Meyerhold. Eatons analysis places Brechts dramatic theory and practice in proper historical perspective, thereby increasing our understanding of the role of the Russian avant-garde in shaping modern theater. She clearly demonstrates the extent to which Meyerholds influence on Brecht has been underestimated and she argues that the preservation of Meyerholdian theater should be numbered among Brechts significant contributions to modern drama.
