One of the greatest poets and dramatists of our century Observer

About the Author

Bertolt Brecht (1898-1956) is acknowledged as one of the great dramatists whose plays, work with the Berliner Ensemble and writing have had a considerable influence on the theatre. His landmark plays include The Threepenny Opera and, while exiled from Germany and living in the USA, such masterpieces as Life of Galileo, Mother Courage and The Caucasian Chalk Circle.

Format: Paperback
Brecht perfectly displays the rise of a true evil, Hitler in the disguise of a gangster from the Bronx. Written in sheer briliance, the word play creates pain stabbingly funny moments immeadiately turning into sinister situations chilling to the bone.
Reading the play you are left to wonder why nothing was done to stop Ui (Hitler), but as Brecht highlights in his epilogue, there will always be people like this in society, and we had a lucky escape.

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By "jabbsx" on 10 Nov. 2004
Format: Paperback
Yet another fantastic read from Bertolt Brecht. Set in the 1940's a frightening but brilliant political inside into Hitler's rise to power, portrayed in the character 'Arturo Ui'.
For some the book will merely be a challenging play, for others an important shift in history of which you can relate to present-day issues. Either way Brecht designed this play to make his audience think and question his work. Although you might find the play heavy at times, this is rescued by a chronological table situated at the back of the book, which runs parallel with the chapters in the play.
Brecht lovers a definite thumbs up - arguably one of his finest works!

Format: Paperback
The play describes the emergence from economic depression of corruption and the murderous protectionism that lead to totalitarian dictatorship. A brilliant satire on Hitler and his miserable band of fascists rise to power.
