Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

A reissue of Brecht's classic play written in exile. In this savage and witty parable, the rise of Hitler is recast as a small-time Chicago gangster's takeover of the city's greengrocery trade. Included are Brecht's own notes and commentary by John Willet and Ralph Manheim.

Synopsis:

In The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui, Brecht recasts Hitler's rise to power in terms of a small-time takeover of Chicago's greengrocery trade. The brilliant parable recounts the events leading up to World War II with an American street-smart wit.

-- The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui includes a new introduction, extensive backmatter of Brecht's own notes and variants, and notes and commentary from the editors.
