This volume of the ""Brecht Yearbook"" brings together insights into Brecht's sources, interpretations of his writings and updates on his reception. Biographical contributions include a letter from Brecht's daughter Barbara Brecht-Schall, a conversation with friends of Brecht's collaborator Hanns Eisler and background material on ""Fear and Misery in the Third Reich"". Articles on Brecht's reception cover a staging of ""Galileo"" at the Berlin Ensemble, a modernized version of ""Die Massnahme"" in Frankfurt/Main under the title ""Das Kontingent"" and Brecht in Australia. Critical interpretations discuss performance issues such as Gestus, masks and staging gender; close readings of poems and plays; and more general reflections on Brecht's relationship to modernism, the philosophical dimension of his theatre practice and his presence on the Internet. The volume concludes with reviews of contemporary scholarly publications about Brecht and 20th-century theatre.
