Buddenbrooks first published in Germany in when Mann was only twenty six has become a classic of modern literature br br It is the story of four generations of a wealthy bourgeois family in northern Germany facing the advent of modernity in an uncertain new world the family s bonds and traditions begin to disintegrate As Mann charts the Buddenbrooks decline from prosperity to bankruptcy from moral and psychic soundness to sickly piety artistic decadence and madness he ushers the reader into a world of stunning vitality pieced together from births and funerals weddings and divorces recipes gossip and earthy humor br br In its immensity of scope richness of detail and fullness of humanity buddenbrooks surpasses all other modern family chronicles With remarkable fidelity to the original German text this superb translation emphasizes the magnificent scale of Mann s achievement in this riveting tragic novel, A title in the Bristol Classical Press German Texts series in German with English notes vocabulary and introduction Thomas Mann was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in and Tonio Kroger occupies a central position in his spiritual and artistic development A study of youth it draws together many strands of his life and work the duality of his parentage his abhorrence of discipline and the influence of Schopenhauer and Wagner on his early phase of writing, This remarkable new translation of the Nobel Prize winner s great masterpiece is a major literary event br br Thomas Mann regarded his monumental retelling of the biblical story of Joseph as his magnum opus He conceived of the four parts The Stories of Jacob Young Joseph Joseph in Egypt and Joseph the Provider as a unified narrative a mythological novel of Joseph s fall into slavery and his rise to be lord over Egypt Deploying lavish persuasive detail Mann conjures for us the world of patriarchs and pharaohs the ancient civilizations of Egypt Mesopotamia and Palestine and the universal force of human love in all its beauty desperation absurdity and pain The result is a brilliant amalgam of humor emotion psychological insight and epic grandeur br br Now the award winning translator John E Woods gives us a definitive new English version of i Joseph and His Brothers i that is worthy of Mann s achievement revealing the novel s exuberant polyphony of ancient and modern voices a rich music that is by turns elegant coarse and sublime, Thomas Mann s final novel recounts the strange and entranced career of the gifted swindler Felix Krull through his childhood and early manhood Krull is a man unhampered by moral precepts that govern the conduct of ordinary mortals and this natural lack of scruple coupled with his formidable mental and physical endowments enables him to develop the arts of subterfuge and deception with astonishing success and to rise swiftly from poverty to affluence Following Krull along the shady paths his nature has destined him to take the reader moves through a world peopled by bizarre characters from the lowest to the highest reaches of European society Chameleon like Krull readily adapts himself to the situation of the moment and so adept in the practices of chicanery does he become that his victims almost seem to count themselves privileged And so it is too with the women who encounter the irresistible Krull for where Krull is the normal laws of human behavior are in suspense br br Originally the character of Felix Krull appeared in a short story Mann wrote in The story wasn t published until in the book i Stories of Three Decades i along with other stories written from to the year in which he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature Much later he expanded the original story into a novel managing to finish and publish Part The Early Years of the i Confessions of Felix Krull i to great public success Due to Mann s death in the saga of the morally flexible and irresistible con man remains unfinished
