Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With the writing of Saint Joan of the Stockyards (1929-1930), Bertolt Brecht for the first time was able to turn his hope of writing a play that "corresponds to the sociological situation" into a reality. Brecht's metrics include borrowings from Schiller's The Maid of Orleans, Goethe's Faust II, and Holderlin's Hyperion, and the play's content is derived from Upton Sinclair, Bernard Shaw, and Lincoln Steffens. The result is pure Brechtian epic.

Synopsis:

"A major Brecht play in an outstanding translation with an expert and up-to-date preface." --Eric Bentley

"... a fine translation.... Jones has handled Brecht's meters with great skill." --Choice
