By Thomas Mann

El presente volumen reúne una selección de los ensayos de Thomas Mann, sin duda una de las figuras centrales de l. a. literatura del siglo XX. Poco conocida en España, los angeles ingente obra ensayística de este autor –los volúmenes publicados después de su muerte suman más de dos mil páginas– constituye un análisis penetrante e imaginativo de los angeles cultura europea.
Alrededor de este tema critical se agrupan otros como los angeles relación del artista con l. a. sociedad, l. a. complejidad de l. a. realidad y del tiempo o las seducciones de l. a. espiritualidad, el eros y los angeles muerte.
Los textos que aquí presentamos suponen una eficaz aproximación al ideario estético de Mann en campos como l. a. música, el teatro y los angeles literatura. Es en este último apartado donde se encuentran algunos de los ensayos más perceptivos y profundos de su autor, en torno a grandes figuras de los angeles literatura common: desde un “Viaje por mar con Don Quijote” –genial comentario de l. a. obra de Cervantes escrito en el barco que le llevaba a Estados Unidos en 1934 huyendo de los nazis– hasta el conmovedor ensayo sobre Chéjov, pasando por Goethe, Zola o l. a. Anna Karénina de Tolstói.

Thomas Mann nació en Lübeck en 1875, segundo hijo de un comerciante acaudalado. Su madre pertenecía a una familia de plantadores de raíces luso-brasileñas, algo que influiría decisivamente en los angeles personalidad de Thomas, cuyo espíritu se encontró siempre escindido entre los angeles austera ética protestante y las inclinaciones sensuales y estéticas.

los angeles carrera literaria de Thomas Mann se inició a muy temprana edad, con l. a. publicación en 1893 de sus primeros relatos. Su primera novela, Los Buddenbrook (1901), le lanzaría a los angeles fama. Reconocido a partir de entonces como un gran escritor y estilista de l. a. lengua alemana, Mann cultivó el relato y los angeles novela, con obras tan relevantes como La muerte en Venecia (1913) o La montaña mágica (1924), así como el ensayo sobre temas culturales y políticos.

En 1929 recibió el Premio Nobel de Literatura. l. a. llegada al poder de los nazis en 1933 le obligó a exiliarse, primero en Suiza y luego en Estados Unidos. Entre 1934 y 1944 publicó los angeles tetralogía basada en l. a. historia bíblica de José, José y sus hermanos, a l. a. que siguió los angeles enormous Doktor Faustus (1947). En 1954 se instaló en Zúrich, donde moriría en 1955.
