Abstract:

"The German poet, playwright, and theatrical reformer who developed the drama as a social and ideological forum is the subject of this program, in which those who knew him discuss his life and many works. Excerpts from plays such as Mother Courage and her children, The life of Galileo, The good woman of Setzuan, and Antigone highlight the development of Brecht's austere form of irregular verse. A later work, A little Orgnum for the theater, is the embodiment of Brecht's idea of true Marxist drama."--Container.
