Bertolt Brecht:
A Life of Galileo - used book

ISBN: 147250741X

ID: 14265667

Arguably Brecht's greatest play, A Life of Galileo charts the seventeenth century scientist's extraordinary fight with the church over his assertion that the earth orbits the sun. The figure of Galileo, whose 'heretical' discoveries about the solar system brought him to the attention of the Inquisition, is one of Brecht's more human and complex creations. Temporarily silenced by the Inquisition's threat of torture, and forced to abjure his theories publicly, Galileo continues to work in private, eventually smuggling his work out of the country. Brecht's beautiful depiction of the explosive struggle between scientific discovery and religious fundamentalism is captured masterfully in this new translation by RSC writer-in-residence, Mark Ravenhill. anthologies,arts music and photography,continental european,drama,european,foreign language fiction,humanities,literature,literature and fiction,performing arts Performing Arts, Bloomsbury Publishing Plc
