The Magic Mountain

Author: Mann, Thomas Set In . . .
 Italy, Europe, Switzerland, Davos
Genre: Fiction
Time Frame: 1920s
Published: 1929
Description: In this dizzyingly rich novel of ideas, Mann uses a sanatorium in the Swiss Alps--a community devoted exclusively to sickness--as a microcosm for Europe, which in the years before 1914 was already exhibiting the first symptoms of its own terminal irrationality. The Magic Mountain is a monumental work of erudition and irony, sexual tension and intellectual ferment, a book that pulses with life in the midst of death.
