    Fifty Years of Thomas Mann Studies
    Book Description:

    Fifty Years of Thomas Mann Studies was first published in 1955. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions. For many years students of Thomas Mann have felt the need for a guide to the vast labyrinth of literature about Mann. This bibliography answers that need, providing a comprehensive survey of the critical and biographical material that has been written in the past half century. Mr. Jonas has based his compilation on his extensive collection of material about Mann, years of research in American libraries, and a worldwide correspondence. Thomas Mann has written a foreword in German. The bibliography lists a total of 3010 books, articles, pamphlets, and unpublished dissertations or studies in progress. They are in 17 different languages, the larges number in English and German. Of the listings, some 2200 are articles from periodicals, newspapers, or yearbooks; about 350 are books that contain some information about Mann and another 90 or so are books or pamphlets devoted exclusively to Mann. The remainder are unpublished works. The entries are arranged according to subject categories, with numerous cross-references. Writings by Mann himself have been included only when they contain self-criticism or autobiographical material that throws light on his though or art. A checklist of Mann’s most important publications in German and English is included. Indexes for both subject and author add to the usefulness of the material.
