Mother Courage and Her Children and Love in the Time of CholeraMother Courage and her Children (1939)(1) by German playwright Bertolt Brecht and Love in the time of Cholera (1985)(2) by Colombian author Gabriel Garcia Marquez explore the theme of obsession and its detrimental influence on human relationships. Whilst in the plays the protagonists obsession leads to the destruction of relationships with loved ones, in the novel a thwarted relationship leads the main character to develop dual unhealthy relationships with women. The first sees him obsessed with his lost first love and the second is a sexual addiction spanning more than 600 conquests. Whilst Mother Courage and Florentino are both driven by obsession, these vary in their focus. Mother Courage lives in the time of the Thirty Years war and runs her own cart selling wares to the armies to survive and support her
