Event Location: 
Poets House, Spring Street

Four poets gather to speak on the poetry of Bertolt Brecht (1898–1956). A ground-breaking playwright and committed Marxist, Brecht expanded the boundaries of verse by combining biting political satire with such diverse influences as the 16th-century ballad, popular song and the writings of Rudyard Kipling.
