"From the Preface:

"When this book was first published in November 1959, just over three years after Brecht’s death, some critics wondered whether its attempt to present a coherent account of the external circumstances of his life and a critical assessment of his work might not be premature; it was known that there was still an immense amount of unpublished work in the Brecht Archives and that his letters and diaries, containingthe full story of his life, were extant, although clearly not available for publication for a very long time to come. I had nevertheless undertaken to write my book; for I was convinced that it was important to draw the main outlines of Brecht’s image there and then, not only because public interest in Brecht in this country was so great that a comprehensive survey of his personality as a man and as a playwright was badly needed, but also because it was quite clear that in the case of politically so controversial a figure as Brecht an antidote in the formation of legends, on the left as well as on the anti-Brechtan right, was urgently wanted . . . “
