REVIEW Á Der Tod in Venedig Thomas Mann Ö 1 REVIEW Ty besieged by an unnamed epidemic he becomes obsessed with an exuisite 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. As long as we breathe we live We do not possess the power to embrace death at will So we live And for living we cling to a purpose The purpose may be clear or clouded animate or inanimate expressed or hidden stable or fickle but we have it nonetheless Even the person accused of leading a purposeless life is surviving on the shredded purpose of vagrancySo it doesn t come as a surprise that even Gustav Aschenbach notwithstanding the fame and dignity safely held in his bag of accolades gropes for purpose in his new found state of ripe mind Nothing is a bigger curse for a writer than to have hit a plateau from where all the previous works appear a distant dream and the present air leaves nothing for the fertile imagination to latch on In search of this elusive purpose after declaring many destinations unfit for ideation he halts at Venice at a uaint hotel and opens the window of his room to the sea inviting both its calmness and ferocity to wash his rusted mind panes with inspiring wavesAnd the sea obliges in the form of the ethereal Tadzio who happens to be a guest of the same hotel as Gustav The stunning beauty of this young Polish boy of golden skin flowing locks delicately crafted ribs and carefree demeanour first catches Gustav unawares and then slowly like a persisting rain fogs his mind panes with sensual dew His senses in a natural gesture follow Tadzio s movements like a sunflower follows the sun s trail From the day he sets his eyes on Tadzio he gets transported to a new world where he increasingly finds just the two of them talking about art and beauty exchanging life wisdoms and sinking in the loving companionship of each other But does this throbbing one sided passion render a purpose to the debilitating parchment of his life or relegate it further to insurmountable lows Hold the hand of Mann to find out And yes he has a lot to say in this compact workHe softly pits intellectual beauty against corporeal beauty and uestions whether attaining the fulsome body of the former can in any way deride the necessity of the latter s blossoming He also nudges us to consider the propriety of actions taken under the influence of relationships which in the safety net of sanguinity can deluge the delicate fabric of morality He also presses us to weigh the artistic liberties in the light of societal approvals and take a standFor the striking uestions and delicately coherent wordplay I was about to give this work a rating of four But Mann snatched the solitary star from my hand by playing this masterstroke A dream where Gustav has donned the garb of Socrates and Tadzio of Phaedo and the former is giving his life lessons to the young warrior of tomorrow Because beauty Phaedo is the only thing that is divine and visible at the same time and so it is the way of the artist to the soul But do you believe my dear Phaedo that the one who reaches the intellectual through the senses can ever achieve wisdom and human dignity Or do you believe and I am leaving this to you that it is a lovely but dangerous road that leads nowhere Because you have to realize that we artists cannot take the path of beauty without Eros joining us and becoming our leader we may be heroes in our own way but we are still like women because passion is what elevates us and our desire is love that is our lust and our disgrace Do you see that poets can be neither sage nor dignified We do not like final knowledge because knowledge Phaedo has no dignity or severity it knows understands forgives without attitude it is sympathetic to the abyss it is the abyss An artist is able when he can turn thought to emotion and emotion to thought with eual finesse But he is legendary when he can turn a non artist artist And I know Gustav in the end did both jobs well The Defiant Debutante doom Mann wrote But the problem I had especially in mind was that of the artist's Gold Rush Groom dignity.

Der Tod in Venedig

REVIEW Á Der Tod in Venedig Thomas Mann Ö 1 REVIEW The world famous masterpiece by Nobel laureate Thomas Mann here in a new translation by Michael Henry HeimPublished on the eve of World War I a decade after Buddenbrooks had established Thomas Mann as a literary celebr. Brilliant prose expertly crafted and an audacious masterful blending of mythology allusion and symbolism In many ways a work of considerable geniusUnfortunately the story itself felt ho hum and left me cold and rather unenthused Given this considerable dichotomy between the me that was significantly impressed by Mann s obvious talent and the emotional enjoyment centric me left wanting by a narrative that seemed dry and lifeless I ve resolved to revisit this work in a few years it s only 150 pages for a follow up Hopefully at that point one of me will hold sway For nowboth of me will straddle the fence of wishy washy indecision However regardless of whether my future interactions with the story add to or subtract from my first impression there s no denying that there is much to admire even be amazed by in this slim tightly compacted work loaded with full bodied ideas I just wished for a deeper connection to the characters and the tale PLOT SUMMARYIt s the early 20th century and in a decaying Europe that is drifting towards war an austere deeply repressed author suffers from a severe bout of writer s block To clear his mind and get his creative juices flowing again Gustav von Aschenbach takes a holiday and winds up amidst the beautiful decadence of Venice This was Venice the flattering and suspect beauty this city half fairy tale and half tourist trap in whose insalubrious air the arts once rankly and voluptuously blossomed where composers have been inspired to lulling tones of somniferous eroticism While there von Aschensbach becomes infatuated with the striking classical beauty of a teenage boy named Tadzio Slowly the writer begins to lose control of his emotional austerity as his long bottled passions avalanche over him Despite never acting on his impulse of having any contact with the youth whatsoever von Aschenbach s infatuation descends into a destructive obsession that leaves him unhinged and adrift from his rationalityMeanwhile a deadly cholera epidemic is stealthily spreading through the city and von Aschenbach though he can feel the onset of symptoms is too enthralled to make his escape Eventuallya death occursin Venice THOUGHTSDespite being written by a German author about a Prussian author and set in 20th century Italy this story has Greek tragedy written all over it Mann s story is steeped in allusions to mythology and is strongly influenced by Plato s The Symposium and Phaedrus carrying forward their central arguments regarding the man s struggle between passion and wisdomHaving not read either of these works I m sure there are some references that strolled right past me without me having a clue they were even in the room Nevertheless I don t think a familiarity with these texts is essential to enjoying this story though it could certainly enhance itIn keeping with the Greek sympathies central to Mann s novella the relationship between von Aschenbach and Tadzio the boy is clearly a reference to the platonic ideal of erotic love described by Plato and Socrates Additionally Mann includes a whole host of mythological allusions to highlight our protagonist s psychological and physical demise beginning with von Aschenbach s gondola ride into Venice that mirrors the journey of many a Greek hero into Hades At its heart this is a cautionary tale regarding the danger of extremes and the need to maintain a sense of balance in the conduct of one s life Mann shows us someone who has lived a carefully controlled passion free life in the pursuit of moral intellectual art When we first encounter von Aschenbach he is an emotional corpse existing in the extreme state of pure reason and utter sensual denial Mann shows us this not as an ideal but as one end of the spectrum to be avoided Now when confronted with the exotic sensation filled atmosphere of Venice von Aschenbach s suppressed desires bubble to the surface and his carefully constructed intellect driven world crumbles in the face of the onslaught His head and his heart were drunk and his steps followed the dictates of that dark god whose pleasure it is to trample man s reason and dignity underfoot Swiftly our protagonist finds himself at the other extreme a slave to his passions the object of which is encapsulated in the character of Tadzio Excessively rigid morality exchanged for unrestrained passionreason abandoned and moderation impossible von Aschenbach s world deteriorates under the weight of his unchecked desires It is his falling from one extreme to another and his inability to achieve a balance that leads eventually to his self destruction My biggest problem with the above is that understood it without feeling it I would spot an allusion that Mann was incorporating and think how impressive it wasbut it never translated into an emotional connection to the story Thus I was kept at a distance from the story and this left me feeling less enad with the work as a whole than its prodigious technical achievements might otherwise merit Still as I mention above there is much to love about this work and part of my tepid reaction to the story may be my unfamiliarity with some of the source texts that Mann draws upon for inspiration I intend to visit Plato s The Symposium andor Phaedrus and check back in with this work further down the road For now an impressed 35 stars Highly recommended A
