About the Author:

Betty Nance Weber was on the faculty at the University of Texas at Austin until her death in 1979. She had published on German theater and literature and had worked with experimental theater groups producing original scripts. Her study of the chalk circle plays, Brechts Kreidekreis: Eine Interpretation, was one of the volumes chosen to commemorate the eightieth anniversary of Brecht’s birth. Hubert Heinen is a professor emeritus of Germanic languages at the University of Texas at Austin. He is the coauthor of Basic (Spoken) German Grammar and Paths to German Poetry and has published a number of translations of German works.

Review:

Splendid articles that reflect the continuing dialogue about the genesis of Brecht’s works and their impact on contemporary theatre, litereature, and film . . . Though many subjects are discussed, the most significant are on Brecht and the Soviet theatre and on major productions of Brecht in the Soviet Union since 1957. There are also fine evaluations, however, of the political climate and experimental staging, and of Brecht and the cinema. The volume is one of consistent brillance and fresh views.

(Theatre Journal)

Fill[s] a gap in the English Brecht criticism and provide[s] the English speaking reader with a framework for analyzing the political dimension of Brecht’s work. As such, it should be hailed as a welcome addition to the secondary literature in this field.

(German Quarterly)
