"An Deck eines Schiffes auf dem Weg von New York nach Europa sitzt Gustav Mahler. Er ist beru?hmt, der gro?▀te Musiker der Welt, doch sein Ko?rper schmerzt, hat immer schon geschmerzt. Wa?hrend ihn der Schiffsjunge sanft, aber resolut umsorgt, denkt er zuru?ck an die letzten Jahre, die Sommer in den Bergen, den Tod seiner Tochter Maria, die er manchmal noch zu sehen meint. An Anna, die andere Tochter, die gerade unten beim Fru?hstu?ck sitzt, und an Alma, die Liebe seines Lebens, die ihn verru?ckt macht und die er la?ngst verloren hat. Es ist seine letzte Reise." -- "Gustav Mahler sits on the deck of a ship on the way from New York to Europe. He is famous, the greatest musician in the world, but his body hurts, has always hurt. While the cabin boy cared for him gently but resolutely, he thought back to the last few years, the summers in the mountains, the death of his daughter Maria, who he sometimes thought he could still see. To Anna, the other daughter who is sitting downstairs at breakfast, and to Alma, the love of his life that drives him crazy and that he has long since lost. It's his last trip." --… (more)

Der letzte Satz (Transl. "The Last Movement") is a novel by the German author Robert Seethaler (1966). The novel picks up the theme of Mann's Death in Venice, where an old man, supposedly Gustav Mahler, eyes a young boy in Venice. Der letzte Satz could be seen as a variation on that movement. The novel describes a kind of mutual, but distant relationship between Gustave Mahler on board a ship, with a young steward. The book breathes the same atmosphere of loneliness, and detachment as Mann's book, but while the young Tadzio seems coy, the yound man in Der letzte Satz seems warm and devoted to the older man, however, in they do not transcend their given roles.
