 About the Book 

...this impressive selection of Bertolt Brechts poetry...roughly 500 poems...shows convincingly that his ouevre is one of the major poetic achievements of the present century. The editing, with excellent notes, excerpts from Brechts own views about poetry and Mr. Willetts concise introduction is exemplary. Most important, the translations by 35 poets, among them H.R. Hayes, Peter Levi, Christopher Middleton, and Naomi Replansky, maintain a high standard of accuracy and often convey a very clear idea of the texture and feeling of the German. --Stephen Spender, The New York Times Book Review
