Description:

The fifth volume in the Collected Plays series brings together two of Brecht's best-known plays, Life of Galileo and Mother Courage and Her Children . Life of Galileo , which examines the conflict between free inquiry and official ideology, contains one of Brecht's most human and complex central characters. Mother Courage is also one of Brecht's great creations: she clings to her livelihood-her canteen wagon-in this "chronicle play of the Thirty Years War," while one by one she loses her children to the war. This volume, edited and introduced by John Willett and Ralph Manheim , gives full translations of each of the plays and includes Brecht's own notes and all the most important textual variants.

Bertolt Brecht was born on February 10, 1898 in Augsburg, Bavaria, and died on August 14, 1956. He was a German playwright, theatre director and Marxist. The modest house where he was born is today preserved as a Brecht Museum. Brecht formed a writing collective which became prolific and very influential. He wrote many lyrics for musicals and collaborated with Kurt Weill to create Die Dregroschenoper -- the biggest hit in 1920s Berlin. Brecht experimented with his own theater and company -- the Berliner Ensemble -- which put on his plays under his direction and which continued after his death with the assistance of his wife. Brecht aspired to create political theater, and it is difficult to evaluate his work in purely aesthetic terms. Brecht died in 1956.

John Willett (1917-2002) was a noted English author and the translator of Brecht's poems and songs.
