The Brecht Yearbook / Das Brecht-Jahrbuch, Volume 38
Distance and Proximity
Edited by Theodore F. Rippey

The Brecht Yearbook

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.

This volume features a dossier on writer-actor-director Manfred Karge, unpublished documents from the Brecht Archive in Berlin, new research articles on Brecht, and reviews of recent books. Article topics include Brecht and Adorno in Los Angeles, Brecht on abstraction, and transcultural aspects of epic theater.


Theodore F. Rippey is associate professor of German at Bowling Green State University. His research focuses on sound and media in the interwar era, and he has published on Brecht, Fritz Lang, Kurt Tucholsky, and Siegfried Kracauer.
