Thomas Mann and the Travesty of Innocence in the Major Fiction

By Daniel T. O’Hara

“Thomas Mann and the Travesty of Innocence in the Major Fiction” demonstrates how Mann’s modernist narrator absolves himself (and the social class he represents) and learns to enjoy his godlike privileges via a modernist fictional performance based on a revisionary model of ancient Gnosticism reinterpreted for our secular era.
