“A poetic novel unique in its fascination.” ―Thomas Mann
“Hesse was a great writer in precisely the modern sense: complex, subtle, allusive; alive to the importance of play, to the desperate yet frolicsome game of writing....Narcissus and Goldmund 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, between the wayfaring and the sedentary in us.” ―The New York Times Book Review
“One of the most profound and magical novels published in our age.” ―Kirkus Reviews

This is an excellent book with many psychological undertones and nuances. The writing is excellent and the book is intellectually challenging. One of Hesse's best, in my opinionPublished 1 month ago by Richard
