Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you want a biography of Brecht to find out more about his life, not just his literary output, this is NOT the book for you. I finished it and realized I did not know much more about his life than I could have found out online, though I had been treated to quite a sampling of all of his works and some commentary, including extensive synopses.

I consider the above the major flaw in the book. If it had been entitled "The Writings of Bertolt Brecht", I would have known what to expect, as that is really what this book is all about. If you want a biography about the man and his doings, you'll have to look elsewhere.

Format: Paperback
I am peruvian and I read the book in Spanish, thanks to a friend who bought it in Buenos Aires.
I am a Bertolt Brecht's researching friend. This is the way I considered him: like a living one working for the theater.
I found the book nearly excellent...but too much condescending at the "human valorization" of our beloved friend. Ewen looks throught his appreciations too much "innocent" in that respect.
And I have a big question. Ewen says that Brecht "got a Medicin degree".
I do not know if this are translation problems but it is the first time (and I search about living Brecht since 1968)I heard about it....

FROM THE PUBLISHER

Highly acclaimed when it was first published in 1967, Ewen's monumental biographical study of Bertolt Brecht is "the finest critical study of Brecht to date. . . . a worthy appreciation of a towering, poetic and dramatic genius" ("Los Angeles Times").
