The translation by Willard Trask makes it yet clearer how unfortunate the English world was to have Mann introduced to it through Helen Lower-Porter.

The Black Swan (in German, Die Betrogene: Erzählung) is a German novella written by Thomas Mann, first published in 1954. A period work, it takes place in Düsseldorf, Germany, in the late 1930s. Rosalie, a 50-year-old widow, finds her youthful manner diminished by the "organic phenomena of her time of life," or menopause. She lives with her adult unmarried daughter and an adolescent son, both of whom juxtapose youth to her "superannuated" purpose in life.
