You write that I had been ill at ease and I intend to remain such after my death, too. Persecuted and chased for his convictions, driven away from his homeland, receiving a hostile welcome in America, too, Bertold Brecht valued the art of living as no one else, and within a short time, he wrote a huge number of works, which turned him into one of the most amazing writers. The Threepenny Opera, Life of Galileo, Mother Courage and her Children, Caucasus Chalk Circle - his dramas have captivated millions. Without ousting his achievements and foresights in poetry and fiction. What stands out most prominently in Brecht's biography is the unity of world outlook, behaviour and creative work. "In everything he created this exclusively talented poet disseminated the embryos of thoughts and spiritual movements, destined to grow up and give fruit only some time later. Brecht did not in the least consider himself to be "a tutor of the nation". He had the awareness of "knowing nothing" on his own, and was willing to learn from the others. But his desire was to spur, to talk and dispute, to help people think. This "Socrates' beginning" filled all his works as a writer. That is why his pieces never let the reader go, making him get deeper into them, attracting him with ever fresh power again. And if our contemporaries just guess his importance, only the future generations will get into the whole wealth of his works." Lion Feuchtwanger
