    One thought on “Mario and the Magician and Other Stories”

    1. "Mario y el Mago" es una magnífica narración, en la que Thomas MANN hace una crítica de la sociedad centroeuropea del siglo XX, durante ese difícil y tormentoso período entre las dos Guerras Mundiales. En este caso, el escritor alemán basa su historia en las vacaciones que una familia extranjera pasa en la villa italiana de Torre di Venere. Una vez allí, el narrador nos presentará, bajo la excusa de acontecimientos cotidianos (como la expulsión de dicha familia del hotel donde se hosped [...]

    2. I am delighted and surprised how Mann could capture the nuances in one of the stories 'The tranposed Heads' about Indian society, rituals and psychology of people. He gets into the skin -So accurate . Other one -'The tables of the Law' was an assigned work to him and he did the job well. A well crafted Symbolism in 'Mario and the Magician' . Enjoyable conversations and the one liners delivered through his characters are drawn well from life's real experiences. An Enjoyable read.

    3. This short frightening horror story, told so brilliantly by Thomas Mann, is a splendid example of his ability to present a subject briefly and succinctly. The theme of homosexuality is common in his work, no more so starkly than here. Mann's bisexuality, though rarely openly presented, and of which he openly spoke, was a prominent imprint in various pieces of his work, especially explicit here.

    4. Bit boring, to tell you the truth, but here’s a quote to reflect on: “Soll man «abreisen», wenn das Leben sich ein bisschen unheimlich, nicht ganz geheuer oder etwas peinlich und kränkend anlässt? Nein doch, man soll bleiben, soll sich das ansehen und sich dem aussetzen, gerade dabei gibt es vielleicht etwas zu lernen.“
