Literature Lecture and Lunch: Death in Venice by Thomas Mann
3rd October, 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm£20
PLEASE NOTE THIS LECTURE IS ON A THURSDAY
In this exquisite short novel Mann explores the loss of dignity of an ageing great artist, based on Gustav Mahler. Held captive in a Venice reeking with cholera, Mann’s character exposes the pathetic pursuit of an impossible love. Published in 1912, this is the most perfect of all Thomas Mann’s works.
Part of a series of literature lectures exploring great writers, their lives and their books, followed by a delicious Launde Lunch. Presented by renowned speaker Dr Jane Mackay.
The lecture lasts for approximately one hour and is followed by a two-course lunch in the Abbey Dining Room.
