"Based upon his own impressions of Brazil and personal experiences there, the author portrays a vast, inviting, fertile land with seemingly endless resources; a history devoid of major wars, in which all conflicts are resolved in a spirit of conciliation; the type of society for which he himself longed, composed of multinational elements that combine to form a harmonious whole free of racial tensions, strife, and destructive tendencies." "All of these and more contribute to his vision of an almost utopian place that seems to stand apart from the ills of the modern world while providing refuge from its hostility and hope that mankind can find a more peaceful direction in the future."--Jacket
The Caucasian chalk circle by Bertolt Brecht( Book )

27 editions published between 1946 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Student Edition of Brecht's classic dramatisation of the conflict over possession of a child features an extensive introduction and commentary that includes a plot summary, discussion of the context, themes, characters, style and language as well as questions for further study and notes on words and phrases in the text. It is the perfect edition for students of theatre and literature.Brecht projects an ancient Chinese story onto a realistic setting in Soviet Georgia. In a theme that echoes the Judgment of Solomon, two women argue over the possession of a child; thanks to the unruly judge, Azdak (one of Brecht's most vivid creations) natural justice is done and the peasant Grusha keeps the child she loves, even though she is not its mother. Written in exile in the United States during the Second World War, The Caucasian Chalk Circle is a politically-charged, much-revived and complex example of Brecht's epic theatre. This volume contains expert notes on the author's life and work, historical and political background to the play, photographs from stage productions and a glossary of difficult words and phrases. It features the acclaimed translation by James and Tania Stern with W. H. Auden

For eight weeks in 1945, as Berlin fell to the Russian army, a young woman, alone in the city, kept a daily record of her and her neighbours' experiences, determined to describe the common lot of millions. Purged of all self-pity but with laser-sharp observation and bracing humour, the anonymous author conjures up a ravaged apartment building and its little group of residents stuggling to get by in the rubble without food, heat or water. She depicts her fellow Berliners in all their humanity as well as their craveness, corrupted first by hunger and then by the Russians
