„Amazonka i Erynia”, czyli Eryki Mann zmagania z życiem (1905–1969)
MetadataShow full item record
This paper provides an image of complex fortunes of Eryka Mann, the eldest daughter of novelist Thomas Mann, one of the six of his children. She had many talents and did various jobs: as an actress, a journalist, a feature writer, a war correspondent, and as a writer of children’s literature. After Hitler came to power, she left Germany, following other members of Mann family. When in exile, she was directing “Die Pfeffermühle”, a political cabaret, and she was a lecturer in the United States, and then, after the Second World War, she was an assistant of her father and a rescuer of his literary legacy. From a long perspective, she might be treated as a paradigm of an emancipated woman, who was intellectually active and sharp in her opinions, uncompromising in her fight for liberties in the public sphere as well as in private.
