Thomas Mann, World Author: Representation and Autonomy in the World Republic of Letters (Article)
Title: Thomas Mann, World Author: Representation and Autonomy in the World Republic of Letters
Author: Boes, Tobias
Abstract: In this article, I present an argument for Thomas Mann as a prototypical “world author,” a term I use to refer to writers who take an active interest in managing the global reception of their works. What makes Thomas Mann especially interesting in this context is that he achieved global recognition not despite, but rather precisely because of his identification with a national culture: during the 1930s and 1940s, he essentially became the spokesman for the “other Germany” suppressed by the Nazis. This sort of equation would become commonplace over the following decades, especially with authors from the developing world. Reading Thomas Mann as a world author thus affords us a new perspective not only on his own life and work, but also on his position within literary history.

Title: Thomas Mann's War: Literature, Politics, and the World Republic of Letters
Author: Tobias Boe
Author: Tobias Boe
Abstract: In Thomas Mann's War, Tobias Boes traces how the acclaimed and best-selling author became one of America's most prominent opponents to Nazism and establishes Mann as a significant figure in the wartime global republic of letters. Winner of the 1929 Nobel Prize in literature for such works as Buddenbrooks and The Magic Mountain, Mann began his self-imposed exile in the United States in 1938, having fled his native Germany in the wake of Nazi persecution and public burnings of his books.
