Teaching without pupils... A poem from the Brechtian's exile.

Brecht during his exile in Denmark. Seated close to him, Hellen Weigel.

Sometimes life outside your country and your artistic field seems unbearable, sometimes is only a melancholic sentiment of emptiness and impotence.

These poems (quoted by Hans Burger) were written by Brecht during his exile in Denmark:

 "Teaching without pupils/

Writing without fame/

Are difficult."

"There speaks the man to whom no one is listening:/ 

He speaks too loud / 

He repeats himself / 

He says thing that are wrong: 

/ He goes uncorrected."
