Book description

Bertolt 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. This volume includes a specialsection of five articles focused on Bertolt Brecht and Georg Büchner, revolutionary playwright of an earlier era. Also featured are articles and keynote addresses from the International Brecht Society symposium held in Brazil in 2013, under the theme "The Creative Spectator." New research on Brecht and Puccini, Brecht and tragedy, and George Tabori's play Nathans Tod rounds out the volume,along with reviews of recent books and Jost Hermand's tribute to Werner Mittenzwei.
