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.

Review: The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui

Nutzerbericht  - Goodreads

Found it very hard to get into initially, I think it would be a lot easier in performance. It would function perfectly well on its own terms without any knowledge of what it is representing (Hitlet's rise), which I think is part of good theatrical allegory or metaphor. Vollständige Rezension lesen

Review: The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui

Nutzerbericht  - Goodreads

'm somewhat fond of Brecht, and tragicomic plays like this, which explains Hitler's rise via the story of a two-bit gangster from Chicago, are the reason why. Vollständige Rezension lesen

Über den Autor (1981)

Bertolt Brecht was born on February 10, 1898 in Augsburg, Bavaria, and died on August 14, 1956. He was a German playwright, theatre director and Marxist. The modest house where he was born is today preserved as a Brecht Museum. Brecht formed a writing collective which became prolific and very influential. He wrote many lyrics for musicals and collaborated with Kurt Weill to create Die Dregroschenoper -- the biggest hit in 1920s Berlin. Brecht experimented with his own theater and company -- the Berliner Ensemble -- which put on his plays under his direction and which continued after his death with the assistance of his wife. Brecht aspired to create political theater, and it is difficult to evaluate his work in purely aesthetic terms. Brecht died in 1956.

Ralph Manheim (1907-1992) was an American translator of German and French literature, as well as occasional works from Dutch, Polish and Hungarian. The PEN/Ralph Manheim Medal for Translation, a major lifetime achievement award in the field of translation. is named in honor of Manheim and his work.
