Volume 25 of The Brecht Yearbook celebrates the centenary of Helene Weigel, one of the great actresses of the twentieth century, founder and artistic director of the Berliner Ensemble, key artistic personality in the German Democratic Republic, and wife of Bertolt Brecht. 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.
