The Life of Galilei is perhaps Brecht’s most personal work for the stage. Why? Because Galilei was himself the embodiment of curiosity. “I must know,” he says, a bit ashamed, a bit defensive, as he destroys his daughter’s happiness and begins to undertake experiments again, the prohibition issued by the Inquisition notwithstanding, in order to prove that the earth does indeed revolve around the sun.
