Edition Details:

Language: English

Translated by: H. T. Lowe-Porter
  • "The story of The Transposed Heads is at once the quintessence and the reductio ad absurdum of all love triangles." Lionel Trilling
  • "The Transposed Heats is altogether delightful, worthy of rank with Tonio Kröger or Death in Venice. It is certainly the most charming of Mann's works. His irony has never been more biting; it has never been more tender. Mann has never shown greater insight into love, nor greater kindness toward humanity. Th sustained lightness of tone leaves a singleness of impression perhaps impossible to attain in longer works of fiction....The Transposed Heads is, in short, a restatement in parable form of Mann's intransigent faith in the human intellect. It is also a rich an subtle analysis of the psychology of love and friendship." Curtis Bradford in The Sewanee Review
