Brecht's Reception in Brazil by Lorena B. Ellis

The search for an explanation for Bertolt Brecht's popularity in Brazil begins in 1500 A.D. with the country's colonization and follows the trends in Brazilian theater that prepared the ground for his reception. This panoramic view accompanies insights into why Brecht's influence, unlike that of other foreign playwrights, was received not as a threat but as a contribution to the national theater of Brazil, and why in the 1960s he ultimately became the country's most frequently staged foreign author.
