Er… no they’re not.
🙂 I’ve been contemplating Pinter’s Nobel lecture – 2005. It begins:
“In 1958 I wrote the following:
‘There are no hard distinctions between what is real and what is unreal, nor between what is true and what is false. A thing is not necessarily either true or false; it can be both true and false.’
I believe that these assertions still make sense and do still apply to the exploration of reality through art. So as a writer I stand by them but as a citizen I cannot. As a citizen I must ask: What is true? What is false? . . . ”
There’s something in here about artistic and political truth, which are not always the same.
