9780141189161: The Caucasian Chalk Circle (Penguin Modern Classics)

The play is a parable inspired by the Chinese play Chalk Circle. Written at the close of World War II, the story is set in the Caucasus mountains of Georgia, and retells the tale of King Solomon and a child claimed by two mothers. A chalk circle is metaphorically drawn around a society misdirected in its priorities. Brecht's statements about class are cloaked in the innocence of a fable that whispers insistently to the audience.

Review:

'The Caucasian Chalk Circle, written in 1944 while he was in exile from Germany, gives some epic illumination to socialist ideas about ownership and injustice. But more than that it's a story about love winning out over endemic corruption' --Dominic Maxwell, The Times

'an adept new translation by Alistair Beaton' --Dominic Maxwell, The Times

Review:

"One of the greatest poets and dramatists of our century" The Observer
