2018 saw 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. 2019 was the year of publication of Brecht and The Writer's Workshop, a collection of Brecht's dramatic fragments, translated into English and collected together for the first time, and Bertolt Brecht's Refugee Conversations, a series of wonderfully comic satiric dialogues, in English for the first time, translated by Romy Fursland and edited and introduced by Tom Kuhn (both Bloomsbury).
