The Brecht Yearbook / Das Brecht-Jahrbuch, Volume 37
Edited by Friedemann Weidauer

The Brecht Yearbook is a venue for discussion about aspects of theater and literature that were of particular interest to Bertolt Brecht, especially the politics of literature and the politics of theater in a global context.

The articles in this volume shed new light on Brecht’s concept of alienation Verfremdung, and his relation to cinema, mass media, and dance. The volume also contains extensive work on his collaborators Helene Weigel and Käthe Reichel.

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.
