9780140027235: Doctor Faustus: The Life of the German Composer Adrian Leverkuhn as Told by a Friend

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.
