Steppenwolf Steppenwolf Is A Poetical Self Portrait Of A Man Who Felt Himself To Be Half Human And Half Wolf This Faust Like And Magical Story Is Evidence Of Hesse S Searching Philosophy And Extraordinary Sense Of Humanity As He Tells Of The Humanization Of A Middle Aged Misanthrope Yet This Novel Can Also Be Seen As A Plea For Rigorous Self Examination And An Indictment Of The Intellectual Hypocrisy Of The Period As Hesse Himself Remarked, Of All My Books Steppenwolf Is The One That Was Often And Violently Misunderstood Than Any Other

    Hermann Hesse s words are timeless Here they represent an entire disaffected generation, a generation who is on the cusp of radical change but still partly exists in the old world They are out of space and out of time they are lost within themselves However, such things can aptly be applied to a number of individuals across the ages And, for me, this is what made the novel so great Through these pages Hesse evokes a character I have seen many times before across literature, but never befor Hermann Hesse s words are timeless Here they represent an entire disaffected generation, a generation who is on the cusp of radical change but still partly exists in the old world They are out of space and out of time they are lost within themselves However, such things can aptly be applied to a number of individuals across the ages And, for me, this is what made the novel so great Through these pages Hesse evokes a character I have seen many times before across literature, but never before with such clarity Harry Haller is one such man His intellect is, undoubtedly, worthy of genius, though such a thing is wasted because he has no proper channel for such intellect He has lost his faith in humanity and has completely withdrawn from the world, so he makes his own world he has created his own ideal environment within his thoughts His loneliness is that extreme, he has written an idealised account of his life that never happened He wants hope, so he creates it himself in the form ...

    Likely the dumbest Important Book that I ve read.Yeah, it s cool that the narrator thinks he s a werewolf, but is really just a recluse pseudo academic and then reads a manuscript that describes fake werewolves and outs them as poseurs Cool, also, that the preface, by the manuscript s fictional finder and publisher, records the impression that the horrors of the middle ages were non existent A man of the Middle Ages would detest the whole mode of our present day life as something farth Likely the dumbest Important Book that I...
