Subject: "In this volume of the new, authorized translation of the collected plays of Bertolt Brecht are three plays that he wrote in Berlin between 1925 and 1929-including the Threepenny Opera, his most familiar and most performed work. The translations are edited by Ralph Manheim, winner of the National Book Award for translation, and John Willet, author of a standard work on Brecht. An introduction places these plays in the context of Brecht's total work and editorial notes give variant texts as well as Brecht's own notes and performance instructions." -- from the book jacket
