Publisher's Description

Galileo ranks alongside Mother Courage and Mr. Puntila as one of Brecht's most intensely alive, human, and complex characters. In Life of Galileo, the great Renaissance scientist is in a brutal struggle for freedom from authoritarian dogma. Unable to satisfy his appetite for scientific investigation, he comes into conflict with the Inquisition and must publicly renounce his theories, though in private he goes on working on his revolutionary ideas.

For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

Author Bio

Bertolt Brecht (1898–1956) was one of the most influential playwrights of the twentieth century. Born in Augsburg, Bavaria, he left Germany in 1933 when Hitler came to power. Returning to Germany after the war, he founded the Berliner Ensemble and continued to work on plays and films. Richard Foreman is the MacArthur Prize–winning author, director, and designer of more than fifty original plays, and the founder of the Ontological–Hysteric Theater.

Editorial Reviews

“ Eloquent in its outcries against blind dogma and powerful in the simplicity of its storytelling, Galileo is a play that offers the confrontations of stirring drama made visible in vivid theatrical images.”
—Chicago Tribune
