9780140039511: Letters (Modern Classics)

This selection of Thomas Mann's letters, first published in a Vintage edition in 1975, spans sixty-six years from the first, written by a precocious fourteen-year-old, to the last, composed on his deathbed by the eighty-year-old Nobel Laureate, and includes letters to family and to such celebrated contemporaries as Gide, Freud, Brecht, Einstein, Hesse, Schoenberg, and Adorno. Covering two world wars and exile in Europe and America, Mann's letters offer the reader insight into the concerns and values of one of the great writers of our time.

From the Back Cover:

"Mann's pivotal role during the Nazi period as perhaps the most eloquent spokesman for the 'other Germany' that lived in exile means that anyone studying the history of our century must begin with him. . . . These letters are literary and cultural documents that have few equals in our age." (James K. Lyon, University of California, San Diego)
