The Brecht Yearbook Series

Continuing the exploration of Bertolt Brecht’s life and work

The Brecht Yearbook is the central scholarly forum for discussion about German playwright Bertolt Brecht and his career, exploring aspects of theater and literature that were of particular interest to Brecht, especially the politics of literature and of theater in a global context. Volume 33, Gestus–Music–Text / Gestus–Musik–Text, includes essays on Ruth Berlau, one of Brecht’s collaborators, on the relation of text and music, and on the concept of Gestus in Brecht’s work on theater.

Contributors include Robert Cohen, Fritz Hennenberg, Antony Tatlow, Florian Becker, Julie Allen, Darko Suvin, and Sabine Kebir, among others.

Friedemann Weidauer is managing editor of the Brecht Yearbook and associate professor of German at the University of Connecticut. His research focuses on contemporary German culture, and he has published articles on Brecht, Christoph Hein, Wolfgang Borchert, and Jurek Becker.
