Death in Venice by Luchino Visconti( Visual )

117 editions published between 1971 and 2018 in 10 languages and held by 1,308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Composer Gustav von Aschenbach takes a convalescent holiday at the Venice Lido after the death of his child and the disastrous reception of his new compositions. Bored, he indulges an idle, whimsical, faintly epicurean interest in a beautiful boy sporting on the beach. The boy represents an ideal of perfect physical beauty; his youth and naturalness reproach Aschenbach's vanity and creative sterility. The onset of a deadly pestilence resolves his infatuation, as corruption eventually compromises all ideals

187 editions published between 1960 and 2018 in 8 languages and held by 794 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rocco chronicles the tensions within a southern family - a mother and her five sons - who have moved to a northern Italian city. The drama unfolds in a series of episodes merging into each other in which each of the five sons moves in turn to occupy the centre of the stage. Nowell-Smith suggests that each brother, in a sense, represents a certain kind of solution to the problems faced by a southern immigrant family in this historical moment (the 1950s in Milan) yet they are not typical

Death in Venice( Visual )

5 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A fastidious composer reeling from a disastrous concert, Gustav von Aschenbach (Dirk Bogarde) travels to Venice to recover. There, he is struck by a vision of pure beauty in the form of a young boy named Tadzio (Björn Andrésen), his infatuation developing into an obsession even as rumors of a plague spread through the city. Based on the novella by Thomas Mann, this late masterpiece from Luchino Visconti is a meditation on the nature of art, the allure of beauty, and the inescapability of death. Setting Mann's story of queer desire and bodily decay against the music of Gustav Mahler, it is one of cinema's most exalted literary adaptations
