Widely celebrated as the greatest German playwright of the
twentieth century, Bertolt Brecht was also, as George Steiner
observed, "that very rare phenomenon, a great poet". Hugely
prolific, Brecht wrote some 2,000 poems and songs-though fewer than
half were published in his lifetime and early editions were
extremely selective. Now, award-winning translators Tom Kuhn and
David Constantine give us the most comprehensive English collection
of Brecht's poetry to date. Written between 1913 and 1956, these
poems celebrate Brecht's unquenchable "love of life, the desire for
better and more of it" and reflect the technical virtuosity of an
artist driven by bitter and violent politics, as well as by the
untrammelled forces of love and erotic desire. The Collected Poems
of Bertolt Brecht is a monumental achievement and a reclamation.
