The Brecht Yearbooks

This collection focuses on the intersections of Bertolt Brecht's work with that of other writers and artists, examining in particular questions of collective creation. Further essays discuss production, Brecht and the Jews, and connections with artists as diverse as Eisler, Felsenstein, Busoni, Anna Seghers, Breughel, and Shakespeare. A selection of theoretical essays, a discussion forum, and book reviews conclude the volume. Many of the essays are based on papers from the Ninth Symposium of the International Brecht Society held in Augsburg, Germany, in March, 1995.

Maarten van Dijk is professor of drama at the University of Waterloo, Canada.

Distributed for the International Brecht Society
