Narziss and Goldmund

By Hermann Hesse

$8.00

Narcissus is a teacher at Mariabronn, a monastery in medieval Germany, and Goldmund his favourite pupil.

While Narcissus remains detached from the world in prayer and meditation, Goldmund runs away from the monstary in pursuit of love. Thereafter he lives a picaresque wanderer’s life, his amatory adventures resulting in pain as well as ecstasy. His eventual reunion with Narcissus brings into focus the diversity between artist and thinker, Dionysian and Apollonian.
