Galileo, which examines the conflict between free inquiry and official ideology, contains one of Brechts most human and complex central characters. Temporarily silenced by the Inquisitions threat of torture, and forced to abjure his theories publicly, Galileo continues to work in private, eventually smuggling his work out of the country.

As an examination of the problems that face not only the scientist but also the whole spirit of free inquiry when brought into conflict with the requirements of government or official ideology, Life of Galileo has few equals.Mother Courage is usually seen as Brechts greatest work. Remaining a powerful indictment of war and social injustice, it is an epic drama set in the seventeenth century during the Thirty Years War.

The plot follows the resilient Mother Courage who survives by running a commissary business that profits from all sides. As the war claims all of her children in turn, the play poignantly demonstrates that no one can profit from the war without being subject to its terrible cost also.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 Brechts own notes and relevant texts as well as all the important textual variants.
