Richard Wagner's Influence on Thomas Mann
MetadataShow full item record
There are many ways of approaching the Zauberberg. Each person who has attempted any comprehensive interpretation of this gigantic work will have realized that there are too many facets thereof to give an account of all the hidden meanings. For this reason I have restricted my study to the political aspects of this novel, primarily in connection with the first World War. In order to show the influence which Wagner had on this aspect of the novel, I felt it necessary to show the overall influence which he had on Mann, which Mann describes in his essays and letters, and then to make some comparisons to Mann's usage in his short stories.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email email@example.com to request access to this SIP.
