About this product
- DescriptionBertolt Brecht continues to be regarded as one of the twentieth century's most controversial and influential writers. His life and work raise important questions about the nature and function of literature and theater, about perception and commitment, about feminist approaches to politics and literature, and about intellectual property rights. The Brecht Yearbook is a venue for discussion about aspects of theater and literature that were of particular interest to Brecht, especially the politics of literature and the politics of theater in a global context. The articles in this volume shed new light on Brecht's concept of alienation, Verfremdung, and his relation to cinema, mass media, and dance. The volume also contains extensive work on his collaborators Helene Weigel and Kathe Reichel.
