Bertolt Brecht and Roger Howard: Revolutionary Theatre and Socio-Political Worries

Akram Shalghin

Abstract


This paper deals with the question of revolutionary literary texts. It examines the painful, or even brutal, measures that could be taken at times when the revolutionary figures depicted in the literary texts are themselves subject to control by a party line.  While this paper shows that the noble intentions would not suffice for conducting revolutionary acts in Brecht, it also argues for the necessity of considering even tiny steps as positive historical contributions in Howard.
