Bertolt Brecht’s “Life of Galileo” Webography

Bertolt Brecht’s “Life of Galileo” The_Life_of_Galileo_Brecht

A list of web sites means very little! It’s only a beginning and choosing the right sites to read and follow through on can be difficult. Choose well and you gain, choose badly and you spend some time wondering why you came here! Look at the links; they are in alphabetical order, but also look at the sites in terms of what they might indicate, i.e. Book Reviews, Historical or Geographical Background, Educational Sites, School Sites, VCE sites, YouTube, MP3, Interviews with Authors, etc.

All can be very useful but much depends on you and your interest(s) and how far you want to interpret Brecht’s drama.

If you want to follow a step-by-step learning process you may find the following link worthwhile: learnink Life of Galileo VCE 2013

If you have read the play script, make sure that you take notes on each scene, and then use the links below to build your knowledge and vocabulary. Keep noting … there are no shortcuts!

The following “Prezi” is not aimed to provide you with an easy introduction, but to challenge you to think about why (after over 400 years) the historical Galileo could still be important, and how Brecht’s characterization of Galileo may still serve a humanist purpose. Genius, like beauty, is not just skin deep!
