Resumen:   This research has the goal of describing and analyzing the history of the reception of Brecht's work in Brazil, having as a guideline the process of translation, which began in Brazil in 1948. The theory that helps us to accomplish this task is the Descriptive Translation Studies, more precisely the Polysystem Theory by Itamar Even-Zohar, the translation norms by Gideon Toury, and the concepts of rewriting and patronage by André Lefevere. In addition to this base theory, the work of Gérard Genette, Paratexts, supports the identification of distinct periods of reception, also the agents involved in each period and the turning points that led to new approaches to the work of Brecht in Brazil. Besides the bibliography about Brecht in Brazil, the corpus of this research is composed by news published in two major Brazilian newspapers, Folha de São Paulo (before 1960 it was called Folha da Manhã morning edition and Folha da Noite evening edition) and O Estado de Sao Paulo, which have all editions in digital format available online. By analyzing the approach translators had towards Brechts work in each period in Brazil, it is possible to analyze the productivity each different approach had in comparison to Brechts own theory for theater and translation. Therefore, a thorough analysis is made of this material in each period: 1) 1948 to 1958 period in which there is a cultural translation of Brechts ideas, but there are no plays on stage and no texts published, in this period Brecht is considered a classic author; 2) 1958 to 1968 the first plays by Brecht are taken to stage, and few texts are published, the agents involved face a lot of technical problems to accomplish this task but nonetheless they comply with the image stablished in the previous period, which contradicts Brechts conception of theatre and translation; 3) 1968 to 1998 there is a turning point to Brazilian theatre scene marked by extreme experimentation, the Oficina Theatre is the major exponent of this period, Brechts work is no longer considered a classic, which cannot be tempered with, and this approach is the closest that Brazil gets to Brechts ideal of theatre; 4) after 1998 with more technical resources Brazilian theatre once more approaches Brecht as a classic and try to recreate his plays in Brazil.
