Pia Kleber, Colin Visser
CUP Archive, Mar 19, 1992 - Literary Criticism - 236 pages
This volume offers a fresh appraisal of the importance of Bertolt Brecht's theory and practice through the documentation of his influence on other dramatists and directors, the examination of how his plays have been interpreted on stage and how his theories have been modified by his followers, and through a selection of the most challenging recent critical approaches to his work. Consideration is also taken of Brecht's influence on contemporary film criticism and his importance for feminist film and theatre. The book will be of interest to scholars and students of drama, literature, German studies and film.
