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.… (mais)

Buddenbrooks.

The name alone conjures up richness, grandeur, and decay. A sense of history pummelling us into submission, and of small moments lodged alongside great ones. I'm not as well-read in Mann as I should be (he seems, these days, to be one of the shibboleths of the literary establishment), but Buddenbrooks is the very definition of a classic.

Four generations of 19th century Germans across 700 pages sounds like a cruel ask, but Mann is writing with a style that is Stendhal crossed with Zola, although he lacks the cynicism of either of those gentlemen. Indeed, for all of his symbols of elegant decay, one gets the sense that Mann rather empathises with this beguiling family.

If you're going to join the clan, you can't go wrong with John E. Wood's famous translation. Straightforward, poetic, and compelling:

"The consul climbed the stairs to his living quarters, and the old man groped his way down along the banister to the mezzanine. Then the rambling old house lay tightly wrapped in darkness and silence. Pride, hope, and fear all slept, while rain pelted the deserted streets and an autumn wind whistled around corners and gables."

Every character in the extended family is beautifully realised, from resentful old Thomas to larrikin Christian, their determined sister Tony (my favourite character) and grey-haired old Ida. The book is written in a succession of very short chapters, creating a sense of the piling up of moments like individual knitting loops that come together to form a rich tapestry - or, for that matter, the lines drawn in the old, gold-striped family notebook representing each branch of the family, so childishly (yet ominously) crossed out by the young Hanno, certain before his maturity that there will be no more. Think of the party that opens the novel, or Hanno's captivating piano recital.

"Is that how the world works - like a pretty melody? That's merely flimsy idealism."

Of course, you don't need silly old me to tell you that Mann was a literary luminary. Still, I can't emphasise enough the ease and poignance of this great novel. It shouldn't be an intimidating classic, by any means. ( )

This story is the debut novel of Thomas Mann, which he wrote when he was in his twenties and it won him the Nobel Prize. The story is about the Buddenbrook family and shows the decline of family, home, and business over the generations. It was semi autobiographical though it is fiction it does have many similarities with his own family and home town. It is long but a good read and one that was not hard to finish. I would rate it 5 stars. ( )

  MeisterPfriem | Mar 24, 2021 |
Een omvangrijke roman over een familiegeschiedenis met uitgebreide beschrijvingen zoals je dat in hedendaagse literatuur niet meer vindt.

Duidelijk dat de schrijver zelf uit hetzelfde koopmansmilieu komt zoals hij hier beschrijft. Ergens heeft hij het even over het bekrompen milieu van de burgerij in die tijd, een tijd waar hij echter zelf weinig kritisch in meegaat.

Het is een tijd van verstandshuwelijken, weinig of geen rechten voor de vrouw en dubbele moraal. Voor dat laatste sluit Mann de ogen. Toch komen bepaalde aspecten in de roman naar voor die ook hier wijzen op het bestaan van die dubbele moraal. Buitensporig belang hechten aan godsdienstige uiterlijkheden, relaties aangaan met niet-huwbare vrouwen en tenslotte op latere leeftijd huwelijken sluiten om het familiekapitaal uit te breiden.

Nee, het was een tijd van bordelen en syfilis. Bij deze roman kan je het enkel vermoeden bij sommige personages. Mann hangt de vuile was niet uit. Hij houdt de schone schijn op voor zichzelf en vooral voor de lezers. ( )

p. 262: "A businessman cannot be a bureaucrat," he told his former schoolchum Stephen Kistenmaker--of Kistenmaker & Sons--who was still Tom's friend, though hardly his match intellectually, and listened to his every work in order to pass it on as his own opinon.
...
"Ah, I almost fear that as time goes on the businessman's life will become more and more banal."
p 506: What was Death? The answer came, not in poor, large-sounding words: he felt it within him, he possessed it. Death was a joy, so great, so deep that it could be dreamed of only in moments of revelation like the present. It was the return from an unspeakably painful wandering, the correction of a grave mistake, the loosening of chains, the opening of doors - it put right again a lamentable mischance.
