    1. Helen Ροζουλί Εωσφόρος Vernus Portitor Arcanus Ταμετούρο Αμούν Arnum says:

      Επιφανειακά είναι ένα υπέροχο παραμύθι. Εσωτερικά του κύκλου με την κιμωλία υπάρχουν κρυμμένα ένοχα κοινωνικοπολιτικά στοιχεία που συνυπάρχουν σε όλο τον κόσμο και είναι εκ διαμέτρου αντίθετα. Μέσα σε αυτή την πολύ ανθρώπινη ιστορία αποτυπόνονται με διδακτικό και ψυχαγω [...]

    2. When the sharks the sharks devourLittle fishes have their hour.This might be the Master at his finest, remarkably both modern and ancient, timeless parables are bracketed in the struggle against fascists with an all too human squalor that likely made Stalin squeal. The play within the play is apparently from an ancient Chinese tale, it proved unexpectedly surprising. Grusha is a wonderful, highly developed protagonist, unlike the Portia of Venice, her motivation isn't guile but an almost childis [...]

    3. What I learnt from this book: rich people suck, poor people suck, war sucks, society sucks, socialism isn't bad and fruit farms are the future.

    4. Bertolt Brecht considered himself to be a great author which is not terribly surprising as most people are at least partially self-delusion. What is more surprising is how many people agreed with Brecht's high opinion of himself during the middle decades of the Twentieth Century. In fact Brecht had a wicked sense of humour and a great instincts on how to use the space on the stage to best effect. As a result he produced a number of highly entertaining plays that had audiences laughing in the fou [...]

    5. Tackling a Brecht script takes a lot of patience and time! His writing is complex and fluid and yet the embedded symbolism takes time to unravel and reflect on! This is one play I would love to see on the stage!

    6. Η ιστορία του βασιλιά Σολομώντα και των 2 γυναικων τοποθετημένη στην περίοδο του τριαντακονταετή πολέμου και δοσμένη αριστοτεχνικά απο τον Μπρεχτ Το βιβλίο περιλαμβάνει και μια διασκεδαστική ιστορία "Τραυματισμένος Σωκράτης"!!

    7. من عشق برشت هستم دربست! از ابتدای آشنایی تا همین الان:)

    8. I saw a production of this but I have not read it yet. Brecht's ideas are abstract and they kept me wondering about the fairy-tale like quality. Grusha, a servant working for a snobbish aristocratic woman (Natella), cares for the child (Michael) who Natella left behind. Grusha is selfless and she gives everything she can to him. When the case is brought to court with the judge named Azdak, the chalk circle is drawn to put the child in. Brecht's ideas intrigued me here. Grusha and Natella are ask [...]

    9. Perhaps the best Brecht play I have read so far (though they have all been good). There is something particularly engaging about the two main characters, Grusha and Azdak. Although the message of the play is supposedly very straightforwardly "Socialist" I always feel that Brecht is never quite so obviously simple as that. The writing is amazing and the songs always add to the impetus rather than detract from it.

    10. Es scheint als wurde der Herr Brecht in seinem Alter ein bisschen "gefühlsduselig" (view spoiler)[(ein Happy End bei Brecht?? wow). (hide spoiler)] Aber sonst immer noch Alles beim Alten: alle Geschehen sind noch schön im lieben Marxismuskleid eingepackt. (inkl. Songs und Stück im Stück Parabel)

    11. I finished reading this a couple weeks ago for my Theatre class and yes, it's that genius Brecht whom everyone has heard of yet no one quite understands. Brecht's works and techniques aiming to completely and utterly emotionally isolate the audience of his plays create confusion as to how the characters should act or whether they should act at all and they SHOULD. The Caucasian Chalk Cirle threads together two conflicts regarding the ownership of farmed land after the second world war, and uses [...]

    12. Eski zamanların birinde Devlet Tiyatroları genelde başarılı kadrolarla iyi oyunları sahnelermiş. Cemre de bu zamanların birinde Erzurum DT’den izlemiş Kafkas Tebeşir Dairesi’ni, çok da sevmiş. Bir gün bir sahafta görmüş oyunu, hemen almış. Bugün de okumuş, kim bilir belki de izlemekten zevk aldığından okumaktan da bir o kadar zevk almış.Erzurum DT demişken, yaklaşık bir ay kadar önce Erzurum DT binasında çıkan yangına ne kadar üzüldüğümü belirtmem lazı [...]

    15. لماذا يكون التغريب حاجة اساسية في المسرح الملحمي ؟ التغريب مطلوب لجعل الاشياء مفهومة لانه عندنا تكون الاشياء واضحة بذاتها لا تكون هناك حاجة للفهم ؛ القاء ضوء الفهم علي ما يبدو "طبيعياً" فبهذا يمكن لقوانين العلة والمعلول ان تتضح حيث لابد للشخصيات ان تتصرف كما كانت تتصرف ، وكا [...]

    16. Taking place right after WWII, in the Caucasus region, but most of it actually being told as a story within the play (which is set a few centuries in the past?). While the actual play is inspired by an old chinese drama.

    17. I am, clearly, missing something. The only thing reading this play gave me was a headache. War sucks, but I think that has always been a given. I didn't nee this play to know that. Also, one play is enough of a challenge without the play within a play debacle.

    18. دایره گچی قفقازی از مهم ترین نمایش نامه های تیاتر حماسی برشت و یکی از آخرین آنها در دوران هجرت او در آمریکاست. در این اثر برشت از تیاتر در تیاتر هم بهره برده است. واقعه که در انتهای جنگ دوم جهانی در شوروی رخ می دهد، توسط یک گروه دوره گرد نوازنده و خواننده روایت می شود. هسته ی اصلی [...]

    19. Soviet landlords and workers argue about who's the right owner of the land. A marxist discussion which the workers will win in the end. To pronise us the illusion of an objective topic solved in an objective manner, Bretch employs a play inside the play technique with roots in the ancient chinese legend of the chalk circle, which is a lot like its widely known counterpart in the judeochristian tradition: the story of King Salomon.It's a sugar coated version, Marx'd up version of The Augsburg Cha [...]

    20. I once acted in a powerful production of Brecht's satirical masterpiece in, of all places, Kampala, UgandaI suppose the play can be summarised as follows: The city burns in the heat of civil war and a servant girl sacrifices everything to protect an abandoned child. But when peace is finally restored, the boy's mother comes to claim him. Calling upon the ancient tradition of the Chalk Circle, a comical judge sets about resolving the dispute. But in a culture of corruption and deception, who wins [...]

    21. Aaaah, Herr Brecht, ich weiß, was Sie mit diesem Stück tun. Und trotzdem: ich falle darauf hinein, immer wieder.Ich liebe die Figuren, die jemand, die auch nur ein wenig mit der Folklore der ehemaligen Sowjetunion vertraut ist, sofort kulturell zuordnen kann. Und ich liebe diesen Hintergrund, so wunderbar eingearbeitet. Und die Sprache, natürlich die Sprache.(Wo kann ich jetzt das Stück bitte richtig gut umgesetzt auf der Bühne sehen? Wird es überhaupt noch gespielt?)

    22. This was a very strange play. It follows the old story of two women forced to prove they're the mother of a child by fighting over it, and the true mother won't harm the child. It was a sort of play within a play, with a chorus of singers and poetry woven into it, which I enjoyed, but it seemed to be very disjointed plot wise. I'll be interested to discuss this in class to hopefully illuminate my understanding.

    23. It is amazing the ability that some writers have to compress in a very short story a very strong message. It's also a good reminder of what writting is,simple things,powerfull message,unexpected ending. You don't need anything else no fancy writting no blood no sex. PS. In this adition there is also a short story called the injury of Sokrates. Brecht succeds to make us understand that you can win and be lost and you can lose and be a winner.

    24. گروشه:میتونم بفهمم که میخواهید غائله رو زود ختم کنید. چون که دیدم ازشون -پول- گرفتین.آزداک: پوزتو ببند.مگه از تو گرفتم؟گروشه:من نداشتم که ازم بگیرین.آزداک:کاملا درسته.از شما گدا گشنه ها که چیزی نمیگیریم.پس لابد باید از گشنگی میمردم؟شماها عدالت میخواین.اما پولشو میدین؟ وقتی از ق [...]

    25. Once again this was as easy to read as wading through porridge. The concept was interesting but that is all I enjoyed about this play. In all honesty I'm not particularly fond of Brecht's theatre in general. He loathed theatre that did nothing but provided entertainment, 'after dinner theatre' he called it. Instead he wanted his audience to leave thinking, questioning and did everything in his power to reiterate that this was simply a production. The Caucasian Chalk Circle, therefore, in my opin [...]

    26. I read this back when i was in HSC, about a million years ago. It was interesting to come back to it after all that time.[return][return]Way back then, we were told that it was about land ownership and socialism, but it turns out that that's not the case. In fact, to quote the rather helpful introductory comments by the legendary Eric Bentley: "The Caucasian Chalk Circle is not an inquiry into the dispute over ownership presented in the prologue but a celebration of the assignment of the land to [...]
