- In Hermann Hesse’s novels, as in his life, self-discovery walked a tightrope between deep insights and profound solipsism
A bit of a disillusioning and painful read for me as Steppenwolf was an important book for me. I also read Siddhartha in the first week of my psychotic episode a few years ago, not knowing what it was about.
I also enjoyed Narziss und Goldmund...
Anyway. A well-written article, I hope you enjoy it as I did.
