Brecht and Method


Fredric Jameson elegantly dissects the intricate connections between Brecht's drama and politics, demonstrating the way these combined to shape a unique and powerful influence on a profoundly troubled epoch. Through Brecht's entire corpus and a cryptic work, unpublished in Brecht's lifetime, entitled Me-ti; Book of Twists and Turns, Jameson finds Brecht not prescriptive but performative. He sees Brecht's method as a multi-layered process of reflection, reference and self-reference, which tears open a gap for individuals to situate themselves in the third person, and to use that self-projection in history as a basis for judgement.
