Since their first meeting in Santa Monica, California in 1942, Eric Bentley has been Bertolt Brechts other, offstage voice. Just as Brecht reshaped modern theater, Bentleys writings on Brecht helped shape his reputation in the United States and the rest of the world. Bentley on Brecht represents a lifetime of critical and personal thoughts on both Brecht as friend and Brecht as influential literary figure. Brought together in this volume are Brecht-Bentley correspondence, Bentleys personal recollections of his years with Brecht, including Charles Laughtons production of Galileo, Brechts testimony before the House Un-American Activities Committee, and Bentleys analysis of Brechts plays.
