Death in Venice

Death in Venice - Thomas Mann, Stanley Appelbaum So dense, so lush... exquisite.
Mann was a genius.
And to all those moral apostles pointing their finger at him through the bars of their cages of social normality - please don't judge. Judging art is like judging humanity, because art is the only form left for the soul to express itself in a world full of restrictions and prejudice, otherwise known as morality. And what a sick wor(l)d it is.
