A new critical biography of the influential playwright, writer, poet and activist, Bertolt Brecht (1898 - 1956). Known for his experimental, modernist Epic Theatre and its 'alienation effect', Brecht sought to break down the division between high art and popular culture. The Threepenny Opera, his collaboration with composer Kurt Weill, was a milestone in musical theatre, and plays like Mother Courage and Galileo changed the course of modern drama and aesthetic theory. Philip Glahn looks at Brecht's life and works through his plays and stories, poems and political essays in order to illustrate how they trace a lifelong attempt to relate to specific social, economic and political circumstances.
