    At the time of reading, this was my favorite Hesse book and, indeed, it is probably his quintessential novel, the one to recommend for anyone wanting to check him out I have given away copies of it for this purpose to several persons over the years.Contrary to the description in Wikipedia, I read the novel from the perspective of Goldmund being lost and then found Seduced by the snares of the world, he leaves the peace of the monastic life for a life of trial and error, ultimately, as an old m

    Can I just say that I absolutely love Hermann Hesse For me his words speak directly to my soul I have never exclusively followed an author except Hesse He is absolutely brilliant and his works are so nuanced to the point where they only mean anything to the reader unless they can relate in some profound way I have now finished all of his major works and I must say bravo All of his books are about the turmoil and duality of the human soul He speaks my language My next goal is to learn Ge

    This is not a review This is an expression of gratitude Enlightened does not begin to describe the feeling one gets when eyes see, mind is set in motion, and images are processed into thoughts that seed the way we look at everything We SEE everything in a new light, at least for as long as we remember what is important, what makes a difference The beginning of our true life I suppose all we can ask of our mind is for a few moments of enlightenment at a time And, to remember Too much would

    When I was a child my parents used to punish me for my bad actions in their own way I often had the prohibition of reading for a week Of course I wasn t so nerd at that time and together with reading there could be no tv, no bmx rides with friends, no late night awake and all sorts of normal don ts.But the worst one was definitely the no reading week.Later in my teenage years, I remember how my mum was very glad about my reading activity, but not particularly interested in influencing that

    Noi pensatori cerchiamo di avvicinarci a Dio staccando il mondo da lui Tu ti avvicini a lui amando e ricreando la sua creazione Sono entrambe opere umane e inadeguate, ma l arte pi innocente Questo non un libro che andrebbe letto a diciannove anni Diciannove sono gi troppi Andrebbe letto prima, a quattordici o a quindici, quando il mondo lo si vede ancora in modo diverso Io, da ragazzo, ci leggo qualcosa di diverso rispetto a quello che avrei potuto leggerci da ragazzino O rispet

    Philosophical Definitely Novel Entertainment oh yes What the author meant by this writing Well, like any true art that depends on the audience I can go into all the philosophical existential yakkity yak that a lot of other people might get from Narcissus and Goldmund, but instead I m gonna give you the nuts and bolts ie pared down yakkity yak of what I saw in it.Goldmund is a born artist with a innate bent toward the agony and bliss of wanting to eat life not just watch it parade on by

    If you have a penchant for poetic language, a love for new experiences, and a sensitivity to life s struggles, you will find hope and deep beauty in this story I recommend finding a place of solitude and spiritual transcendence before delving into this as you will inevitably flip back to the beginning once finished and have to read it again If I know what love is, it is because of you.It is not our purpose to become each other it is to recognize each other, to learn to see the other and honor
