"Until his death and beyond, Brecht courted scandal. He was one of those fertile cultural irritants whose works and views spark debate wherever and whenever they find expression. His work will last, and continue to sit like a thorn in the flesh of our age." - Marianne Kesting
The work of Bertolt Brecht (1898 - 1956) holds up a mirror to the literary and political tumult of the twentieth century. In his dramatic, poetical and theoretical texts he involves himself time and time again with the turbulent events of the times in which he lived.
In co-operation with the German publishers, Suhrkamp Verlag, Chadwyck-Healey are now publishing the first authorised electronic edition of Brecht's works. This edition is based on Bertolt Brecht - Ausgewählte Werke in sechs Bänden - Jubiläumsausgabe um 100. Geburtstag, edited by Werner Hecht, Wolfgang Jeske and Jan Knopf, which collects Brecht's works and writings in six volumes with brief notes on each text.
