Death in Venice has become one of the most widely read and influential books ever written.
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.
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 major achievements.
