Πώς μπορείτε να ξέρετε τα πάντα για τον Μπρεχτ χωρίς να περάσετε τη ζωή σας μες στα θέατρα ή μέσα στα αρχεία του Βερολίνου, και χωρίς να δώσετε στον μπρεχτολόγο σας την ευκαιρία να σας κάνει επίδειξη γνώσεων;

Δυο μεγαλοφυείς άγνωστοι θα σας κάνουν να ξαναζήσετε, ο ένας με την μετά κόπου συγκρατημένη πολυλογία του κι ο άλλος με τον οίστρο των περιγραφών του, την πορεία αυτο

Ίσως το καταλληλότερο βιβλίο για να με βοηθήσει να καταλάβω αυτόν τον σπουδαίο άνθρωπο και τον ρόλο του στο θέατρο.
Η αφορμή ήταν τα ποιήματά του,αλλά τώρα ενδιαφέρομαι πραγματικά να διαβάσω και τα θεατρικά του έργα!Ακόμα πιο πολύ βέβαια να έχω την τύχη να δω και κάποιο απ'αυτά.
Η διαφορές του Παραδοσιακού θεάτρου με το Επικό θάτρο του Μπρεχτ είναι τόσο έντονες που με βοήθησαν να κατανοήσω και τις ιδιαιτερότητες του ελληνικού αρχαίου δράματος.Τα μηνύματα που θέλει να περάσει,ο απώτερος στόχος του

I really enjoy these publications. Essentially graphic novels without claiming to be, they mix cartoonish pictures with collage, plus history and historical perspective (such as important world events or thinkers that might have effected the artist at the time) in with the biography.

This synopsis of Brecht's life and work incorporates graphic novel elements. But don't worry - the vocabulary and concepts are not dumbed down in the slightest. I have always struggled to understand Brecht plays, and will likely continue to do so, but the explanations in this book will definitely help.
