social shows meant for ladies' lives. The review contends that the suggested reader of Old Times - as appeared in the novel - is a women's activist one, as well as it investigates the chance of this inferred women's activist reader being a female. Harold Pinter looked at women's needs for independence, their struggles and positions in literary history. Gender relations, class hierarchy, and the effects of war are some of his themes. He emphasizes the psychological aspects of her characters rather than the plot and characters in the majority of his novels. The protagonist of Old Times lives through centuries, and Harold Pinter makes it possible for his character to become a woman halfway through the book. Through the lines, dialogue, and events, the novel is directly concerned with the position and mentality of women. The chief inquiry of the current review centers around the viewpoints through which orientation is introduced.
