Description
BERTOLT BRECHT
The course discusses Bertolt Brecht in his various roles as playwright, poet, dramaturg, and critic. His theory of the epic theater is used as a backdrop to interpret his plays. His polemic against traditional theater is viewed not merely within the narrow constraints of Marxism, but in the wider context of Avant Garde theater. His influence on theater of the Twentieth Century outside of the German-speaking world is also analyzed.
