THE BRECHT YEARBOOKS

Distributed for the International Brecht Society
Theodore F. Rippey, Editor

For most of the twentieth century, the name of Bertolt Brecht was synonymous with politically committed theater and literature. Brecht himself continues to be one of the twentieth century's most controversial writers. Brecht's 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 the central scholarly forum for discussion about Brecht's life and work, and it is also 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. The Yearbook creates a space for a wide variety of perspectives and approaches, and, like Brecht himself, it is committed to the concept of the use value of literature, theater, and theory.

If you are an author, reviewer, or scholar with a general question on this series, please send all inquiries to the editor, Theodore F. Rippey.
