"Verwisch Die Spuren!": Bertolt Brecht's Work and Legacy : a Reassessment
Robert Gillett, Godela Weiss-Sussex
Rodopi, 2008 - Literary Criticism - 359 pages
This volume presents a cross-section of current Brecht studies, reflecting a variety of approaches and perspectives ranging from detailed exegesis of particular texts to cultural criticism in the broadest sense. It provides analyses of Brecht's work and investigates his pervasive influence in 20th century literature. The studies collected here cover the whole of Brecht's career, from the early one-acter "Kleinburgerhochzeit" of 1919 to the "Sinn und Form" years immediately preceding his death, as well as his use of tradition and his legacy. By way of redressing a tendency in Brecht reception to regard him mainly as a dramatist, the volume covers novels, poetry, film, photography, journalism and theory as well as plays.
