The Brecht Yearbooks
Includes a special section on Brecht, Marxism, and ethics.
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. The Yearbook, like Brecht himself, is committed to the concept of the use value of literature, theater, and theory.
Volume 35 has a special section on questions of Marxism and ethics in the work of Brecht. Other contributions focus on the early years of the author and the theory and practice of staging Brechtian plays. The volume also includes two contemporary texts written in the Brechtian tradition.
Friedemann Weidauer is managing editor of the Brecht Yearbook and associate professor of German at the University of Connecticut. His research focuses on contemporary German culture, and he has published articles on Brecht, Christoph Hein, Wolfgang Borchert, and Jurek Becker.
