These two stories, from Mann's middle period, concern major problems facing Germany between the wars: the first deals with the chaos of economic, social and moral values in the early twenties, and the second with the enslavement of a society by a fanatical and hypnotic dictator. Mario und der Zauberer was written in 1929, at a time when Stalin had seized power, Mussolini was dreaming of the glories of Ancient Rome, and soaring unemployment in Germany was bringing a surge to Hitler's party.
