June 6th, 2002

In 1875, German Nobel novelist Thomas Mann (The Magic Mountain, 1924) is born in Lübeck.

During his lifetime Mann was a towering literary presence, a spokesman for the modern intellectual. His monumental and ironic and novels and novellas continue to remind us of the creative artist who defied Hitler, rose above the political chaos of his time, and became a symbol of civilization during the carnage of World War II.

Suggested Reading Novels & novellas Buddenbrooks, 1901. Death in Venice, 1912. The Magic Mountain, 1924. The tetralogy Joseph and His Brothers, 1933-42. Lotte in Weimar, 1939. Doktor Faustus, 1947.
