Abstract:

"German theater has always held a special place in the life of the German-speaking community, which consists mainly of Germany, Austria, and part of Switzerland. More than merely entertainment, it was a crucial component of culture and often influenced society and politics. And its influence gradually reached much further, with the emergence of such outstanding playwrights as Goethe, Schiller, Hauptmann, and Brecht, as well as exceptional dramas such as Faust and The Threepenny Opera, which have been translated and staged around the world." "Historical Dictionary of German Theater provides entries on significant playwrights, directors, and actors; notable plays; and major styles. The emergence of the tradition is followed in the chronology and described in the introduction. The bibliography provides further resources."--BOOK JACKET.
