Bertolt Brecht continues to be regarded as one of the twentieth century's most controversial and influential writers. His life and work raise important questions about the nature and function of literature and theater, about perception and commitment, about feminist approaches to politics and literature, and about intellectual property rights. The Brecht Yearbook is a venue for discussion about aspects of theater and literature that were of particular interest to Brecht, especially the politics of literature and the politics of theater in a global context. This volume features a dossier on writer-actor-director Manfred Karge, unpublished documents from Brecht's life in Augsburg, new research articles on Brecht, and reviews of recent books. Article topics include Brecht and Adorno in Los Angeles, Brecht and Wagner at the Kroll Opera, Brecht and Abstraction, and transcultural aspects of epic theater.
