Quoted in Willett and Manheim , viii—ix. See the article on Edward II for details of Brecht's germinal 'epic' ideas and techniques in this production. See Sacks , xviii , Willett , , and Willett and Manheim , vii. At the end of the — season, both his and Carl Zuckmayer 's his fellow dramaturg contracts were not renewed. Willett , Zuckmayer relates how: "Brecht seldom turned up there; with his flapping leather jacket he looked like a cross between a lorry driver and a Jesuit seminarist.
Roughly speaking, what he wanted was to take over complete control; the season's programme must be regulated entirely according to his theories, and the stage be rechristened 'epic smoke theatre', it being his view that people might actually be disposed to think if they were allowed to smoke at the same time. As this was refused him he confined himself to coming and drawing his pay.
In his book The Political Theatre , Piscator wrote: "Perhaps my whole style of directing is a direct result of the total lack of suitable plays. It would certainly not have taken so dominant form if adequate plays had been on hand when I started" , Brecht claimed to have written the adaptation in his Journal entry , but Piscator contested that; the manuscript bears the names "Brecht, [Felix] Gasbarra, Piscator , G.
Grosz " in Brecht's handwriting Willett , See also Willett , 90— Brecht wrote a sequel to the novel in , Schweik in the Second World War. In relation to his innovations in the use of theatre technology, Piscator wrote: "technical innovations were never an end in themselves for me. Any means I have used or am currently in the process of using were designed to elevate the events on the stage onto a historical plane and not just to enlarge the technical range of the stage machinery. My technical devices had been developed to cover up the deficiencies of the dramatists' products" "Basic Principles of a Sociological Drama" ; in Kolocotroni, Goldman and Taxidou [, ].
The similarities between Brecht's and Piscator's theoretical formulations from the time indicate that the two agreed on fundamentals; compare Piscator's summation of the achievements of his first company , which follows, with Brecht's Mahagonny Notes : "In lieu of private themes we had generalisation, in lieu of what was special the typical, in lieu of accident causality. Decorativeness gave way to constructedness, Reason was put on a par with Emotion, while sensuality was replaced by didacticism and fantasy by documentary reality.
See also Willett , — When they met, Brecht was 29 years old and Weill was Brecht had experience of writing songs and had performed his own with tunes he had composed; at the time he was also married to an opera singer Zoff. Weill had collaborated with Georg Kaiser , one of the few Expressionist playwrights that Brecht admired; he was married to the actress Lotte Lenya. Willett and Manheim , xv. In Munich in Brecht had begun referring to some of the stranger aspects of life in post- putsch Bavaria under the codename "Mahagonny". The Amerikanismus imagery appears in his first three "Mahagonny Songs", with their Wild West references.
With that, however, the project stalled for two and a half years.

It was first published in the GDR in after Helene Weigel had insisted on its inclusion in a collected edition of Brecht's works. Silcox's "What's Wrong with Alienation? Philosophy and Literature. Willett observes: "With Brecht the same montage technique spread to the drama, where the old Procrustean plot yielded to a more " epic " form of narrative better able to cope with wide-ranging modern socio-economic themes.
That, at least, was how Brecht theoretically justified his choice of form, and from about on he began to interpret its penchant for " contradictions ", much as had Sergei Eisenstein , in terms of the dialectic. It is fairly clear that in Brecht's case the practice came before the theory, for his actual composition of a play, with its switching around of scenes and characters, even the physical cutting up and sticking together of the typescript, shows that montage was the structural technique most natural to him.
Your help is greatly appreciated, Bill. Only some of them were for contests and only those that were received notice that they were published in anthologies by the National Library of Poetry or whatever alias the website was using at that time.

Examples of this idiom are the injunctions to be 'as wise as serpents and as harmless as doves,' 'death on a pale horse,' 'the man of sorrows', the 'many mansions of heaven;' proverbs 'as the hairs on our heads are numbered,' 'pride goes before a fall,' 'the wages of sin is death;' adverbs and pronouns as 'verily, whoso, forasmuch as; phrases as come to pass, children's children, the fat of the land, vanity of vanities, outer darkness, the apple of his eye, Ancient of Days, the rose of Sharon.
Brooker writes that "the term 'alienation' is an inadequate and even misleading translation of Brecht's Verfremdung. The terms 'de-familiarisation' or 'estrangement', when understood as more than purely formal devices, give a more accurate sense of Brecht's intentions. A better term still would be 'de- alienation '". Comparative Literature Studies. Amsterdam: Rodopi.
