Product Description

Great product!

This volume offers a major selection of Bertolt Brecht's groundbreaking critical writing. Here, arranged in
chronological order, are essays from 1918 to 1956, in which Brecht explores his definition of the Epic Theatre and his
theory of alienation-effects in directing, acting, and writing, and discusses, among other works, The Threepenny Opera,
Mahagonny, Mother Courage, Puntila, and Galileo. Also included is "A Short Organum for the Theatre," Brecht's most
complete exposition of his revolutionary philosophy of drama.

Translated and edited by John Willett, Brecht on Theater is essential to an understanding of one of the twentieth
century's most influential dramatists.
