Synopsis

The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui

The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui $14.99

Buy Kindle Edition

Bertolt Brecht

Published by Methuen

In this savage and witty parable written in exile in 1941, Brecht recasts the rise of Hitler as a small-time Chicago gangster's takeover of the city's greengrocery trade

This prizewinning translation by Ralph Manheim skilfully captures the wide range of parody and pastiche in the original - from Richard III to Al Capone, from Mark Antony to Faust - without diminishing the horror of the real-life Nazi prototypes

"One of the greatest poets and dramatists of our century" ~ Observer
