Abstract

B OOK R EVIEWS and Nietzsche as tragic Hamlet-like figures (93). She also finds that his 1947 lecture is a critique of Nietzsche's politics but not a disavowal of Nietzsche as an artist (92). Whether or not you find Picart's arguments convincing will depend on the weight you give to the matter of Dürer's magic square as an effective interpretive lens through which to gage the relationship between Nietzsche and Mann, and whether or not you find that it is in his later disavowals of Nietzsche that Mann "proves himself the ultimate Nietzschean by recovering his teacher through slaying him" (94). It will also depend on your accepting Picart's readings of Nietzsche at face value; for though her book is filled with analyses and interpretations of Mann's work that alert us to the controversies surrounding these interpretations and allow us to assess Picart's position with respect to current scholarship, there is no comparable survey of the Nietzsche scene. For example, when Picart tells us that Mann is anti-Nietzschean when he rejects "Nietzsche's concepts of the Übermensch or blond beast" (6), there is no discussion of the problematics of this association of Übermensch with blond beast.
