Description

Death in Venice is a story of obsession. Gustave von Aschenbach is a successful but ageing writer who travels to Venice for a holiday. One day, he notices an exceptionally beautiful young boy who is staying with his family in the same hotel. Soon Aschenbach’s days begin to revolve around seeing this boy and he is too distracted to pay attention to the ominous rumours of disease spreading through the city. This volume includes six additional stories: Little Herr Friedemann; The Joker; The Road to the Churchyard; Gladius Dei; Tristan; and Tonio Kröger.
