In Doktor Faustus, his last major novel, Thomas Mann attempted to interpret and judge Germany's role in European culture and history since the Reformation. In this study, Michael Beddow analyzes the chief historical, theological, psychological and musical themes of this complex work, and considers Mann's indebtedness to the Faust tradition, Nietzsche, and neo-Marxism. He concludes with an account of the novel's generally hostile reception in defeated Germany. The book also includes a chronological table and a guide to further reading.

Originally published between 1909 and 1917 under the name "Harvard Classics," this stupendous 51-volume set-a collection of the greatest writings from literature, philosophy, history, and mythology-was assembled by American academic CHARLES WILLIAM ELIOT (1834-1926), Harvard University's longest-serving president.
