Brecht S Only Novel Is, Of Course, Based On His Own Threepenny Opera, Which Was Itself Based On John Gay S The Beggar S Opera Set In Victorian London, The Novel Feels Similar To Dickens In Many Ways, But Written With A Very Dry Humour And None Of The Sentimentality The Plot Mostly Involves The Extremely Dodgy Business Dealings Of The Characters Peachum And Macheath, Along With Some Equally Dubious Bankers And Financiers In Fact It Feels Surprisingly Relevant To Current Times A Satirical Yet Rather Subtle Attack On Capitalist Society, Brecht S Vision Here Is Of A World In Which The Poor And Weak Are Continually Exploited In The Most Casual Fashion By The Powerful And Unscrupulous Who Always Come Out On Top It S Very Good Writing But May Be A Little Slow Going For Some.Просяшки роман

    A three star rating for a novel I abandoned that needs a word or two of explanation At first I thought this was going to be a great sardonic, sarcastic, mordant, funny evisceration of the dog eat dog life of Victorian capitalism told through three intertwining tales of skullduggery that reveal how this whole thing is a racket from the tippy toppest of Her Majesty s government down to the groveling no legged beggar on the streets of Shoreditch And it is But it goes completely wrong And the A three star rating for a novel I abandoned that needs a word or two of explanation At first I thought this was going to be a great sardonic, sarcastic, mordant, funny evisceration of the dog eat dog life of Victorian capitalism told through three intertwining tales of skullduggery that reveal how this whole thing is a racket from the tippy toppest of Her Majesty s government down to the groveling no legged beggar on the streets of Shoreditch And it is But it goes completely wrong And the humour drains away into a small puddle that a one eyed three legged cat drinks from So first we get a one legged soldier returning from the wars who fails in the retail trade and becomes a beggar, only to find that London beggars are mostly controlled by a certain Mr Peachum He runs an establishment that provides all a beggar could need false bottomed trolleys for men with two legs to be able to pose as no legged, and thin dogs for the blind beggars Thin Thin Their feeding was not a...

    Anyone who has ever even considered voting right wing should be tied to a chair and forced to remain seated until they have read this devastating novelistic critique of business, banking, imperialism, exploitation, murder, and poverty All of your favorite Brechtian quotations are here What is a bank robbery compared with the founding of a bank and all of the viscous wit and irony you would expect from the world s most entertaining political writer The novel really is an amazing panorama of Anyone who has ever even considered voting right wing should be tied to a chair and forced to remain seated until they have read this devastating novelistic critique of business, banking, imperialism, exploitation, murder, and poverty All of your favorite Brechtian quotations are here What is a bank robbery compared with the founding of a bank and all of the viscous wit and irony you would expect from the world s most entertaining political writer The novel really is an amazing panorama of the horror of a society based upon hierarchical exploitation in which The dying man dies and the sick man fights, as our anti hero MacHeath puts it what he really means is you will do anything for a buck and screw anybody in any way who gets in your way of doing whatever is necessary to get that buck.It s to Brecht s credit that a book this sad is, at the same time, also quite funny Some passages are both hysterical and devastating MacHeath s discovery th...

    There is often a curious dramatic tension in the literature produced by Marxist and socialist writers In theory, the writers subscribe to an optimist political belief system that predicts us heading for a world of greater fairness and equality for all However, the actual fiction produced by many socialist writers is of a pessimistic nature, depicting the triumph of their enemies, and showing society in a sordid and degraded light.There are exceptions William Morris is capable of writing Utopi There is often a curious dramatic tension in the literature produced by Marxist and socialist writers In theory, the writers subscribe to an optimist political belief system that predicts us heading for a world of greater fairness and equality for all However, the actual fiction produced by many socialist writers is of a pessimistic...

    Is it true Is it exeggerated Can it be that behind faces smiling but not showing teeth, faces with eyes made up but without sparks, can it be that behind talking about fog and giving a penny to a begger, there s nothing but cold left brained selfishness winning in the rat race It can t be like that, people were supposed to be good in essence, people were given a pound in a form of love and respect ...

    This was a strange one I had no idea about any of the background to the novel at all, not even the play it s based on, John Gay s Beggar s Opera While the novel can be taken at face value as a tale of the business rivalries amid the slums of Victorian London, Brecht would not have us remain on the surface It was important to him that the play he originally wrote, Threepenny Opera, and this subsequent novel should serve as a vehicle for his ideas about capitalism and its impact on the mass...

    Brecht s only novel is, of course, based on his own Threepenny Opera, which was itself based on John Gay s The Beggar s Opera Set in Victorian London, the novel feels similar to Dickens in many ways, but written with a very dry humour and none of the sentimentality The plot mostly involves the extremely dodgy business dealings of the characters Peachum and Macheath, along with some equally dubious bankers and financiers in fact...

    What an unworthy affair, to write contracts and debate over this and that Why not just stand up with a knife your money or your life But then again, so are the modern ways Macheath This novel was written to make a political statement and in that aspect with great success but purely literary this book is far from a masterpiece The monologues by the characters are word gold and really stand on their own a...

    In my deliberate reading which I started over a year ago of this wonderfully written and at times confusing adaptation translation from its originally written in German of a fiction work as I happened to have been privileged to have known personally some of those direct relatives of Bertolt Brecht, a giant in theatre, and whose family members I ve known and met have since brought me some curiosity as to why his works are being read and studied , I have since then convinced myself that I have In my deliberate reading which I started...

    This is the 1934 novel of the 1928 German operatic interpretation of the English original ballad opera The Beggar s Opera of 1798 written by Gray from an idea by his friend Swift author of Gulliver s Travels in 1716, which contains the character MacHeath This somewhat tortuous intro allows me to highlight that the novel impart replicates Brecht s original lyrics for the famous song Mack the Knife being MacHeath I had heard the name of Brecht but didn t know much else He is a famous drama This is the 1934 novel of the 1928 German operatic interpretation of the Eng...
