Brecht's series of twenty-four interconnected playlets describe
events which took place in ordinary German households in the 1930s.
They dramatise with clinical precision the suspicion and anxiety
experienced by ordinary people, particularly Jewish citizens, as
the power of Hitler grew. Written in exile in Denmark and first
staged in 1938 it was inspired in part by his recent trip to Moscow
where he had been researching tasks for the anti-Nazi effort. This
Student Edition features an extensive introduction and commentary
and includes: a chronology of the Brecht's life and work; a
synopsis of each playlet; an introduction to the context of the
play; commentary on themes, characters, style and language; a
review of the play in performance; notes on individual words and
phrases in the text, and questions for further study.
