Ostensibly against communism , this committee also targeted intellectuals. By the time of his death in , Brecht had established the Berliner Ensemble and was regarded as one of the greatest theatrical practitioners. As an artist, Brecht was influenced by a diverse range of writers and practitioners including Chinese theatre and Karl Marx.
Bertolt Brecht's lesser-known plays-his early anarchistic texts and his pre-Nazi "crudely propagandistic" plays-are downplayed in lieu of his more famous epic-theatre experiences: Mother Courage, The Good Person of Szechwan, and The Three fenny Opera. Challenging the convention that scholars can divide Brecht's artistic evolution into the three aforementioned periods, Oesmann shows that these early plays are the point of origin of Brecht's revolutionary theatrical ideals, slowly helping the playwright to take up his place in the theatrical canon.
By noting the ideological and literary context of these plays as well as by examining the plays themselves, Oesmann offers a solid and engaging critique that proposes that Brecht's "lesser" plays seek to destroy traditional notions of history, explore notions of reality, comprehend the "cultural poverty" of post World War I Germany, and challenge the idea that progress is an inevitability of the human condition.
Perhaps most surprising is the commonality shared by Adorno and Brecht relating to the notion of historical narrative and truth: Adorno's concept of involuntary memory through which the subject can perceive true history is echoed in Brecht's theatrical convention aimed at showing the pain of the past in order to disrupt the consistency of historical narrative. Oesmann goes further by noting that it is Brecht's theatre which acts "to open the stage for the aesthetic, social, and historical truth content so essential to Adorno's philosophy and to do so for a much broader range of people than Adorno could ever speak to" An unknown error has occurred.
