Product Details

Praise

“Nationalist, patriotic, conservative, and spiritually autobiographical . . . it is a strange, enormously, clever (also foolish) and (in an alarming sense) fascinating piece, of sustained, often anguished and sometimes contorted eloquence.” —D. J. Enright, Times Literary Supplement

“Reflections helps us to understand the problem that has not gone away: the dilemma of the intellectual (the writer, the artist) in politics.” —Walter Laqueur, The New York Times Book Review

“At long last, a magnificent full translation of Mann’s untimely masterpiece . . . an obviously complex and profound work.” —Choice

“Without the impassioned patriotic document it is impossible to see Mann’s artistic and political development in the right perspective.” —Erich Heller

“[Reflections of a Nonpolitical Man] feels not just worthy of our attention but somehow indispensable. . . . The idea that we do damage to life’s most important elements when we use them instrumentally, for political ends, poses a real challenge to our moment, obsessed as it is with the political responsibility of the artist.” —Christopher Beha, The New York Times Book Review
