Thomas Mann: Life on the Sidelines URL: http://www.march.es/conferencias/anteriores/voz.aspx?p1=100216&l=2

Thomas Mann achieved the feat of balancing a tension inherited from Romanticism and which seemed impossible to resolve: that of living simultaneously as a member of the bourgeois and an artist. At the expense, of course, of renouncing sensuality and life: what he eloquently called “the dogs chained up in the cellar”. The inevitable tensions caused by this forced balancing act emerge over and over again in his life, but Thomas Mann was able to sublimate them in his literature. We owe the best of his extraordinary work to them, so entangled with his life as Goethe’s was in his time, Thomas Mann believing he was his legitimate successor.
