This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.

In this singular book written during the Second World War, the renowned playwright and poet Bertolt Brecht has taken photographs from newspapers and popular magazines and montaged short epigraph poems to each, in a unique attempt to understand the truth of war using mass media.
From catastrophic bombings, to propaganda portraits of leading Nazis, to scenes of unbearable tragedy on the battlefield, this is an anthology of horror, but accompanied by Brecht's razor-sharp deconstruction of what we see, through his taut and direct poems. Part Dada project, part proto- Situationist detournement, this book reveals the horror of war, and the cynicism in which it can be presented to us.
