Synopsis

Thomas Mann wrote Doctor Faustus during his exile from Nazi Germany. In retrospect it seems—although he already had a long string of masterpieces to his name—that this is the novel he was born to write. Obsessively exploring the evil into which his country had fallen, Mann succeeds as only he could have in charting the dimensions of that evil; and this drama of a composer who sells his soul for the artistic power he craves has both the pertinence of history and the universality of myth. With an introdcution by T.J. Reed, this version is a translation by H.T. Lowe-Porter.

About Thomas Mann

Thomas Mann - Doctor Faustus
Thomas Mann was born in 1875 in Germany. He was only twenty-five when his first novel, Buddenbrooks, was published. In 1924, The Magic Mountain was published, and, five years later, Mann was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. Following the rise of the Nazis to power, he left Germany for good in 1933 to live in Switzerland and then in California, where he wrote Doctor Faustus (first published in the United States in 1948). Thomas Mann died in 1955.
