By Thomas Mann

El presente volumen reúne una selección de los ensayos de Thomas Mann, sin duda una de las figuras centrales de l. a. literatura del siglo XX. Poco conocida en España, los angeles ingente obra ensayística de este autor –los volúmenes publicados después de su muerte suman más de dos mil páginas– constituye un análisis penetrante e imaginativo de l. a. cultura europea.
Alrededor de este tema relevant se agrupan otros como l. a. relación del artista con l. a. sociedad, los angeles complejidad de l. a. realidad y del tiempo o las seducciones de l. a. espiritualidad, el eros y l. a. muerte.
Los textos que aquí presentamos suponen una eficaz aproximación al ideario estético de Mann en campos como los angeles música, el teatro y l. a. literatura. Es en este último apartado donde se encuentran algunos de los ensayos más perceptivos y profundos de su autor, en torno a grandes figuras de los angeles literatura common: desde un “Viaje por mar con Don Quijote” –genial comentario de l. a. obra de Cervantes escrito en el barco que le llevaba a Estados Unidos en 1934 huyendo de los nazis– hasta el conmovedor ensayo sobre Chéjov, pasando por Goethe, Zola o los angeles Anna Karénina de Tolstói.

Thomas Mann nació en Lübeck en 1875, segundo hijo de un comerciante acaudalado. Su madre pertenecía a una familia de plantadores de raíces luso-brasileñas, algo que influiría decisivamente en l. a. personalidad de Thomas, cuyo espíritu se encontró siempre escindido entre l. a. austera ética protestante y las inclinaciones sensuales y estéticas.

l. a. carrera literaria de Thomas Mann se inició a muy temprana edad, con los angeles publicación en 1893 de sus primeros relatos. Su primera novela, Los Buddenbrook (1901), le lanzaría a l. a. fama. Reconocido a partir de entonces como un gran escritor y estilista de l. a. lengua alemana, Mann cultivó el relato y l. a. novela, con obras tan relevantes como La muerte en Venecia (1913) o La montaña mágica (1924), así como el ensayo sobre temas culturales y políticos.

En 1929 recibió el Premio Nobel de Literatura. l. a. llegada al poder de los nazis en 1933 le obligó a exiliarse, primero en Suiza y luego en Estados Unidos. Entre 1934 y 1944 publicó l. a. tetralogía basada en l. a. historia bíblica de José, José y sus hermanos, a l. a. que siguió l. a. huge Doktor Faustus (1947). En 1954 se instaló en Zúrich, donde moriría en 1955.

39. Seeing in the body, nay in the gaping mouth of her child, this marvellous universe consisting of a variety of organisms . . she was seized with terror. . 32 Theatre and Religion on Krishna’s Stage 43. The Omnipotent Supreme Lord cast over the Gopa-lady who had thus realized the truth, his deluding Vaisnava (divine) charm which filled her with maternal affection for (her) son. 44. Instantly the Gopa-lady lost her memory (regarding the real nature of the Lord). She placed her son on her lap.

16 We might distinguish between the physical Krishna avatar and the divine Krishna by adopting for the former the name “Krishna-Gopal,” by which name devotees commonly refer to the child Krishna. The gopis who, in the Vrindavan forest, imitate Krishna-Gopal and act out his mythology, represent Krishna-Gopal’s equally representational imitation of Krishna’s divine activity. In the râs lila, then, we see actors playing at being gopis playing at being Krishna-Gopal playing at being Krishna. At the least, this is an example of a play-within-a-play-within-a-play-within-a-play.

Only, soon after freeing his homeland of Kamsa’s rule and instituting a golden age in the land of his birth, Krishna again abruptly packed up and moved to Dwarka to live as a warlord. As an adult with a full compliment of soldiers under his command, Krishna participated in the battle between cousins, which forms the core of The Mahabharata, ceding, in classic Krishna style, his armies to one side of the fight while committing himself to the other. Krishna’s revelation of his divine identity during the battle provides the theological moment of the Bhagavad Gita, and Krishna’s participation in the battle otherwise is marked by lying and cheating.
