Everyone knows that Bertolt Brecht was one of the great twentieth-century innovators in theater -- the equivalent in his art of a Picasso or Stravinsky -- but the playwright was also a dazzling writer of stories as well as a lifelong poet. In Collected Stories, which includes the prize-winning "The Monster" and the fragmentary memoir "Life Story of the Boxer Samson-Korner", fans will find the same directness, lack of affectation, and wry humor that characterize his plays. The new edition of Brecht's Selected Poems includes both Brecht's best-known poems, many of which later made their way into his plays, as well as some that have never before been published in this country. For his new adaptation of The Goad Person of Setzuan, Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winner Tony Kushner commissioned a literal translation, which he then refined as any translator would, but with the flair of an innate dramatist.

Nutzerbericht  - Steven - Goodreads

I was surprised at how ordinary these stories were: linear realism, and somewhat boring. Nothing like his dramatic works. Vollständige Rezension lesen

Über den Autor (1998)

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.

Ralph Manheim (1907-1992) was an American translator of German and French literature, as well as occasional works from Dutch, Polish and Hungarian. The PEN/Ralph Manheim Medal for Translation, a major lifetime achievement award in the field of translation. is named in honor of Manheim and his work.

Yvonne Kapp was born Yvonne Mayer in 1903. She worked as, among other things, a writer, translator, aid worker and political activist, and died in 1999.
