Literature is a creative work of art transported through the medium of language. It is a medium which reflects the contemporary issues of the society, issues that involve economy, politics, struggle, leadership problems, matters of security, and violence. This means that there is a relationship between art and life; hence, literature deals with people and their experiences in a given environment. Harold Pinter is a literary artist who is seen as a committed person who uses his work to advocate for a classless society, satirize the evils of corruption, exploitation and oppression; and push the victims into a struggle towards release from all the forces that weaken their existence and language. Pinter’s play pursues to test our perceptions of ourselves as victims. Whenever any act of violence performer against us as Kurds, we remember this outstanding play that truly represents all the violence against us; against humanity, culture, language, and women. This paper, therefore, aims at showing the relationship between Pinter’s Mountain Language and the true experience of Kurds in the north of Iraq. This is done through the linguistic analysis of the language used in the play. It also, represents the strong and close ties between literature and life through the medium of language.
