Acerca de


The theater of Bertolt Brecht (1898-1956) has long suffered lamentable neglect in the US and the UK ... Fortunately, Barnett champions Brecht's cause with clarity and authority in this slim volume, which this reviewer predicts will soon prove indispensable to any serious Anglophone student of Brecht. ... The author draws on profound knowledge of the material, including Brecht's drama, the crucial Messingkauf fragments, and the history of the Berliner Ensemble. At the heart of the book is the chapter 'Brecht and the Actor,' which elegantly dispatches the fallacy of a Brechtian 'style' and should be required reading in any acting class. Later chapters offer excellent illustrative readings of the application of Brecht's principles to both Brechtian and non-Brechtian drama. Barnett has delivered a vital corrective to the misapprehension of Brecht's theater. Summing Up: Essential. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals; general readers. -- R. Remshardt, University of Florida * CHOICE * Barnett's style of writing is not only crystam clear but also jargon free ... The book is an important and timely contribution to Brechtian scholarship. * Brecht Yearbook * Barnett has done meticulous research and presents a very engaging scholarly argument. -- Nathaniel Nesmith * American Theatre * Brecht in Practice leads its reader seamlessly from Brecht's theoretical concerns to the practical matters with which they are inextricably linked ... [Barnett] writes with enviable clarity and precision ... as a result, successive potentially complex discussions are rendered effortlessly digestible. -- Michael Wood, University of Edinburgh, UK * Modern Language Review *
