Bertolt Brecht was a German poet and playwright who wrote and produced plays that he hoped would instruct as well as entertain. His goal was to make audiences think about what might be, rather than what was. In 1926 he named his experiments "epic theater." His work, influenced by German social theorist Karl Marx, was often violent and chaotic. It became known throughout the world and would influence generations of playwrights.
