AbstractThe World Wars did create many things like chaos, disillusionment and hopelessness among people. In the process they also created several writers who chose to write their hearts out against totalitarianism. The wars influenced the writers so much so that what they wrote and how they wrote were conditioned by their war time experiences. George Orwell wrote when he witnessed the wars and its aftermath. Harold Pinter was a juvenile and underwent the trauma of war which conditioned him as a writer. This research paper seeks to bring out how wars played the central formative influence in these two writers.
