Narcissus and Goldmund by Hermann Hesse( Book )

9 editions published between 1932 and 1988 in 4 languages and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1930, Narcissus and Goldmuna is the story of two diametrically opposite men: one, an ascetic monk firm in his religious commitment, and the other, a romantic youth hungry for worldly experience. Hesse was a great writer in precisely the modern sense: complex, subtle, allusive: alive to the importance of play. Narcissus and Goldmuna 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

Knulp: three tales from the life of Knulp by Hermann Hesse( Book )

4 editions published between 1946 and 1994 in German and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1915, Knulp was Hesse's most popular book in the years before Demian. This is the first edition in English. Knulp is an amiable vagabond who wanders from town to town, staying with friends who feed and shelter him. Consistently refusing to tie himself down to any trade, place, or person, he even deserts the companion who might be considered Hermann Hesse himself the summer they go tramping together. Knulp's exile is blissful, gentle, self-absorbed. But hidden beneath the light surface of these "Tales from the Life of Knulp" is the conscience of an artist who suspects that his liberation is worthless, even immoral. As he lies dying in a snowstorm, Knulp has an interview with God in which he reproaches himself for his wasted life. But it is revealed to Knulp that the whole purpose of his life has been to bring "a little homseickness for freedom" into the lives of ordinary men

Steppenwolf by Fred Haines( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Europe, after the Great War. Harry Haller, solitary intellectual, is beset by reflections on his being ill suited for the world of everyday regular people, specifically for frivolous bourgeois society. All his life Harry has feared his dual nature--being both human and beast--so he has decided to die on his 50th birthday, which is soon. The mysterious Hermine, who takes him dancing, introduces him to jazz, to the beautiful and whimsical Maria, and guides him into the hallucinations of the Magic Theater, which seem to take him into Hell. Hermine rescues Harry from his solipsism, but can humor and sin lead to salvation, thus saving modern man? The producers were attempting to make "the first Jungian film," and the requisite special effects, cutting-edge at the time, required seven years of complicated pre-production
