The New Sobriety" is Willett's favoured translation of the German 'Neue Sachlichkeit' - variously translated elsewhere as 'new objectivity', 'new matter-of-factness', or my personal favourite, 'new dispassion' (not because it is more accurate, but because it brings home the paradox of an exalted anti romanticism).

The period between the end of World War I and Hitler's ascension to power witnessed an unprecedented cultural explosion that embraced the whole of Europe but was, above all, centered in Germany.

John Willett (24 June 1917 – 20 August 2002) was a British translator and a scholar who is remembered for translating the work of Bertolt Brecht into English.

Willett argues, in fact, that the New Sobriety's existence in Weimar was bound up with the very conditions that led to Fascism and, thus, to its own downfall; and this is the sense in which his book is a study of the relation between art and politics.

The period between the end of World War I and Hitler's ascension to power witnessed an unprecedented cultural explosion that embraced the whole of Europe but was, above all, centered in Germany. Germany housed architect Walter Gropius and the Bauhaus movement; playwrights Bertolt Brecht and Erwin Piscator; artists Hans Richter, George Grosz, John Heartfield, and Hannah Hoch; composers Paul Hindemith, Arnold Schonberg, and Kurt Weill; and dozens of others. In Art and Politics in the Weimar Period , John Willett provides a brilliant explanation of the aesthetic and political currents which made Germany the focal point of a new, down-to-earth, socially committed cultural movement that drew a significant measure of inspiration from revolutionary Russia, left-wing social thought, American technology, and the devastating experience of war.
