Gustav Aschenbach is a respected writer beyond his prime who comes to Venice in the beginning of the century. Here he falls in love irreconcilably (but platonically) with the beauty of a young Pole who represents in his eyes the vigor of youth and the Greek ideal which he admires so much. The news of a cholera epidemic in Venice fails to move the aging man, and he prefers to remain and observe from afar the object of his passion.
