Important Brecht scholars, friends, and collaborators of Weigel examine her multifaceted career in articles and interviews. A special "Forum" section is devoted to the exchange of letters between Brecht, Steffin, and Arnold Zweig, edited by Heidrun Loper.

Judith Wilke is a Brecht scholar and an editor at Campus Verlag in Frankfurt am Main. Maarten van Dijk is professor of drama at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada.
