Forthcoming Publications

2018 will see the publication of Brecht's Collected Poems in English translation - over a thousand poems, translated and introduced by Tom Kuhn and David Constantine (W.W. Norton) and the Brecht Yearbook: Recycling Brecht (Camden House), a collection of essays arising from the conference held in Oxford in 2016. Next year we will publish The Writer's Workshop, a collection of Brecht's dramatic fragments, translated into English and collected together for the first time (Bloomsbury).
