The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui

Alternative titles

There are fewer alternate copies of the script than is usual with Brecht's works, since "most of the revisions, such as they were, [had] been made directly on the first typescript,"[6] but he did refer to the play by a number of alternative names, among them The Rise of Arturo Ui, The Gangster Play We Know and That Well-Known Racket. At one point he referred to it as Arturo Ui, labelled it a "Dramatic Poem" and ascribed authorship to K. Keuner ("Mr. Nobody").[5]
