Thomas Mann was a German novelist, short story writer, social critic, philanthropist, essayist, and 1929 Nobel Prize laureate, known for his series of highly symbolic and ironic epic novels and novellas, noted for their insight into the psychology of the artist and the intellectual. His analysis and critique of the European and German soul used modernized German and Biblical stories, as well as the ideas of Goethe, Nietzsche, and Schopenhauer. His older brother was the radical writer Heinrich Mann, and three of his six children, Erika Mann, Klaus Mann and Golo Mann, also became important German writers. When Hitler came to power in 1933, Mann fled to Switzerland. When World War II broke out in 1939, he emigrated to the United States, from where he returned to Switzerland in 1952. Thomas Mann is one of the best-known exponents of the so-called Exilliteratur.

In seinem berühmten »Idyll« aus dem Jahr 1919 erzählt Thomas Mann von den täglichen Spaziergängen mit seinem deutschen Hühnerhund Bauschan in der Umgebung des Münchner Wohnhauses und in den Isar-Auen. Mit unnachahmlicher Ironie zeichnet er das anrührende Porträt einer Hundeseele, deren Schwächen und Schrullen allzu menschlich scheinen. Doch bei aller Gewohnheit und Sympathie – stets bleibt dem Erzähler bewusst, wie fremd der Hund am Ende bleibt: ein treuer Freund und unheimlicher Gast zugleich.
