Brecht & Co: Sex, Politics...


Brecht & Co: Sex, Politics...

The result of twenty-five years of research on three continents, "Brecht and Company" is a revolutionary portrait of one of the world's greatest theater artists -- and the people upon whom he built his reputation. A noted Brecht scholar, John Fuegi traces the evolution of Brecht's parasitic relationships and aggressive ambition through close analysis of diaries, letters, and drafts of the literary works, revealing a man who was personally dazzling, a genius at assembling and directing the plays created in his workshop, but ultimately lacking in literary stamina, for which he depended on his lovers. A landmark study about the life and times of one of the most influential figures in twentieth-century theater, “Brecht & Co: Sex, Politics, and the Making of the Modern Drama” will forever change our understanding of Brecht and his oeuvre. Written by John Fuegi. Paperback.
