Philosophos
Buddenbrooks is the first work of one of the most important German writers, Thomas Mann, masterfully initiating his literary career.

The story is based on a small saga of an important family, which in a few generations, passes into a decadence characterized by apathy, uncertainties and tragedies.
However, it is beautifully narrated with the density of Mann, in the characterization of scenarios, situations and psychological approach of the characters.

Probably influenced by Schopenhauer, the book leads to a resigned but hopeful ending about family ties (and plot) to the almost Stoic stage of acceptance despite death and the "circumstantial trajectory" of decadence.

It is a masterpiece indeed, giving the Nobel Prize (1929) to the author.
