THOMAS MANN'S MAGIC MOUNTAIN AS A SPACE OF TRANGRESSION

Thomas Mann’s The Magic Mountain is analysed with regard to elements pointing to the transgressive nature of the mountain and its impact on the protagonists of the novel. The author of the article focuses on the impact of time spent in the sanatorium on the mountain on the patients’ perception of the world below, on the plains, taking into account both external and mental changes. The selected fragments refer primarily to the transformations of the main protagonist, i.e. Hans Castorp, but also those of other protagonists, for example Dr Behrens or patients in whom changes of moral character can be observed. Life “up there” prompts people to see the world “down there” differently and thus figures as a place of internal transformation and crossing of boundaries, which should not be seen only topographically in this case.
