Zwischen Elisabeth Hauptmann und Bertolt Brecht: Stilometrische Studien einer Zusammenarbeit

Barth, Florian


In literary studies, the collaboration of Elisabeth Hauptmann and Bertolt Brecht has been discussed intensively since Hauptmann contributed to Brecht’s major plays and prose of the 1920s. Stylometric methods offer a new perspective on Hauptmann’s influence as one can verify and expand the existing knowledge about her share in Brecht’s works. The initial part describes the complexity of the corpus’ textual basis and gives first insights about the plays written collaboratively. Alongside several existing research hypotheses, the article focusses on the analysis of Brecht’s short stories and the specific collaborative work method that he used to have with several of his supporters. Against this backdrop, stylometric approaches like Zeta can shed light on creative parts of the shared writing process of Hauptmann and Brecht.
