Featuring his world famous masterpiece Death in Venice this new collection of Nobel laureate Thomas Mann s stories and novellas reveals his artistic evolution In this new widely acclaimed translation that restores the controversial passages that were cut out of the original English version Death in Venice tells about a ruinous quest for love and beauty amid degenerating splendor Gustav von Aschenbach 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 Also included in this volume are eleven other stories by Mann Tonio Kroger Gladius Dei The Blood of the Walsungs The Will for Happiness Little Herr Friedmann Tobias Mindernickel Little Lizzy Tristan The Starvelings The Wunderkind and Harsh Hour All of the stories collected here display Mann s inimitable use of irony his subtle characterizations and superb complex plots, The world famous masterpiece by Nobel laureate Thomas Mann here in a new translation by Michael Henry Heim br Published on the eve of World War I a decade after Buddenbrooks had established Thomas Mann as a literary celebrity Death in Venice tells the story of Gustav von Aschenbach a successful but aging writer who follows his wanderlust to Venice in search of spiritual fulfillment that instead leads to his erotic doom br In the decaying city besieged by an unnamed epidemic he becomes obsessed with an exquisite Polish boy Tadzio It is a story of the voluptuousness of doom Mann wrote But the problem I had especially in mind was that of the artist s dignity, In this dizzyingly rich novel of ideas Mann uses a sanatorium in the Swiss Alps a community devoted exclusively to sickness as a microcosm for Europe which in the years before was already exhibiting the first symptoms of its own terminal irrationality The Magic Mountain is a monumental work of erudition and irony sexual tension and intellectual ferment a book that pulses with life in the midst of death, Thomas Mann s final novel recounts the strange and entranced career of the gifted swindler Felix Krull through his childhood and early manhood Krull is a man unhampered by moral precepts that govern the conduct of ordinary mortals and this natural lack of scruple coupled with his formidable mental and physical endowments enables him to develop the arts of subterfuge and deception with astonishing success and to rise swiftly from poverty to affluence Following Krull along the shady paths his nature has destined him to take the reader moves through a world peopled by bizarre characters from the lowest to the highest reaches of European society Chameleon like Krull readily adapts himself to the situation of the moment and so adept in the practices of chicanery does he become that his victims almost seem to count themselves privileged And so it is too with the women who encounter the irresistible Krull for where Krull is the normal laws of human behavior are in suspense br br Originally the character of Felix Krull appeared in a short story Mann wrote in The story wasn t published until in the book i Stories of Three Decades i along with other stories written from to the year in which he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature Much later he expanded the original story into a novel managing to finish and publish Part The Early Years of the i Confessions of Felix Krull i to great public success Due to Mann s death in the saga of the morally flexible and irresistible con man remains unfinished
