With this dizzyingly rich novel of ideas, Thomas Mann rose to the front ranks of the great modern novelists, winning the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1929. The Magic Mountain takes place in an exclusive tuberculosis sanatorium in the Swiss Alps-a community devoted to sickness that serves as a fictional microcosm for Europe in the days before the First World War. To this hermetic and otherworldly realm comes Hans Castorp, an "ordinary young man" who arrives for a short visit and ends up staying for seven years, during which he succumbs both to the lure of eros and to the intoxication of ideas.

Review:

All the characters in Thomas Mann s masterpiece come considerably closer to speaking English in John E. Woods s version . . . Woods captures perfectly the irony and humor. New York Times Book Review
[Woods s translation] succeeds in capturing the beautiful cadence of [Mann s] ironically elegant prose. Washington Post Book World
[The Magic Mountain] is one of those works that changed the shape and possibilities of European literature. It is a masterwork, unlike any other. It is also, if we learn to read it on its own terms, a delight, comic and profound, a new form of language, a new way of seeing. from the new Introduction by A. S. Byatt"
