Mother Courage and her children : a chronicle of the Thirty Years' War by Bertolt Brecht( Book )

703 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in 14 languages and held by 6,170 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
The good woman of Setzuan by Bertolt Brecht( Book )

539 editions published between 1940 and 2016 in 14 languages and held by 4,577 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Three gods come to earth hoping to discover one truly good person. No one can be found until they meet Shen Te, a prostitute with a heart of gold. Rewarded by the gods, she gives up her profession and buys a tobacco shop, but finds it is impossible to be a good person in a corrupt world without the support of her ruthless alter ego, Shui Ta."--Cover p. [4]
The threepenny opera by Bertolt Brecht( Book )

551 editions published between 1928 and 2015 in 15 languages and held by 4,214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brutal, scandalous, perverted, yet humorous, hummable, and with a happy ending- Bertolt Brecht's revolutionary masterpiece The Threepenny Opera is a landmark of modern drama that has become embedded in the Western cultural imagination. Through the love story of Polly Peachum and "Mack the Knife" Macheath, the play satirizes the bourgeois of the Weimar Republic, revealing a society at the height of decadence and on the verge of chaos. Complemented with music by Kurt Weill, it was one of the earliest and most successful attempts to introduce jazz into the theater, and the song "Mack the Knife" became one of the most popular and widely recorded songs of the twentieth century."--Book cover

Mr. Puntila and his man Matti by Bertolt Brecht( Book )

229 editions published between 1950 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long unavailable in this country, Mr. Puntila and His Man Matti comprises some of the best comedy that Bertolt Brecht wrote for the theater and contains one of his great characters. For his complexity and vitality, Mr. Puntila ranks on a par with Brecht's indelible Galileo and Mother Courage. A hard-drinking landowner, Puntila suffers from a split personality: when drunk, he is friendly and humane; when he sobers up, he is intolerable - ruthless, surly, and self-centered. Oscillating between these two poles, he plays havoc with his workers, his women, his daughter's marriage, and the loyalty of his sardonic chauffeur and valet, Matti. This translation is by John Willett, who with Ralph Manheim is the editor of Brecht's complete dramatic work in English. The joint editors have equipped this volume with a critical introduction and notes, along with Brecht's own notes and variants and the short story on which the play was based

Baal. Drei Fassungen by Bertolt Brecht( Book )

212 editions published between 1918 and 2014 in 13 languages and held by 1,061 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
