Eugen Berthold Friedrich Brecht (10 February 1898 – 14 August 1956), known professionally as Bertolt Brecht, was a German theatre practitioner, playwright, and poet.

Eugen Berthold Friedrich Brecht (10 February 1898 – 14 August 1956), known professionally as Bertolt Brecht, was a German theatre practitioner, playwright, and poet. Coming of age during the Weimar Republic, he had his first successes as a playwright in Munich and moved to Berlin in 1924, where he wrote The Threepenny Opera with Kurt Weill and began a lifelong collaboration with the composer Hanns Eisler.

John Willett (1917-2002) was a noted scholar, author and translator. First of all, it should be mentioned that there is no theatre untouched by Bertolt Brecht's theories and practices on theatre. In the 21st century, the way we look at theatre has its roots in Brecht's Aesthetic. Now, this book is like the Brecht Bible essentially.

Home Browse Books Book details, The Theatre of Bertolt Brecht: A Study from Eight. The Theatre of Bertolt Brecht: A Study from Eight Aspects. My own interest in Brecht goes back to about 1938. Early in 1956 I was encouraged by Miss Margaret Mynatt and Mr Hans Hess to plan this book, whose publisher enabled me to spend two periods of about a fortnight each with the Ensemble in Berlin. During the first of these I saw Brecht at Buckow, where he was meant to be resting from his illness, and was given every help by Frau Weigel and Frau Hauptmann.

First of all, it should be mentioned that there is no theatre untouched by Bertolt Brecht's theories and practices on theatre. In the 21st century, the way we look at theatre has its roots in Brecht's Aesthetic.

Now, this book is like the Brecht Bible essentially. Packed with all his views and opinions on the theatre, society and culture around theatre, acting, etc. Its big, dense and the type set is small enough to make you cry sometimes because he just never seems to stop.

I had a hard time following and understanding it, but that is no fault of this edition, but more so the long winded thoughts of Brecht. The core of his ideas and points are there, they just need to be searched for. Sometimes he makes it very clear what point he is trying to make, but sometimes you have to wade through his thoughts until he nails it for you. I think for having never read it before, I wasn't sure what was the most important part of some of the arguments he was making, but overall I know this is a valuable book to own. I think it requires guidance from someone who has studied Brecht a lot, which I fortunately had. There is a Brecht for Beginners I think out there that is a GOOD COMPANION to this book.

Good collection of Brecht's views on theater theory.
Redfury
Great for quotes by Brecht, and for understanding his version of absurdism, though ther are some strange "interviews" that don't accurately quote him, but thry are entertaining.

This is an insightful text explaining Brecht's views on theater through essays and notes. I recommend this book to anyone interested in learning more about Epic Theatre.

This is a huge selection of essays written over many years. This not necessarily something you may want to just sit down and read straight through. If you do, you will find many contradictions over the years. At any rate, it is a very formative collection of Brecht's work, and certainly a must have for anyone who studies theatre or the arts in general.

Great book. Brecht is a good writer with intelligent ideas.
Jwalextell
Excellent book. Great notes and edition.
Brecht was an internationally acclaimed playwright that not many have heard of. Was he good? Well, I'd hope so if he was known on an international scale. The problem was the he was born much before his time. However, if he wasn't he wouldn't have experienced the Nazi regime which make this book one of the better reads. You're able to see & experience the passion he has behind his words. Granted, you lose a lot in translation, but hopefully this will come to you without losing the sense of enlightenment which it is sure to deliver.
