Hermann Hesse

Hermann Hesse was a German-Swiss poet, novelist, and painter. In 1946, he received the Nobel Prize in Literature. His best known works include Steppenwolf, Siddhartha, and The Glass Bead Game (also known as Magister Ludi) which explore an individual's search for spirituality outside society.In his time, Hesse was a popular and influential author in the German-speaking world; worldwide fame only came later. Hesse's first great novel, "Peter Camenzind", was received enthusiastically by young Germans desiring a different and more "natural" way of life at the time of great economic and technological progress in the country. Throughout Germany, many schools are named after him. In 1964, the Calwer Hermann-Hesse-Preis was founded, which is awarded every two years, alternately to a German-language literary journal or to the translator of Hesse's work to a foreign language. There is also a Hermann Hesse prize associated with the city of Karlsruhe,Germany.

We can understand one another, but each of us can only interpret himself.

But no doubt I should immediately get the worst of it and be beaten in an argument with such a psychologist, for psychologists are, of course, people who always win. As far as I am concerned, they may be right. Then everything else that I have considered good and fine, and for which I have made sacrifices, has only been my egoistic desires.

He killed his senses, he killed his memory, he slipped out of his self into thou­sands of other forms, was an an­imal, was car­rion, was stone, was wood, was wa­ter, and awoke every time to find his old self again, sun or moon shone, was his self again, turned round in the cycle, felt thirst, over­came the thirst, felt new thirst.

    It's a story about the fear of growing up, the good/bad and the journey to find ourselves. It has a lot of symbolism and references to Jung's Archetypes so I recommend to read a little bit about Jung (and The Bible) for better understanding of this book.

    The translation is very easy to follow compared with anothers I checked, then if you aren't an English native speaker, you could read this edition without problems.

    About the Wings album. The first five chapters are the ones that are more relationed with the short films, specially Jungkook's one, but is not an easy book to be sincere.

    I enjoyed it, a lot.
