Fear and Misery in the Third Reich

Methuen Drama, 01.04.2003 - 144 Seiten
6 Rezensionen

Brecht's series of twenty-four interconnected playlets describe events which took place in ordinary German households in the 1930s. They dramatize with clinical precision the suspicion and anxiety experienced by ordinary people, particularly Jewish citizens, as the power of Hitler grew.

This volume is translated by John Willett, joint editor of Brecht's collected plays in English and is accompanied by an extensive introduction and commentary.

"What Brecht shows us here is more or less harmless by comparison with what came later. Perhaps this is its greatest strength: we know the results, what we are looking for is the beginnings."-Max Frisch

Über den Autor (2003)

Bertolt Brecht (1898-1956) was a German poet, playwright, and theater director. An influential theater practitioner of the 20th century, Brecht made equally significant contributions to dramaturgy and theatrical production, the latter particularly through the seismic impact of the tours undertaken by the Berliner Ensemble the post-war theater company operated by Brecht and his wife and long-time collaborator, the actress Helene Weigel with its internationally acclaimed productions.
