(Book Jacket Status: Jacketed)With this dizzyingly rich novel of ideas, Thomas Mann rose to the front ranks of the great modern novelists, winning the Nobel Prize in 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. Acclaimed translator John E. Woods has given us the definitive English version of Mann’s masterpiece. A monumental work of erudition and irony, sexual tension and intellectual ferment, The Magic Mountain is an enduring classic.

3.0 Волшебная гора
Написано мастерски. Конечно, простецкие товарищи вроде меня всё же в глубине души хотели бы, чтобы хоть где-нибудь хоть что-нибудь было им высказано напрямую, сформулировано чётко и исчерпано до конца. Но не приходится сомневаться, что любая попытка добавить разъяснений непоправимо подорвала бы цело...

Od komentarzy i recenzji książki, dzieła, arcydzieła, super powieści (niepotrzebne skreślić) roi się w internecie i podręcznikach literatury. Onegdaj rozpisałem się trochę na temat JÓZEFA I JEGO BRACI i sporo z tego mógłbym powtórzyć tutaj: http://cygan.booklikes.com/post/113624/ludzie-juz-tak-nie...
