The Spirit of Germany in the Works of Thomas Mann URL:

Understanding art as being incompatible with life, Thomas Mann the writer became a virtuoso of distance. In contrast to the often fragmentary and impetuous writing of his expressionist contemporaries, Thomas Mann’s work is based on a harsh daily discipline, an extraordinary capacity for observation and a perfectly gauged irony. Equipped with these qualities, Mann converted the prime material of his own life and those surrounding him into literature of epic proportions. Curiously, although he didn’t create a school and his figure stands as a unique phenomenon in German literature, his works are considered the quintessence of Germanness, an idea cultivated by Mann himself, who in 1938, from his American exile, stated: "Germany is wherever I am".
