From the 1920s through the 1950s, Bertolt Brecht wrote a number of short, fictionalized comments on contemporary life, politics and thought. Through the dramatic events of the first half of the twentieth century, Brecht’s Mr. Keuner offered up aphorisms, stray thoughts and fragments of anecdote that punctured contemporary self-regard about religion, politics, business and more. Deceptively light in tone and bite-size in presentation, Mr. Keuner’s comments bring Brecht’s lacerating wit to bear on a wide range of the half-truths and public lies of his era.
