Inhaltsangabe:

Bertolt Brecht's only novel, available in English for the first time, provides readers with an enthralling account of the narrator's attempt to write a biography of one of the world's great leaders.

The Business Affairs of Mr Julius Caesar describes the narrator's attempt to write an idealised account of Caesar twenty years after his death. But the historian abandoned his planned biography, confronted by a baffling range of contradictory views. Was Caesar an opportunist, a permanently bankrupt businessman who became too big for the banks to allow him to fail - as his former banker claims? Did he stumble into power while trying to make money, as suggested by the diary of his former slave, an account of everyday life complete with intrigues, chance encounters and mundane household affairs?

As well as describing Caesar's activities at this crucial period, Brecht presents the essential difficulty of explaining historical events coherently: in an echo of his dramatic theories - stressing the audience's task of interpretation rather than passive acceptance - we have to work out our own views about Caesar.

This edition is translated by Charles Osborne and features an introduction and editorial notes by Professor Anthony Phelan.

Inhaltsangabe:

Bertolt Brecht's extraordinary historical novel presents an aspiring scholar's efforts to write an idealized life of Julius Caesar twenty years after his death. But the historian abandons his planned biography, confronted by a baffling range of contradictory views. Was Caesar an opportunist, a permanently bankrupt businessman who became too big for the banks to allow him to fail ? as his former banker claims? Did he stumble into power while trying to make money, as suggested by the diary of his former slave? Across these different versions of Caesar's career in the political and economic life of Rome, Brecht wryly contrasts the narratives of imperial progress with the reality of grasping self-interest, in a sly allegory that points to the Weimar Republic and perhaps even to our own times.

Brecht reminds his readers of the need for constant vigilance and critical suspicion towards the great figures of the past. In an echo of his dramatic theories, the audience is confronted with its own task of active interpretation rather than passive acceptance -- we have to work out our own views about Mr Julius Caesar.

This edition is translated by Charles Osborne and features an introduction and editorial notes by Anthony Phelan and Tom Kuhn.
