Read full description of the books:



Opera tra le più significative di un grande scrittore, il "Doctor Faustus" è la tragica storia di Adrian Leverkuhn, un musicista tedesco che come Faust ottiene dal demonio anni di meravigliosa attività intellettuale in cambio della dannazione eterna. Scritto alla fine dell'ultima guerra e nell'immediato dopoguerra, il libro non poteva esprimere meglio l'atmosfera disperata di quella che fu la catastrofe della Germania. Il protagonista assurge a simbolo di un'epoca e di un popolo che, guidato dalla superbia in una folle ascesa, era destinato alla nemesi più tremenda. Intorno al nucleo storico che abbraccia il periodo di tre generazioni, si muove un mondo di personaggi presentati con la sapiente maestria di un grande stilista, con accorata pietà o con mordente ironia, e alla trama centrale si annodano disgressioni che spaziano nei campi della musica, della filosofia, della fisica e dell'astronomia. E' uno di quei libri ai quali hanno 'posto mano e cielo e terra'.

Thomas Mann was a German novelist, short story writer, social critic, philanthropist, essayist, and 1929 Nobel Prize laureate, known for his series of highly symbolic and ironic epic novels and novellas, noted for their insight into the psychology of the artist and the intellectual. His analysis and critique of the European and German soul used modernized German and Biblical stories, as well as the ideas of Goethe, Nietzsche, and Schopenhauer. His older brother was the radical writer Heinrich Mann, and three of his six children, Erika Mann, Klaus Mann and Golo Mann, also became important German writers. When Hitler came to power in 1933, Mann fled to Switzerland. When World War II broke out in 1939, he emigrated to the United States, from where he returned to Switzerland in 1952. Thomas Mann is one of the best-known exponents of the so-called Exilliteratur.

The beginning is exciting, but at the end of the book is just a very template.
