Death in Venice

A man of a certain age who falls for a young thing ought to know it can only end in pain, although granted Cholera is going a bit over the score.

Von Eschenbach does not deserve out sympathy, though he does merit some pity.

The book is a cautionary tale for gentlemen on the whole.

It would be most unfortunate to make a fool of oneself at this stage.
