Synopsis

Brecht In Context

Brecht In Context $27.99

John Willett

Published by Methuen

In this classic study, John Willett sets in context not only Brecht the theatre practitioner but Brecht the writer and man of his time

Through chapters on Brecht's relationships and attitudes to contemporary politics, English and American literature, Expressionism, music, art and cinema, as well as to such figures as Auden, Kipling and Piscator, the book presents a detailed and wide-ranging account of one of the most significant men of this century

An outstanding introduction to its subject ... will immeasurably enrich Brechtians young and old, especially those who think they know it all' (Times Educational Supplement)

'Economical, witty and unpretentious in a way that Brecht would have liked, but immensely well-informed and thoroughly documented, seems certain to become required reading for anyone seriously interested in the dramatist' (London Review of Books)

'An extraordinarily rich volume, which succeeds in being packed but uncrowded' (New Statesman)

Revised for the centenary of Brecht's birth, containing additional updated material
