1909, Thomas Mann, Nobel Laureate, Der kleine Herr Friedemann und andere Novellen


“Little Herr Friedemann” reflects a Naturalist predilection for unpleasant themes. In the work is present the author’s typical parodistic opening where he uses sophisticated detachment and understatement to make the sad fate of a child at the hands of his nurse seem tragicomic. Also present is the hero’s public confession before his descent into madness.
