Mann of course was a fan of Sigmund Freud who was all the rage among avant-garde intellectuals at the time this book was written, so perhaps this inspired him to create a story based on forbidden sexual urges.

He is a man dedicated to his art, disciplined and ascetic to the point of severity, who was widowed at a young age. One night, a dream filled with orgiastic Dionysian imagery reveals to him the sexual nature of his feelings for Tadzio.Baron Moes died on 17 December 1986 in Warsaw and is interred at the graveyard of Pilica, Silesian Voivodeship. Afterward, he begins staring at the boy so openly and following him so persistently that Aschenbach feels the boy's guardians have finally noticed, and they take to warning Tadzio whenever he approaches too near the strange, solitary man.

There was m effort to print the book the way a german book's language appears in the usual printed german editions. Der Protagonist dieser anno 1913 erschienenen Novelle ist die Figur des überfünfzigjährigen Dichters Gustav von Aschenbach, der als Künstler anerkannt und gar mit einem 'von' im Namen geadelt worden ist. Mit dieser höchsten literarischen Ansprüchen genügenden Novelle namens 'Der Tod in Venedig' bot und bietet Thomas Mann (1875-1955) dem Leser eine spannende Symbolgeschichte, die nicht nur mit kunstvoller Sprache atmosphärisch detailliert ausgemalt ist, sondern auch eine tiefsinnige, poetische Darstellung der entlegenen Ebene einer Verwandschaft zwischen Begehr und Tod enthält. He didn't pursue him through all of Venice—that he didn't do—but the boy did fascinate him, and he thought of him often. Immer wieder bedenkt der von der äußeren Erscheinung des Knaben hingerissene Aschenbach die Form so dichterisch-philosophisch, als sei sie etwas an sich Seiendes, etwas Wunderbares, ja: Göttliches: sie sei als Gottesgedanke die eine und reine Vollkommenheit.While shipbound and en route to the island, he sees an elderly man in company with a group of high-spirited youths, who has tried hard to create the illusion of his own youth with a wig, false teeth, make-up, and foppish attire. Later, after spying the boy and his family at a beach, Aschenbach overhears Tadzio, the boy's name, and conceives what he first interprets as an uplifting, artistic interest.

The boy who inspired "Tadzio" was Baron Władysław Moes, whose first name was usually shortened as Władzio or just Adzio. A translation published in 2005 by Michael Henry Heim won the Helen and Kurt Wolff Translator's Prize. There are allusions to his poems about Venice in the novella, and like Aschenbach, he died of cholera on an Italian island.Oder: die einzige Form des Geistigen, die wir Menschen sinnlich empfangen und sinnlich ertragen könnten, sei die Schönheit.

Tadzio was based on a real boy named Władzio whom Mann had observed during his 1911 visit to the city. This story was uncovered by Andrzej Dołęgowski, Thomas Mann's translator, around 1964, and was published in the German press in 1965.Death in Venice ( German: Der Tod in Venedig) is a novella by German author Thomas Mann, published in 1912.
