The message of Brechts parable is that resources should go to those who will make best use of them.

Thanks to the rascally judge, Azdak, one of Brechts most vivid creations, this story has a happy outcome: the child is entrusted to the peasant Grusha, who has loved and nurtured it.Published in Methuen Dramas Modern Classics series, this edition features an extensive introduction, Brechts own notes on the play and a full appendix of textual variants. It is the standard critical edition of the work in an acclaimed translation by James and Tania Stern with W. H. Auden.
