The Messingkauf Dialogues $15.99

Bertolt Brecht - trans John Willett

Published by Methuen

Written between 1939 and 1942 these are the longest but in some ways the most light hearted of all Brecht's discussions of theatre

Here Actor, Actress, Dramaturg (or literary adviser) and Electrician argue with the Brechtian Philosopher who wants to exploit their talent for his own purposes

The result is a lively debate about the place of art in society. This new edition also includes Brecht's own Notes as well as a Commentary
