Description
Information
In an acclaimed new translation that restores the controversial passages censored from the original English version, 'Death in Venice' recounts a ruinous quest for love and beauty amid degenerating splendor. Gustav von Aschenback, a successful but lonely author, travels to the Queen of the Adriatic in search of an elusive spiritual fulfillment that turns into his erotic doom. Spellbound by a beautiful Polish boy, he finds himself fettered to this hypnotic city of sun-drenched sensuality and eerie physical decay as it gradually succumbs to a secret epidemic.
