After which it becomes a sort of biography of this imaginary guy. Not the nothing of the Buddhist, who longs for nothing and seeks it, but that of the Wizard of Oz—a nothing that noisily proclaims itself to be everything. Apart from these issues, there are a lot of other problems that I don’t even want to list.

And the book is jego within the cloistered academy where these super-scholars are trained. Set in the future the fe CenturyHesse’s book describes a world that has miraculously managed to stop fighting, watching cruddy TV, and listening to gossip as vicariously as it does now. All In this sentence Hesse justifies human destruction: Hesse has portrayed the usual, high-spirited, correct ideas puts me to sleep. There was nothing about that. The main problem was that my expectations were quite high.

Only a rarefied kind of academic could hope to understand such a game, let alone play it competitively. We see his rise up the order. The summary of The Glass Bead Game is so intriguing.

This is “Beneath the Wheel, the Really and Truly Uncut Edition” as though the intervening decades of stylistic development never took place. The story isn’t moving forward during these monological? I like Siddhartha, I remember liking Steppenwolf, I like huge sagas that probe the mind.

The expressions of the other characteristics, if present, were not clear enough to catch my attention, so if that statement expresses clearly Hesse’s goal in writing, it seems that Hesse failed to achieve it on several counts. What was the point of that?


Excluding this, I only read Sidharta from Hesse, so I can’t really judge him by five stories including the three little ones at the end but i suppose he was desperately looking for some kind of ethernal peace, because in every story of him, there is at least one character, who already reached that kind of peace in his life, with actually going out of real life, and living his own life inside his brain, like Siddharta, the Jogi at the last story, the old priest in the second one or the old music master.

I simply hated The Glass Bead Game, all fifteen million pages of it. One of my indictments of this book comes ironically, from the author’s own words: In his time, Hesse was a popular and influential author in the German-speaking world; worldwide fame only c Hermann Hesse was a German-Swiss poet, novelist, and painter. Or you could pretend to see the emperor’s new clothes too maybe. He need only sketch some part of it, fill in a detail here and a detail there that his characters can make part of their workaday conversations.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. An intriguing question less.

El Juego de Abalorios

Little to no food for thought. Set in lis future the 25th CenturyHesse’s book describes a world that has miraculously managed to stop fighting, watching cruddy TV, and listening to gossip as vicariously as it does now I’m told I’m not allowed to call this book “pretentious hogwash”, so I won’t.

Our one glimpse of the practical nature of the game has abalodios the fanfare of a whoopee cushion. The author must surely have realised, given the premise of the glass bead game, that Joseph needed to play the game to make the point?

Of course, a writer needs to be able to let the reader fill in empty spaces that the story only sketches with spare gestures. I’ve said this before, but here Abalorioz go again; just because this was published many decades ago, and just because it is assigned reading in some college class somewhere does NOT mean everyone has already read it. I love the idea that the GBG is a synthesis of the knowledge and culture of mankind throughout history.


I mean there were meditations about problems not related to the stroy for 5 or 6 pages and even the dialogues were short one page long meditations by two hese, who tell their own opinion with pretending listening to each other.

But the gestures need to be the beginning of something worthy. His best known works include SteppenwolfSiddharthaand The Glass Bead Game also known as Magister Ludi which explore an individual’s search for spirituality outside society.

One of the worst books I have ever read. Hessw see that a lot of others read the book when they were young, so perhaps it’s an age related thing. Consequently, I hated it.

Yes Hesse writes ‘well’ – obviously – but perhaps by the end of his career no one had the guts to curb the self-indulgence.

It is informative, 3. It just bothered me a bit Only one last problem I would mention about the book. I understand all those lucid, poetic aba,orios but I can’t stand the fact that they are being repeated, expanded too much.

Abalorioe does something transpire that it’s not mentioned three or four times in consecutive paragraphs.

El juego de los abalorios / The Glass Bead Game : Hermann Hesse :

It’s like Eco uses the cabbalistic references in Foucaults Pendulum, or Huxley uses the Shakespeare quotations in brave new world. Into this story steps Joseph Knecht, a man who becomes a “Magister Ludi” a sort of archbishop for the game players.

Like filming vertically with your cell phone.
