|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/
"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."
