Joseph the provider by Thomas Mann( Book )

14 editions published between 1944 and 1968 in English and German and held by 2,009 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joseph the Provider, the fourth and last volume of Thomas Mann's great tetralogy, tells the story of the hero's rise to renown as a statesman in Egypt and his successful conduct of the famous fourteen years' abundance and famine in the lands. It is also the story of Joseph's restoration to his father Jacob, of the migration of Israel down to Egypt, and Jacob's death and burial; and lastly, it is a marrying of Hebrew, Greek, Babylonian, and Egyptian religious traditions as they met and mingled at the court and in the mind of Ikhnaton, the famous heretic Pharaoh of the fourteenth century B.C. -- a mingling that contained so many seeds of religious thought developed in centuries to come. As in the previous volumes, the narrative sticks faithfully to the relevant chapters of Genesis, concerned to fill out, interpret, and illuminate them: we have the dream of the seven cows and the seven ears, the prophecy, the scarcity, the journey of the brothers down to Egypt, their prostration before their unknown brother in fulfillment of Joseph's youthful dream; the money in the sacks, the banquet, the silver cup, the accusation, Judah's great speech, and the final revelation, when Joseph tells the frightened men: "I am your brother," and Benjamin the man of faith falls on his neck. In addition to all this there are two beautiful stories, the substance of which is taken quite literally from the Bible; the priceless diverting tale of the two fine gentlemen. Pharaoh's chief baker and chief butler; and the dark and enthralling story of Tamar, grand-daughter-in-law of the patriarch, with whom the old man was "a little bit in love." All in all, this fourth volume is a most rich banquet for the mind and heart, it gratifies and satisfies; it is a crowded pattern of which every single element and ornament has a symbolism belonging to and required by the whole; and it has, as the author makes quite clear to us through by indirection, through the pertinence and significance of its comment on all life, much and inescapable bearing upon our life today. - Jacket flap
Joseph in Egypt by Thomas Mann( Book )

19 editions published between 1938 and 1945 in 3 languages and held by 1,768 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joseph is brought into Egypt by the traders, and he is sold to Potiphar, and in this new environment, he establishes himself as a trusted, and, later, a high-ranking member of Potiphar's extensive household. The story of Joseph and Potiphar's wife is too well-known to be retold here, but Mann fills his account with the most precise and intricate psychological details: the tension comes not from "what happens next?"--Since we all know what happens next -- but in the painstaking depiction of the development of various characters' psychologies. Rarely, if ever, has sexual desire been presented in more convincing detail than in the depiction of the wife of Potiphar, proud and aloof, lusting after the mere slave Joseph. And in this volume, another theme begins, I think, to develop: it is that word that Potiphar's wife could barely bring herself to say, even after hundreds of pages of agonising over it -- "love". Not necessarily love in a sexual sense, of course -- although that's part of it -- but the love that humanity, despite everything, persists in feeling for one another. The chapter depicting the death of the overseer, Mont-kaw, who had become as another father to Joseph, is among the most moving things I have read in any novel. For all the various complexities and layers of irony, Mann could at times be almost disconcertingly direct. - Himadri Chatterjee

Young Joseph by Thomas Mann( Book )

12 editions published between 1935 and 1945 in English and German and held by 827 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first volume, Tales of Jacob, tells of Joseph's father, Jacob, and acts as a sort of prelude. It presents a very strange world -- a world in which people can bury their own son alive as a sacrifice to the gods. And yet, somehow, the characters are not remote: the mythical and the human are held in balance. Joseph himself emerges in the second volume, Young Joseph, and while the first volume provided ample evidence of Mann's mastery of pacing (despite the generally slow pulse), it doesn't perhaps prepare us for what we get in the closing chapters of the second: when Joseph's brothers imprison him in a pit and then sell him into slavery, the narrative acquires a tremendous forward momentum and leaves one breathless with excitement. - Himadri Chatterjee
