Verlag: Methuen London Ltd, London, first edition, 1990
Zustand des Schutzumschlags: Dust Jacket Included
Cloth, 8vo, 720 pp. "This first comprehensive selection of Brecht's letters to be published in English, translated by Ralph Manheim and edited by John Willett, is based on Gunter Glaeser's East-West German edition of 1981-3, covering the whole of his adult life from his mid-teens until his death. These letters chart Brecht's private and public preoccupations for over forty years. The volume is divided into five main periods: first, the years before Brecht settled in Berlin, including his first marriage and the First World War; second, the Berlin years up to the start of Hitler's Third Reich, the time of collaboration with Kurt Weill and the shift to militant communism; third, the years of exile which cut Brecht off from the German theatrical and publishing world and took him, with other emigres, halfway round the world to California; fourth, the Second World War, which extended for Brecht until his return to Europe in 1947; finally, his last nine years, covering his brief interlude in Switzerland and the period in East Berlin with his historic campaign to rebuild the German-language theatre. 'For anybody concerned with the development of post-war Germany on the one hand, or that of the arts on the other,' writes John Willett, 'there is a fascinating story here: the persistence of Brecht's intention, however his country might evolve, to act as a messenger from the avant-garde theatre before Hitler to the culture of our second half-century.' This major new volume of personal correspondence offers invaluable insights into the mind and life of one of the century's most influential and controversial figures." - from the blurb.
