Overview

In Doktor Faustus, his last major novel, Thomas Mann attempted to interpret and judge Germany's role in European culture and history since the Reformation.

He concludes with an account of the novel's generally hostile reception in defeated Germany. The book also includes a chronological table and a guide to further reading.
