9780720612912: Narcissus and Goldmund (Peter Owen Modern Classic)

Also published as Death and the Lover, this new edition features a foreword from the musician and artist Graham Coxon

 Narcissus is a teacher at Mariabronn, a monastery in medieval Germany, and Goldmund his favorite pupil. While Narcissus remains detached from the world in prayer and meditation, Goldmund runs away from the monastery in pursuit of love. Thereafter he lives a picaresque wanderer’s life, his amatory adventures resulting in pain as well as ecstasy. His eventual reunion with Narcissus brings into focus the diversity between artist and thinker, Dionysian and Apollonian.

About the Author:

Hermann Hesse (1877–1962) was a poet, novelist, and painter whose best-known works include Siddhartha, Steppenwolf, and The Glass Bead Game, for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.

Review:

"What makes this short book so limitlessly vast is the body-and-soul-shaking debate that runs through it, which it has the honesty and courage not to resolve: between the flesh and spirit, art and scientific or religious speculation, action and contemplation, between the wayfaring and the sedentary in us.”  New York Times Book Review

One of the most profound and magical novels published in our age.”  Kirkus Reviews
