Brecht – Müller – Poetry – Language

Collaborative session sponsored by the International Brecht Society and the MLA Division of 20th -Century German Literature at the suggestion of the Internationale Heiner Müller Gesellschaft

There are many connections between Bertolt Brecht and Heiner Müller: Müller emulated Brecht as a role model, he extended his work through adaptations or with alternative projects, and as a young lyric poet he also positioned himself vis-à-vis this mentor. We seek papers that examine how Müller’s poetry “translates” Brecht’s poetic language as a mode of textual expression / expansion. Brecht advised those who read his poetry that one should “not forget his main work was in the theater”; this holds equally for Müller. If we take the advice seriously, it suggests that as poets both were attracted to a spoken German that had for centuries drifted apart from the written language. Beyond thematic connections, here we suggest a new way to focus on Müller’s continuation of Brecht’s work.
