Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"A work written in old age and suffused with Mann's moral despair over his country's complacent embrace of Nazism....Mann's most Dostoevskyan novel..."

Kirkus, 10/15/1997

Review:

"This is one of those great world novels that Americans keep trying to write....Mann dramatized the nature of the demonic in our affairs and how, like the spirochete, a disease like Nazism can permeate the body politic just as, in Mann's genius-protagonist, syphilis proves to be a malignant source of his genius as well as of his destruction. Powerful metaphor, great novel."

Gore Vidal, Salon, 05/10/1999

Book Description: Random House USA Inc, United States, 2000. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New edition. 201 x 135 mm. Brand New Book. quot;John E. Woods is revising our impression of Thomas Mann, masterpiece by masterpiece.quot;  --The New Yorkerquot;Doctor Faustus is Mann s deepest artistic gesture. . . . Finely translated by John E. Woods.quot; --The New RepublicThomas Mann s last great novel, first published in 1947 and now newly rendered into English by acclaimed translator John E. Woods, is a modern reworking of the Faust legend, in which Germany sells its soul to the Devil. Mann s protagonist, the composer Adrian Leverkühn, is the flower of German culture, a brilliant, isolated, overreaching figure, his radical new music a breakneck game played by art at the very edge of impossibility. In return for twenty-four years of unparalleled musical accomplishment, he bargains away his soul--and the ability to love his fellow man. Leverkühn s life story is a brilliant allegory of the rise of the Third Reich, of Germany s renunciation of its own humanity and its embrace of ambition and nihilism. It is also Mann s most profound meditation on the German genius--both national and individual--and the terrible responsibilities of the truly great artist. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780375701160
