Most widely held works by Thomas Mann
The magic mountain (Der Zauberberg) by Thomas Mann( Book )

114 editions published between 1925 and 2012 in 10 languages and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A sanitorium in the Swiss Alps reflects the societal ills of pre-twentieth-century Europe, and a young marine engineer rises from his life of anonymity to become a pivotal character in a story about how a human's environment affects self identity. In this dizzyingly rich novel of ideas, Mann uses a sanatorium in the Swiss Alps, a community devoted exclusively to sickness, as a microcosm for Europe, which in the years before 1914 was already exhibiting the first symptoms of its own terminal irrationality. The Magic Mountain is a monumental work of erudition and irony, sexual tension and intellectual ferment, a book that pulses with life in the midst of death

Der durch einen Sturz als Säugling verkrüppelte Kaufmann Johannes Friedemann lebt zurückgezogen mit seinen drei Schwestern und der bettlägerigen Mutter. Nach außen hin präsentiert er sich als Kunstliebhaber und Literaturkenner. Er spielt Geige und ist oft gesehener Gast des Theaters. Ein Versuch, in das Orchester aufgenommen zu werden, scheitert am Kapellmeister, was Johannes sehr verbittert. Er weiß über den Spott, den die Kinder hinter seinem Rücken austragen. Und er weiß um die Bemerkungen, welche die Bürger der Stadt über ihn und seine wenig geistreichen Schwestern machen. Immer höher wird die Mauer, die er zwischen sich und der Außenwelt aufbaut. Der Holzhändler Schlievogt versucht ihn zwar für Geschäfte und Aktien zu begeistern, Johannes flieht jedoch in die Welt der Literatur und Künste, in der er in seinen Sehnsüchten schwelgen kann. Er gaukelt sich einen "Seelenfrieden" vor, der jedoch mit der Ankunft eines neuen Bezirkskommandanten jäh gestört wird. Quelle: 3sat.online

Hans Castorp recatosi a trovare un cugino in sanatorio, finisce col restarvi, ammalatosi a sua volta, per sette anni. A contatto con il microcosmo del sanatorio, vero e proprio panorama di tutte le correnti di pensiero, il suo carattere subisce un'evoluzione e un incremento: passa attraverso la malattia, l'amore (la signora Chauchat), il razionalismo e la gioia di vivere (Settembrini), il pessimismo irrazionale (Naphta), senza che nessuna di queste posizioni lo converta. Ma in mezzo a tante forze contrastanti, Castorp trova il suo equilibrio. Scoppia la guerra nel 1914 e Hans viene strappato da questa magica e raffinata atmosfera per essere gettato sui campi di battaglia dove la sua sorte resta incerta, ma immersa in un clima di morte
