Brecht Collected Plays by Bertolt Brecht
Book DescriptionThe most comprehensive and authoritative editions of Brecht's plays in the English language This second volume of Brecht's Collected Plays brings together some of his most glittering Berlin successes including The Threepenny Opera, The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny, The Seven Deadly Sins, Man Equals Man and The Elephant Calf. The Threepenny Opera is the story of the mercurial beggar turned entrepeneur Peachum and his battles with the criminal Mac "the Knife"; The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny, an operatic satire on the search for an American capitalist utopia; The Seven Deadly Sins is a ballet with songs that predicts the downfall of the petty bourgeosie and was first performed as the Nazis planned their book burning exercise. Man equals Man is an exploration of the theory of equality and The Elephant Calf is a play within a play based on an Indian folk story. The translators include W H Auden and Chester Kallman (The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny; The Seven Deadly Sins of the Petty Bourgeoisie), Ralph Manheim (The Threepenny Opera), Gerhard Nellhaus (Man Equals Man) and John Willett (The Elephant Calf).The translations are ideal for both study and performance. The volume is accompanied by a full introduction and notes by the series editor John Willett and includes Brecht's own notes and relevant texts as well as all the important textual variants.
