Bertolt Brecht

Published by Methuen

The seventh volume of Brecht's Collected Plays contains the plays which Brecht wrote during his six-year stay in the United States from 1942 to 1948

The Visions of Simone Machard is a French resistance version of the Joan of Arc story

Schweyk in the Second World War transposes Hasek's 'good soldier' to the Prague of Hitler and Heydrich

The Caucasian Chalk Circle, based on the biblical story of the judgment of Solomon, was originally written for production on Broadway, with W. H. Auden responsible for the verse. It has since become one of Brecht's most popular works

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
