Erwin Piscator (1893–1966), Theaterintendant, Regisseur und Schauspiellehrer. 2 (1 ms. und 1 e.) Briefe mit e. U. [New York] und Dillenburg (Hessen), 1944 und 1956. Zusammen (¾+1=) 1¾ SS. auf 2 Bll. Gr.-4° und gr.-8°. Jeweils mit (1 ms. bzw. 1 e. adr.) Kuvert. – An seine Schülerin, die amerikanische Dichterin Ruth Herschberger (geb. 1917): „I don’t like to be quoted with a sentence that is so pedestrian – which I certainly hope is not one of my characteristics. Perhaps Edgar Allan Poe could not have been a poet if he had not been a drunkard, or perhaps he would not have been a drunkard if he had not been a poet; perhaps he would have been a drunkard under different social conditions, or perhaps he would have been a drunkard under any conditions [...]“ (Br. v. 21. Jui 1944). – „On the very sad day of Brecht’s death arrived your letter. This great man, great poet and man of obligation and responsibility for all that has happened in his and our life is gone. I am sorry, I can’t fullfill your wish, for that you better turn to his wife, Helene Weigel, Berliner Ensemble, Theater am Schiffbauerdamm – or his editor – in the case you want to avoid to go in touch with the eastern Zone, Suhrkamp-Verlag, Frankfurt a/Main. Chicago is very important, and my Dramatic Workshop and all my students are very dear to me [...]“. – Der Brief v. 21. Jui 1944 auf Briefpapier mit gedr. Briefkopf des Dramatic Workshop an der New School for Social Research in New York.
