It is reasonably certain that he participates as a representative in one of the workers and soldiers councils of Augsburg, ie the first institutions – labor power fetuses which established in Germany according to Soviet model.

    Writing: Legend of the Dead Soldier, Baal. It was written in 1918-20, when Brecht was a 20-year-old student at Munich University,in response to the expressionist drama The Loner (Der Einsame) by the soon-to-become-Nazi dramatist Hanns Johst.

    The play is written in a form of heightened prose and includes four songs and an introductory choral hymn (“Hymn of Baal the Great”), set to melodies composed by Brecht himself.[1] Brecht wrote it prior to developing the dramaturgical techniques of epic theater that characterize his later work, although he did re-work the play in 1926.
