Bertolt Brecht

Bertolt Brecht ( ; born Eugen Berthold Friedrich Brecht; 10 February 1898 – 14 August 1956) was a German poet, playwright, and theatre director.

An influential theatre practitioner of the 20th century, Brecht made equally significant contributions to dramaturgy and theatrical production, the latter particularly through the seismic impact of the tours undertaken by the Berliner Ensemble – the post-war theatre company operated by Brecht and his wife, long-time collaborator and actress Helene Weigel.

Famous quotes by bertolt brecht:

    Literary works cannot be taken over like factories, or literary forms of expression like industrial methods. Realist writing, of which history offers many widely varying examples, is likewise conditioned by the question of how, when and for what class it is made use of.
    Bertolt Brecht (1898–1956)

    A man who strains himself on the stage is bound, if he is any good, to strain all the people sitting in the stalls.
    Bertolt Brecht (1898–1956)

    People remain what they are even if their faces fall apart.
    Bertolt Brecht (1898–1956)

    Don’t be afraid of death so much as an inadequate life.
    Bertolt Brecht (1898–1956)

    Food first, then morality.
    Bertolt Brecht (1898–1956)
