The Caucasian chalk circle by Bertolt Brecht( Book )

506 editions published between 1901 and 2021 in 17 languages and held by 4,027 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The people of two farms in Georgia (Republic of Russia) debate over land ownership in a socialistic society. The play raises the question of private property; of who bears the right to ownership. Should something (someone) be owned by the one who possesses it? Or, by the one who can make the best use of it?
Mother Courage and her children : a chronicle of the Thirty Years' War by Bertolt Brecht( Book )

246 editions published between 1900 and 2022 in 12 languages and held by 3,914 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Galileo by Bertolt Brecht( Book )

246 editions published between 1947 and 2019 in 11 languages and held by 2,359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Galileo, an eminent professor and scientist in the 17th century Venetian Republic, is short of money. A prospective student tells him about a novel invention, the telescope ("a queer tube thing"), that is being sold in Amsterdam. Galileo replicates it, and offers it to the Republic as his own creation. He gains an increase in his salary, but within a short time his ruse is discovered. Galileo then uses the telescope for careful observations of the Moon and the planets, and he discovers the moons orbiting Jupiter. His observations strongly support Nicolaus Copernicus' heliocentric model of the Solar System, which is counter both to popular belief and to the doctrine of the powerful Roman Catholic Church. He furthermore publishes in vernacular Italian, rather than traditional scientific Latin, thus making his work and conclusions more accessible to the common people. His daughter's engagement to a well-off young man (with whom she is genuinely in love) is broken because of Galileo's reluctance to distance himself from his unorthodox teachings. Galileo is brought to the Vatican in Rome for interrogation by the Inquisition. Upon being threatened with torture, he recants his teachings. His students are shocked by his surrender in the face of pressure from the church authorities. Galileo, old and broken, now living under house arrest with a priest monitoring his activities, is visited by one of his former pupils, Andrea. Galileo gives him a book (Two New Sciences) containing all his scientific discoveries, asking him to smuggle it out of Italy for dissemination abroad. Andrea now believes Galileo's actions were heroic and that he just recanted to fool the ecclesiastical authorities. However, Galileo insists his actions had nothing to do with heroism but were merely the result of self-interest
Brecht on theatre : the development of an aesthetic by Bertolt Brecht( Book )

123 editions published between 1964 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 2,352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume offers a major selection of Bertolt Brecht's groundbreaking critical writing. Here, arranged in chronological order, are essays from 1918 to 1956, in which Brecht explores his definition of the Epic Theatre and his theory of alienation-effects in directing, acting, and writing, and discusses, among other works, The Threepenny Opera, Mahagonny, Mother Courage, Puntila, and Galileo. Also included is "A Short Organum for the Theatre," Brecht's most complete exposition of his revolutionary philosophy of drama. Translated and edited by John Willett, Brecht on Theater is essential to an understanding of one of the twentieth century's most influential dramatists.--Publisher website
Die Dreigroschenoper = The threepenny opera = L'opéra de quat'sous by Kurt Weill( )

155 editions published between 1930 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 1,586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reconstructed in the 1960s, years after the original negative was destroyed by the Nazis, G.W. Pabst's Threepenny Opera remains a deliciously dark film adaptation of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill's brilliant musical
Threepenny novel by Bertolt Brecht( Book )

206 editions published between 1933 and 2018 in 12 languages and held by 1,489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brecht's only novel is, of course, based on his own Threepenny Opera, which was itself based on John Gay's The Beggar's Opera. Set in Victorian London, the novel feels similar to Dickens in many ways, but written with a very dry humour and none of the sentimentality. The plot mostly involves the extremely dodgy business dealings of the characters Peachum and Macheath, along with some equally dubious bankers and financiers - in fact it feels surprisingly relevant to current times! A satirical yet rather subtle attack on capitalist society, Brecht's vision here is of a world in which the poor and weak are continually exploited in the most casual fashion by the powerful and unscrupulous who always come out on top. It's very good writing but may be a little slow-going for some."--Goodreads
The rise and fall of the city of Mahagonny by Bertolt Brecht( Book )

28 editions published between 1955 and 2015 in English and German and held by 1,347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Welcome to Mahagonny, where sin is 'in' and love is always on sale. This Old West boomtown rises from the desert to become a razzle-dazzle mecca for lust and the pursuit of pleasure, where cash is king and poverty is punishable by death

Saint Joan of the stockyards : a drama by Bertolt Brecht( Book )

14 editions published between 1969 and 2014 in English and German and held by 1,148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this version of the story of Joan of Arc, Brecht transforms her into "Joan Dark", a member of the "Black Straw Hats" (a Salvation Army-like group) in 20th-century Chicago. The play charts Joan's battle with Pierpont Mauler, the unctuous owner of a meat-packing plant. Like her predecessor, Joan is a doomed woman, a martyr and (initially, at least) an innocent in a world of strike-breakers, fat cats, and penniless workers. Like many of Brecht's plays it is laced with humor and songs as part of its epic dramaturgical structure and deals with the theme of emancipation from material suffering and exploitation

The good person of Szechwan by Bertolt Brecht( Book )

67 editions published between 1901 and 2016 in English and German and held by 971 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Good Person of Szechwan is one of Bertolt Brecht’s most popular works. When three gods come to earth in search of a thoroughly good person, they encounter Shen Teh, a goodhearted but penniless prostitute, who offers them shelter. Rewarded with enough money to open a tobacco shop, 'Angel of the Slums' Shen Teh soon becomes so overwhelmed by the demands of people seeking assistance that she invents a male alter ego, 'Tobacco K ing' Shui Ta, to deal ruthlessly with the business of living in an evil world. The Good Person of Szechwan is a masterpiece of minimalist design and elegance that shines a light on human nature and social mores."--Publisher's description

Saint Joan of the stockyards by Bertolt Brecht( Book )

165 editions published between 1930 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 894 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Saint Joan of the Stockyards' is set in a mythical Chicago. Brecht's Saint Joan is a Salvation Army lieutenant who challeges the power of Pierpont Mauler, the Meat King. The play is full of pastiche and parody and stems from the time of world economic crisis around 1929-32, a crucial period of creativity and political experiment for Brecht. However, it was never staged in his lifetime. 'Saint Joan of the Stockyards' was first produced in Hamburg in 1959, three years after Brecht's death
