Buddenbrooks by Thomas Mann

By Thomas Mann

Denna bok kommer att växa med tiden och bli läst av generationer?, skrev en tysk recensent när Thomas Manns debutroman Buddenbrooks kom ut 1901. Boken erövrade världen och bidrog starkt until att Thomas Mann tilldelades nobelpriset 1929.
Romanen skildrar en familjs utveckling less than fyra generationer från köpmän until konstnärer. Den utspelas i Lübeck, den gamla hansastaden, som här lever upp med sin hamn, sina gator, torg och idylliska omgivningar.
Thomas Mann härstammade själv från en gammal köpmanssläkt i Lübeck och hans roman bygger i stor utsträckning på hans egna upplevelser. Den smärtsamma slitning som han hade känt inom sig mellan faderns trygga borgerlighet och moderns konstnärstemperament speglas i bokens konflikt mellan livskraftiga vardagsmänniskor och ömtåliga konstnärsnaturer.
Därför är Buddenbrooks också mycket mer än en berättelse om en högborgerlig släkts öden. Den är liksom Thomas Manns hela författarskap ett slags andlig självbiografi.
Nu kommer detta mästerverk i en efterlängtad long island svensk översättning (den tidigare är från 1904 och har sedan dess reviderats vid ett par tillfällen). En av höstens stora litterära händelser!

Sample text

Thus silence and darkness Muzzle all adulteration. The sky, in seven-league boots, Strides towards the crossroads of sound. The star eats. The tilted sky Begins its flight towards the peaks, Night sweeps up the scraps Of our gratifying meal. A slug walks the earth, Ten thousand whites touch their caps A slug crawls Where the earth vanished. Yet angels, uncalled by obscenity, Returned in peace When arose the true voice Of the summoning spirit. The sun, lower than day, Turned the ocean to steam 33 A strange yet clear dream Was born on the crumbling earth.

And the noise's muffied sheath bore the dull entreaty and penetration of a living look. Yes, the air spewed out its full mental padding where no thought was yet clear or able to replenish its unloaded objects. But little by little the mass turned like powerful, slimy nausea, a sort of huge influx of vegetal thundering blood. And the rootlets trembled on the borders of my mind's eye, broke away with dizzy speed from the wind's contracted mass. And all the air shook like sexual organs ransacked by the fiery, heavenly globe.

Tiny rootlets filled the wind like a network of veins and their switches flashed. The air was measurable and grinding, but had no penetrable form. And its eye was a mosaic of bursts, a sort of hard cosmic hammer distorted by weight, ceaselessly dropping like a brow in space, with a seemingly distilled sound. And the noise's muffied sheath bore the dull entreaty and penetration of a living look. Yes, the air spewed out its full mental padding where no thought was yet clear or able to replenish its unloaded objects.
