Tip: To sort articles by Rankā€¦

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search. This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search. Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Just as there is a model Thomas Mann hero it in the novels and stories, there is also a model Thomas Mann reader who is able to recognize and identify himself with the hero on the basis of his own drive and narcissistic conflicts. The reader can follow the development of the literary figures beginning with the "disgust with

life" in the early works up to the acceptance of inner reality. In re-enacting this development, the reader has the opportunity to constitute a narcissistic equilibrium and a coherent self.
