Within their love obsessions, both Aschenbach and Florentino follow their obsessions around to a point of stalking.Aschenbach and Florentino both place themselves in a position to see their obsessions, giving them the ability to watch from a distance. Aschenbach would get up early and go to the beach just to see Tadzio playing in the water. He would stay there all day, and then at dinner, sit at a table far enough away to where he could watch him from a distance. Unlike Florentino, Achenbach’s platonic love never reached Tadzio, and he never had a conversation with him.
