4.0 out of 5 stars An experience, 9 Mar 2010
This review is from: Death In Venice And Other Stories (Vintage Classics) (Paperback)
Wonderful short stories by Mann. Though he did not consider himself to be a good short-story teller, here he proves how wrong he was. He gives his short stories the breath and width of epic stories. Of course, `Death in Venice' is special. So beautiful, so engaging, so tragic, so mysteriously absorbing and wistful. Its being short is part of its spell: it comes; it conquers; it leaves. More important: it remains. It becomes like a ghost that haunts the mind and heart for ever. Once you read this story, it stays with you. It is more of an experience than a good read. Moving through it, I couldn't but envy readers who can read it in the original.
