Death in Venice, a stunning novella and tour de force, it is one of the most hauntingly magnificent tales of erotic doom and self-destruction ever written, and reveals the astounding range, subtlety, artistry, and depth of thought of a true literary master, Thomas Mann.
Transfixed and hopelessly attracted to a beautiful Polish boy named Tadzio, Gustav von Aschenbach, a world-famous author, finds himself trapped by his obsession and unable to leave his decaying vacation paradise as so many around him succumb to an undisclosed and highly infectious epidemic.
It can be found on countless lists of the finest literary works of all time, and is one of Thomas Mann’s greatest achievements.
THOMAS MANN (1875 –1955) was a German novelist, short story writer, social critic, philanthropist, and essayist. In 1929 he received the Nobel Prize for Buddenbrooks. Among his other masterworks are The Magic Mountain, Joseph and His Brothers, Buddenbrooks, Doctor Faustus, and Felix Krull.
