Doctor Faustus is a play about desire: for the best in life, for knowledge, power, material comfort, and influence. Faustus sells.
Chaim Breisacher, to cast down the idols of the older generation. In , Ines Rodde marries, but forms an adulterous love for Rudi Schwerdtfeger. Adrian begins to experience illnesses of retching, headaches and migraines, but is producing new and finer music, preparing the way for his great work, the oratorio Apocalypsis cum Figuris 'The Apocalypse with Figures'. Schwerdtfeger woos himself into Adrian's solitude, asking for a violin concerto that would be like the offspring of their platonic union.
By August Adrian has completed the sketch of Apocalypsis. There is also a new circle of intellectual friends, including Sextus Kridwiss, the art-expert; Chaim Breisacher; Dr.
In their discussions they declare the need for the renunciation of bourgeois softness and a preparation for an age of pre-medieval harshness. Adrian writes to Zeitblom that collectivism is the true antithesis of Bourgeois culture; Zeitblom observes that aestheticism is the herald of barbarism.
John narrator. Zeitblom describes the work as filled with longing without hope, with hellish laughter transposed and transfigured even into the searing tones of spheres and angels. Adrian, producing the concerto which Rudi solicited, attempts to evade his contract and obtain a wife by employing Rudi as the messenger of his love. She however prefers Rudi himself, and not Adrian. Soon afterwards Rudi is shot dead in a tram by Ines out of jealousy.
As Adrian begins to plan the second oratorio The Lamentation of Doctor Faustus, in , his sister's child Nepomuk is sent to live with him.
The boy, who calls himself "Echo", is beloved by all. As the work of gigantic dimensions develops in Adrian's mind, the child falls ill and dies, and Adrian, despairing, believes that by gazing at him with love, in violation of his contract, he has killed him with poisonous and hellish influences. The score of the Lamentation is completed in , Adrian summons his friends and guests, and instead of playing the music he relates the story of his infernal contract, and descends into the brain disease which lasts until his death ten years later.
Zeitblom visits him occasionally, and survives to witness the collapse of Germany's "dissolute triumphs" as he tells the story of his friend.
Sources and origins Mann published his own account of the genesis of the novel in Helen Lowe-Porter , the novel's first English translator, wrote of its themes, 'Readers of Faustus will and must be involved, with shudders, in all three strands of the book: the German scene from within, and its broader, its universal origins; the depiction of an art not German alone but vital to our whole civilization; music as one instance of the arts and the state in which the arts find themselves today [sc.
The illnesses of Delius and Wolf also resonate, as does the death of Mahler 's child after he had tempted fate as Alma Mahler thought by setting the Kindertotenlieder. Nieztsche's work The Birth of Tragedy from the Spirit of Music , presents the theme that the evolution of Art is bound up with the duality of the Apollonian and Dionysian Hellenic impulses, which the novel illuminates.
Perhaps the 'serene' Zeitblom and the tragical Leverkuhn personify such a duality between impulses towards reasoned, contemplative progress, and those toward passion and tragic destiny, within character or creativity in the context of German society.
Adrian's mood is closer to my own than one might — and ought to — think. Mann also read chapters to groups of invited friends a method also used by Kafka to test the effect of the text. Schoenberg lived near Mann in Los Angeles as the novel was being written. He was very annoyed by this appropriation without his consent, and later editions of the novel included an Author's Note at the end acknowledging that the technique was Schoenberg's intellectual property, and that passages of the book dealing with musical theory are indebted in many details to Schoenberg's Harmonielehre.
As a model for the composer-legend Mann was strongly aware of Hans Pfitzner 's opera Palestrina , premiered at Munich in Naming Throughout the work personal names are used allusively to reflect the paths of German culture from its medieval roots.
