Joseph the provider by Thomas Mann( Book )

51 editions published between 1944 and 1968 in English and held by 2,024 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 )

40 editions published between 1936 and 1968 in 3 languages and held by 1,800 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

Demian : the story of Emil Sinclair's youth by Hermann Hesse( Book )

5 editions published between 1925 and 1999 in English and held by 1,349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This first major novel by Nobel Prize-winning author Hermann Hesse incorporates a theme he returned to again and again in most of his works: the fundamental duality of existence. The youthful protagonist, Emil Sinclair, however, his older friend, Max Demian, manages to both clarify and complicate Sinclair's confusion about life's conflicting values. Recounted in engaging prose, rich in sympathy and imagination, this brilliant exploration of the polarities of human nature has retained its remarkable power as a poignant statement of the terrors and torments of adolescence
