Death in Venice

4.88

 

Death in Venice, a stunning novella and tour de force, 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.

Published in hundreds of editions and translated into virtually every modern language, it has not been out of print since 1912.

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, essayist, and the 1929 Nobel Prize in Literature laureate. His highly symbolic epic novels and novellas are noted for their insight into the psychology of the artist and the intellectual. He is best remembered for such classics as Death in Venice, Buddenbrooks, The Magic Mountain, and Joseph and his Brothers.
