Rate this:
A novel of ideas at once serious and comic, The Magic Mountain offers a bird's-eye view of the political, philosophical, and social landscapes of pre-World War I Europe. This program uses provocative dramatizations of key scenes from Thomas Mann's grotesque bildungsroman and employs the character of Mann himself, in a re-creation of a 1939 lecture, as a guide to the story's heights and depths. In addition, Mann's biographer, Nigel Hamilton, inquires into the story's manipulation of time and the effects of environment on identity.
