Mutter Courage und ihre Kinder, eine Chronik aus dem Dreißigjährigen Krieg. "Was eine Aufführung von Mutter Courage", schrieb Brecht einmal, "hauptsächlich zeigen soll: Daß die großen Geschäfte in den Kriegen nicht von den kleinen Leuten gemacht werden. Daß der Krieg, der eine Fortführung der Geschäfte mit anderen Mitteln ist, die menschlichen Tugenden tödlich macht, auch für ihre Besitzer. Daß er darum bekämpft werden muß."

Mother Courage is the play in which Brecht made his most passionate statement against war, but perhaps Brecht's greatest achievement in the drama lies in the creation of the character of Anna Fierling, nicknamed "Mother Courage," the itinerant trader who drags her canteen through the blood and carnage of the Thirty Years' War and whose fatal error is to believe that she can make the war serve her ends

Baal. Drei Fassungen by Bertolt Brecht( Book )

216 editions published between 1919 and 2017 in 13 languages and held by 1,071 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The classic wandering-poet archetype of the Expressionist movement receives a dark makeover in Bertolt Brecht's 'Baal'. Brecht's first full-length play portrays the seductions and manipulations of a dissolute poet with an inexplicable appeal to women. Baal descends from a civilised dining room to a hut in the woods, leaving a path of destruction in his wake. First performed in Leipzig in 1923, 'Baal' represents an early, almost pre-political stage in Brecht's career, and shows the playwright experimenting with elements that would become his trademarks, such as the use of song. Even as a young writer, however, Brecht provoked controversy: 'Baal' was immediately shut down by order of the city council of Leipzig
