1 Rezension
Thomas Mann (1875-1955) won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1929. This is a collection of his shorter works. "Death in Venice," later filmed by Lucion Visconti starring Dirk Bogarde, was published in 1911. It is a poetic meditation on art and beauty, where the dying composer Aschenbach (modelled on Gustav Mahler) becomes fixated by the young boy Tadzio. The other stories are: "Tonio Kroger"; the collection entitled "Tristan"; "The Blood of the Walsungs"; "Mario the Magician"; and "The Tables of the Law." A number of essays are also included.>

Review: Death in Venice, Tonio Kroger and Other Writings (German Library)

Nutzerbericht  - Ali - Goodreads

I read these in German class and no one does Angst better than the Germans. Not the most uplifting thing I've ever read, but really interesting and excellent if you're in a bit of a dark mood, but don't want to wade through the anxiety of Kafka. Vollständige Rezension lesen
