These fifty poems–among them many ballads that later hauspoetille part of The Threepenny Opera, Mahagonny, and Baal–reveal the tremendous range and versatility of Brecht’s expression.
His first and best book of poetry, Manual of Piety uses the traditional form of devotional literature to provid Book jacket: His first and best book of poetry, Manual of Piety uses the traditional form of devotional literature to provide both an irreverant spoof and a serious critique of the post-World War I European and more specifically, German culture that gave rise to fascism. His characteristically sly wit combines with mordant social commentary to make Manual of Piety Brecht at his most hilarious–and also his most brutally incisive.

Very direct, and always the right word at the right moment. He was a fantastic writer as well as a playwright – and even more remarkable as a poet. I LOVE his poetry. Jun 23, Joshua Wilson rated it ahuspostille liked it. It’s super fucking bleak and that’s great. I got into the habit of reading one a day and then reading the original german version to see how it changed the flow and to be honest the translations worked hauspostillle well.
Lots of stuff about post war germany, lots of insight. There is this sense of beauty that supersedes it though. I think that’s why I liked it. Aug 11, Mike Cahoon rated it really liked it. These poems are like condensed Brecht plays.
With all the cynicism, brutality, humor, and social political themes boiled down into verses. Reading them are a great way to get that Brecht-y feeling you get from Threepenny or Mother Courage.
Less epic for sure but the feeling is there. Sep 20, Matthew rated it it was amazing. Witty, shocking, thoughtful, musical– Brecht knows how to lay ’em down. The hardcover edition I have has a big cross in relief on the cover.

From his late twenties Brecht remained a life-long committed Marxist who, in developing the combined theory and practice of his ‘epic theatre’, synthesized and extended the experiments of Piscator and Meyerhold to explore the theatre as a forum for political ideas and the creation of a critical aesthetics of hauspostillle materialism. Brecht’s modernist concern with drama-as-a-medium led to his refinement of the ‘epic form’ of the drama which constitutes that medium’s rendering of ‘autonomization’ or the ‘non-organic work of art’—related in kind to the strategy of divergent chapters in Joyce’s novel Ulyssesto Eisenstein’s evolution of a constructivist ‘montage’ in the cinema, and to Picasso’s introduction of cubist ‘collage’ in the visual arts.
