Résumé : "Groucha, simple fille de cuisine, sauve de la mort, lors d'une révolution de palais, le fils du gouverneur abandonné par sa mère et s'enfuit avec lui.

Il appartiendra à l'inénarrable Azdak, devenu juge par une absurdité du sort, de départager les deux mères en les soumettant à l'épreuve du "cercle de craie"."--Boîtier

Mother Courage is the play in which Brecht made his most passionate statement against war, but perhaps Brecht's greatest achievement in the drama lies in the creation of the character of Anna Fierling, nicknamed "Mother Courage," the itinerant trader who drags her canteen through the blood and carnage of the Thirty Years' War and whose fatal error is to believe that she can make the war serve her ends

Don Juan : comedy in five acts, 1665 by Molière( Book )

4 editions published between 1960 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Long ago in Sicily, the legend of Don Juan began. In this, Moliere's version of the tale, richly translated by Richard Wilbur, we meet Don Juan again. He is a man who appreciates beauty wherever and whenever he sees it - and beauty is almost always a pretty woman, and he appreciates her by winning her love. Don Juan is on a constant quest to conquer women and to enjoy the passion they provoke. He is accompanied , somewhat reluctantly, by his manservant sganarelle, who backs him up to the public, but behind his back tries to warn unsuspecting maidens. Sganarelle and Don Juan constantly debate the presence of Heaven, Hell and God - Don Juan believing none of these things exist, Sganarelle knowing otherwise. In the course of his attempted seductions, Don Juan is chased and challenged by those he has wronged in the past - or by their very angry brothers whose job it is to uphold family honor. In the end, Sganarelle wins the debate when Don Juan, heeding no warnings as to his behavior and how it affects his afterlife, is swallowed up by the Earth and sent to Hell. He's got his due, leaving behind a world of broken-hearted women and unpaid wages to Sganarelle"--P. [4] of cover
