The Glass Bead Game: This is a firm clear voice that looks back to arrive at an understanding. Set in the 23rd century, ‘The Glass Bead Game’ is the story of Joseph Knecht, who has been raised in Castalia, the remote place his society has provided for the intellectual elite to grow and flourish.

Both Weber and Jung deeply interested in “the east” as offering ways out of the steel cage of the sonderweg of the development of “the west” so this novel features yoga and meditation as well as everything else, Reincarnation might be a theme too.

That many of them are dead or no longer in my daily life is neither regrettable nor sad since the Order continues to unite us. As his achievements are recognized, much to his surprise and glee, he is selected to the highest consecration of the intellectually elite, Castalia.

Mathematics and Music are the core disciplines of The Game. Of course, a writer needs to be able to let the reader fill in empty spaces that the story only sketches with spare gestures.

This exists on the great, sprawling family tree of books, reading I felt there was something Hesze thought that I could mention in a review with regards to Tolstoy, but I can’t remember what, the dialogue in the second of the two short stories reminded me, particularly in the childlike nature of much sin, of the Grand Inquisitor in The Brothers Karamazov – another novel that the author claims he didn’t write with a supposedly limited narrator who has apparently omniscient hdsse.

The main protagonist here is Joseph Knecht, a brilliant man who grew up and studied in Castalia and later bacame its Magister Ludi.

By the way, the author Hermann Hesse was born in and was brought up on a missionary household where it was assumed that he would study for the ministry. For Hesse, the daily newspaper was more about gossip than the factual information necessary for judgo. Joseph Knecht is a kind of holy man, but with none of the pomp or self-importance which, maybe, these days, that implies.

I did I like Herman Hesse. A long book full of portentious self-promotion but with nothing ls say. That would accord with my memory of Siddhartha, which I found to be full of a rather short-sighted and egotistical personal philosophy centering on Blavatskianisms like the ‘law of attraction’which still haunts the self-help section to this day.

These short stories at the end are definitely my favourite part of the novel. This has all been written before, and far more engagingly. Remember me on this computer. Students of the Order, most often, renounce marriage. The book deals with ideas of spiritualism, elitism, intellectualism, and how best to deal with the problems of society.

The games as drawn up in competition are archived. So many of the same character types and situations appear in these pages that I can’t help but feel I’m reading a Cliff’s Notes version of his oeuvre. The book is written by an unknown member of the Castalian Order who is retelling the story of Joseph Knecht. Set in the 23rd century, ‘The Glass Bead Game’ is the story of Joseph Knecht, who has been raised in Castalia, the remote place his society has provided for the inte The final novel of Hermann Hesse, for which he won the Nobel Prize for Literature in’The Glass Bead Game’ is a fascinating tale of the complexity of modern life as well as a classic of modern literature.


But this is Hesse’s masterpiece and is full of ideas. One example, perhaps, of a specific bead that represents something from the science of biology; what is written or drawn on the bead?

Where passion dominates, that does not signify the presence of greater desire and ambition, but rather the misdirection of these qualities toward and isolated and false goal, with a consequent tension and sultriness in abalorils atmosphere.

They produce no real products of worth outside of teachers for the outside society. Isolation from life is intended to safeguard Castalia’s status as a radiant Ark fl can secure the continued existence of these supreme values of human life, transporting them unharmed and untainted across the darkness of historic flux. The authors cast themselves as the characters they longed to become.
