Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the greatest short novels of all time, now available in a bold and erotic translation

"Death in Venice" is about a ruinous quest for love and beauty. Gustave von Aschenbach, a successful but lonely author, travels to Venice in search of elusive fulfillment. There he is spellbound by a beautiful Polish boy and finds himself fettered to this hypnotic city of eerie physical decay and sun-drenched sensuality. Renowned for his translations of Franz Kafka and Joseph Roth, Joachim Neugroschel places the true emphasis on Mann's mythic fascination with sexual inhibition and the havoc it wreaks — elements that were downplayed in earlier translations of his fiction. Capturing his evocative and bewitching style as well as his mordant irony, this new translation is the definitive English-language version of Mann's most famous tales and novellas, many of them still controversial today.

The collection includes "The Will for Happiness", "Little Herr Friedemann", "Tobias Mindernickel", "Little Lizzy", "Gladius Dei", "Tristan", "The Starvelings", "Tonio Kroger", "The Wunderkind", "Harsh Hour", and "The Blood of the Walsungs".
