Buddenbrooks, 1st published in Germany in 1901, when Mann was only 26, has become a classic of modern literature--the story of four generations of a wealthy bourgeois family in northern Germany. With consummate skill, Mann draws a rounded picture of middle-class life: births, christenings- marriages, divorces, deaths- successes & failures. These commonplace occurrences, intrinsically the same, vary slightly as they recur in each succeeding generation. Yet as the Buddenbrooks family eventually succumbs to the seductions of modernity--seductions that are at variance with its own traditions--its downfall becomes certain.In immensity of scope, richness of detail & fullness of humanity, Buddenbrooks surpasses all other modem family chronicles- it has, indeed, proved a model for most of them. Judged as the greatest of Manns novels by some critics, its ranked as among the greatest by all. Thomas Mann was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1929.
