Abstract: Brecht never spoke about plays as dramatic text, but he rather only spoke about the theater. Not unlike Aristotle, with whom he so often disagreed critically, he wanted the meaning and the essence of drama to be determined starting from the “theatrical performance”, meaning, starting from the play. His work and contribution to the theatre is not easily understood by itself, so it should be viewed relative to the tradition that it, at the same time, develops and criticizes. In the study that we have started as the main subject of the paper, we have set up a review of Brecht’s idea of epic theatre and its reception by critics, as well as examining the figure of Mother Courage in relation to this model. In the paper titled “Personae dramatis in the play Mother Courage and Her Children by Bertolt Brecht” as the method for studying epic theater we will use the analysis of Brecht’s theoretical writings on theory of theatre, and also the contemporary works of dramatic criticism, to which, using the concretization method, the interpretation of the figure of Mother Courage supplements, by which we will present a dramatic figure in the drama of alienation, namely in the play “Mother Courage and Her Children” by Bertolt Brecht, so as to briefly shed light on its characteristics and the role of the concrete dramatic character in epic theatre. For clarification of the overall picture of personae dramatis in Brecht’s play, we have also used the theory of Étienne Souriau of dramaturgical functions, based on which we have interpreted the figure of Mother Courage in relation to her children, war, and to the dealings she had during the war.
