Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

“A poetic novel unique in its fascination.” —Thomas Mann

“Hesse was a great writer in precisely the modern sense: complex, subtle, allusive; alive to the importance of play, to the desperate yet frolicsome game of writing....Narcissus and Goldmund is his very best....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.” —The New York Times Book Review

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

Format: Taschenbuch
Throughout this beautifully-written and mystical book, Hermann Hesse continuously explores the conflicts we all face as we search for our true identity...that which best expresses the essence of who we truly are.
Pure Appolonian and Dionysian archetypes, Narcissus and Goldmund are two medieval men whose characters are actually metaphors for the book's underlying theme of the universal phenomenon of the search for self through life experience.
Brother Narcissus, a monk at the Mariabronn cloister is the epitome of the analytical intellectual; his student, the young Goldmund, is the total opposite, an individual with the soul of an artist and a lover, born to live life to the fullest, yet fighting his desires due to paternal forces. It is Narcissus who recognizes Goldmund as "a dreamer with the soul of a child," and urges him to leave the cloister and pursue the life he was meant to lead.
Acknowledging his suppressed childhood and, most of all, the image of his mother, Goldmund leaves Mariabronn and becomes a wanderer of the medieval countryside, a seducer and lover of women and a student of painting and sculpture. It is through the revival of the memory of his mother that Goldmund is able to accept his life as a free spirit and yield to the temptations of love.
Goldmund had remembered little of his childhood and next to nothing of his mother. "Mother had been a subject he was forbidden to mention--something to be ashamed of. She had been a dancer, a wild and beautiful woman of noble, though poor birth.

This is an amazing masterpiece. I read it in Chinese when I was in China and at that time I was feeling lost in pursuit of the meaning of life. The story changed my life and I am so influenced by Goldmund. Since I came to a school in Oklahoma, I've been looking for it for a long time. 'cause I don't know its English name and the name of author at that time. Recently, after reading the novel -- "Siddhartha", I suddenly realized that they must be written by the same author. Thanks Amazon.com for giving me a chance to find the book, see so many readers of "Narcissus and Goldmund" and share their comments. The story is fovever on my mind.

Format: Taschenbuch
I first read Narcissus and Goldmund when I was about 20. The conflicts between mind/heart, reason/passion, intellect/emotion were the fulcrum around which my personal voyage of self-discovery turned - at that age.
Now, at 42, I have reread this book. I never appreciated the first time 'round that Hess was describing a completed life. I was too fixated on Goldmund's emancipation through travel. But in the end, after his return to the cloister to create true art, Goldmund hit the road again. He tried in vain to recapture youth only to be spurned by Agnes, the woman he considered to be the most beautiful - and the most like himself. This was a classic description of what we now call the "mid-life crisis".
Neither Narcissus nor Goldmund ended up truly happy, I believe. But that is not the point at all. There was a mutual recognition of the richness in their separate lives. And there was a love and a respect for those differences.
As we all grow up it is these deeper lessons that Hess seeks to impart to us. I'm glad I picked up this excellent book once again and am not surprised to see other reviewers who have done the same with similar results.
A book for living dangerously, and fully.
DH

So are you spiritual? Are you in touch with the other side? Or do you just live your life sensually, in touch with the Earth, instinctual and materialistic? Are you Narcissus? Or are you Goldmund? This is the story of the two sides of human nature set in the backdrop of the path of two friends, Narcissus, the priest, a spiritual God-fearing man and Goldmund, the lover, the traveller, the artist. This book describes the experiences of the two friends in life and love and makes it clear that we all have a little bit of Narcissus and Goldmund inside of us...very nice...

What the last reader who was so impressed with himself and his great writing (which is a joke) missed, is the fact that the characters of Narcissus and Goldmund were not meant to be two different people, but sides of the same person. Why write a poor review and show your ignorance? There is a reason why Hesse is renowned as a great author and if this guy missed why that is, it reflects more on him than Hesse or the rest of the world. I guess he'll miss that also.

This is where Hermann Hesse is really at home, in the streets and villages and countryside of old Europe. One wonders what he must have been thinking as much of it was bombed into oblivion in the 1940s. It is certainly a very idyllic place, and one in which it might have been, under certain conditions, pleasant to live. Social politics is not Hesse's strong point; he is more concerned with the individual. In this novel Hesse takes us into the Europe of the Middle Ages to explore the relationship between student and master. I think it is really my favourite, but then, there are so many trying to lay claim to the title, it's hard to be sure. It is a book about youth, about enquiry and about travelling, all at once. Hesse's writing, or the very fine translation of it, has a poetic quality that is unsurpassed for me in modern literature. It seems to help the reader form a deeper impression of the very countryside through which this pair of travellers passes. At the same time, there is a landscape of the mind to which one wishes to return, time and again. For me, Narcissus and Goldmund is a voyage into a time lost, where the very air is somehow rarefied and the colours of grassy fields are at once, soft and vibrant. Tremendous writing; timeless literature.
