It might do me a lot of good if I were to work that way, gloomy and bullheaded, laying no stress on inspiration, and spitting on flashy ideas. But this can only be achieved by description, one has to know a lot, have a certain amount of experience behind one and possess a particular style that can e ‘applied’ to anything. In any case one needs to beware of ‘wit’, of candied fruit, tasteful decorations and smooth finish. The overriding thing must be the greatness of the conception, the dark piled-up mass, the trembling light over everything and the fearlessness of the human heart which shows things as they are and likes them that way.


The more central the place taken by the plot, the richer and more powerful are the developments open to its exponents. They haven’t got faces, they only have voices, they don’t keep speaking, they just answer, they don’t wear the plot like a rubber skin but wrap it round themselves like a broad garment full of folds.

- Bertol Brecht
