There is an echo through the works of great authors: they repeat theirselves on and on. Sometimes profoundly, others not that deep, their writings frequently surround the same themes.

It's not different in this novel. Tonio Kroeger pre-announces some of Mann's greatests concerns to be better developed later in his short stories and romances.

The passage of time, solitude, the artist's exile from reality and maybe even homossexuality are some of what we'll find here as Mann introduces us to Tonio Kroeger, a boy who never felt quite like the others.
