The Vintage Classics Europeans series - with covers provided by textile design firm Wallace Sewell, these are must-have editions of European masterpieces, celebrating the warp and weft of a shared literary treasuryAging writer Gustave von Aschenbach is disappointed by Venice. The skies are leaden, the air is thick and sultry, and a sickening stench emanates from the murky labyrinth of canals. It would hardly be sensible to stay, especially not when rumours of a 'sickness? spread through the city. And yet Aschenbach cannot leave- he has seen an entirely beautiful young boy and has fallen under an enchantment. He must stay near the boy, though never speaking to him, even until it is too late.Also includes the stories 'LITTLE HERR FRIEDEMANN', 'THE JOKER', 'THE ROAD TO THE CHURCHYARD', 'GLADIUS DEI', 'TRISTAN' and 'TONIO KRUGER'.TRANSLATED FROM THE GERMAN BY DAVID LUKE'Mann was a master magician of German - and world - literature in the twentieth century?
