Volume 8 of Brecht's Collected Plays contains his last completed plays, from the eight years between his return from America to Europe after the war and his death in 1956. Brecht devoted his energies at this time - in an often tense dialogue with the GDR authorities - to the establishment of a new, post-Fascist literature and theatre. Antigone - A bold reflection on resistance and dictatorship in the aftermath on Nazism. The Days of the Commune - A semi-documentary account of the Paris Commune of 1871. Turandot or The Whitewasher's Congress - Brecht's grand satire on the bourgeois intellectual class, and a bizarre, comic variation on the old Turandot story.

Author Biography

Bertolt Brecht (1898-1956) is acknowledged as one of the great dramatists whose plays, work with the Berliner Ensemble and writing have had a considerable influence on the theatre. His landmark plays include The Threepenny Opera and, while exiled from Germany and living in the USA, such masterpieces as The Life of Galileo, Mother Courage and The Caucasian Chalk Circle.
