A Major Literary Event: a brilliant new translation of Thomas Mann's first great novel, one of the two for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature in 1929.

Buddenbrooks, first published in Germany in 1900, when Mann was only twenty-five, has become a classic of modem literature -- the story of four generations of a wealthy bourgeois family in northern Germany. With consummate skill, Mann draws a rounded picture of middle-class life: births and christenings; marriages, divorces, and deaths; successes and failures. These commonplace occurrences, intrinsically the same, vary slightly as they recur in each succeeding generation. Yet as the Buddenbrooks family eventually succumbs to the seductions of modernity -- seductions that are at variance with its own traditions -- its downfall becomes certain.

In immensity of scope, richness of detail, and fullness of humanity, Buddenbrooks surpasses all other modem family chronicles; it has, indeed, proved a model for most of them. Judged as the greatest of Mann's novels by some critics, it is ranked as among the greatest by all. Thomas Mann was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1929.

Mehr über den Autor

Bis heute gilt er vielen als der Inbegriff der deutschen Literatur: Thomas Mann (1875-1955), der Literaturnobelpreisträger von 1929. Diese höchste Auszeichnung erhielt er für seinen ersten Roman "Die Buddenbrooks", ein Jahrhundertwerk, das als Schlüsselroman seiner Zeit gilt. Kurz nach diesem Triumph begann für Thomas Mann die Zeit des Exils, zunächst in der Schweiz, unterbrochen von Reisen in die USA, wo ihm 1938 die Ehrendoktorwürde der Columbia University, New York, verliehen wurde. 1941 siedelte er nach Kalifornien über, drei Jahre später wurde er amerikanischer Staatsbürger. 1952 kehrte Thomas Mann in die Schweiz zurück, wo er 1955 starb. Zu seinen bekanntesten Werken gehören "Der Tod in Venedig", "Der Zauberberg" und "Die Bekenntnisse des Hochstaplers Felix Krull".



"Perhaps the first great novel of the 20th century" (New York Times)

"One of the best novels of the 20th century" (Guardian)

"That definitive epic of German family life" (Irish Times)

"His masterpiece" (Los Angeles Times)

"Has extraordinary value as a document over and above its importance as literature. The friendly dispassionateness of the book, the amplitude, the final perfection of clearness, make it as satisfying as a Dürer drawing" (Observer)


In following the disintegration of a merchant family, Thomas Mann charts the destabilisation of nineteenth bourgeois values and the birth of modernism in this, his first major novel.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Decline of family, incline of writing talent 3. März 2000
Buddenbrooks tells the story of three generations of a proud family in the mid to late 19th century. Sadly, the family heritage begins to sink into a quagmire of bad business decisions, bad marital decisions, apathy and just plain bad luck.
What really sets this opus (and other Mann novels) apart from "standard fare" works of literature is the depth and richness of personalities which are found in its characters. There are no "stock characters" to be found in Mann. By the end of the novel, I felt as though I personally knew the Buddenbrooks and as such was compelled to feel sad about their fate. I can think of no higher compliment that I could possibly grant a novel.
The story tells of a family which thought it would continue to prosper forever. The stark reality soon sets in that the family will have to struggle in order to retain any sort of Buddenbrook dignity at all. It seems that entropy increases with each successive generation, and seemingly nothing can reverse the trend...
So, read this book. Join the Buddenbrooks thru decades of weddings, funerals, musical performances, travels to the beach and deep existential philosophical inquiries. A wonderful glimpse of changing social structures and traditions in mid to late 19th century Germany. life.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Fabulous book, questionable translation 22. Dezember 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Buddenbrooks is an astonishing novel from a 25 year old Thomas Mann, showing deep and mature insight into his characters and the world of a 19th century Baltic city (modelled on his native Lubeck). It is Mann's most directly engaging novel, a pleasure to read and re-read. However, translations of Mann have always been problematic. The early Helen Lowe-Porter translations are clearly inadequate, and more recent translators such as David Luke and John Woods have attempted to remove the layers of obscurity added to the texts by Lowe-Porter (as well as some obvious errors). This recent translation of Buddenbrooks from John Woods succeeds in providing a more direct entry into the world of Buddenbrooks, and removes the linguistic complexities and purple passages that clearly belonged to Lowe-Porter, and not to Mann. However, in doing so, Wood has also removed some of the poetry from the novel. Not the least part of this is the translation of much of the novel into American vernacular, much of which is inappropriate in a novel of 19th century northern Germany. For example, characters who speak in Bavarian dialect are translated into a kind of Texan slang which reminded me more of the wild west than than a Baltic trading town. Wood's choices are often doubtful, and the persistent inappropriateness of some of these detracts from the experience of reading this undoubtedly great novel. In summary, I rate the book as 5 stars, with a star lost for the translation. (By comparison, I rate the Lowe-Porter translation as 3 stars.) We are still waiting for an ideal translator of Mann.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent - A Must Read! 2. Dezember 1999
Von Sandy Zee
Impossible to explain in words how wonderful I thought this book was. From the first page until the last, I was totally immersed with the story and the characters. I actually felt like I knew these people and felt their joy and pain right along with them. I found it hard to put this book down and was finished with it way before I wanted to be. It's the kind of book you don't want to see end and I feel like I lost some very good friends when it was over. I will definitely re-read this one many times. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Difficult but worth the effort; a superior translation 22. September 1999
I had tried to read Mann before but had trouble with the translations. This is clearly superior to those previous. I found myself lost in the daily trials and tribulations of the Buddenbrook family and was truly sad to see it end. The chapter detailing little Johann's life from the time the alarm clock rings until he retires for the evening is a masterpiece of detail and chronology. I actually lost my copy of this book and had to buy another to finish it. A total immersion into the life of a family.

5.0 von 5 Sternen stunning book and stunning translation 9. Februar 2000
What a joy it was to read this book. It is the story of a very average family in Lubeck somewhere in the last century. The description of the members of this familiy with all their flaws, carefully depicted in all detail like in the great realistic paintings, is wonderful and it is difficult to believe that the writer was only 25.
In particular his description of the "kleinbuergerlichkeit"( I have not seen this German word translated correctly in any language, but it means something like the small citizen in a small town)is phenomenal.
In the reviews I see quite some comments on the translation. I am both fluent in German and English and I have read this translation with the original on the side. Indeed, the absolute purist may complain that some of the German nuances and wordgames Mann likes to use get lost. However, you have to have such a good understanding of the German, that you would not need a translation. In my view the translator absolutely got the spirit of the novel right and was able to re-create this typical small town atmosphere in Northern Germany very, very well. And fact is, Mann in German is very difficult, even for Germans. This translation has made the work of an unique author available to a wider public
