I read to this drama to the grammar school, imagining a boring biography of the famous Galileo, and I had myself to be ricredere. Much more they puts into effect than those that can seem the book she tells us of the scientist and the man, of the role that the scientists have inside of the history of the humanity and the limits of this humanity. For Brecht, upset from the facts of Hiroshima and Nakasaki, the scientist, therefore as the artist is in charge of its creations, does not have to fold itself to the wish of the powerful ones, and us the extension speaking about the life of Galileo: the scientific discoveries that come recognized valid, but that they come blocked from the inquisizione, the abjuration, the abandonment of the disappointed students. The drama of Galileo: to save the life and to continue the studies in secret, or not to rinnegare, to remain coherent and pure like a hero. E' a critical point this, one of the kernels of the entire drama, to which Brecht the earth answers with this exchange of struck ?Sventurata that does not have heroes? says Andrea Knows to you and Galileo answers ?Happy the country that does not have need of heroes?.
a critical book and puts into effect them, of easy and being involved reading, that it pushes to reflect.
