Der Steppenwolf Summary ð 104 T themes the wrenching conflict between flesh and spirit and is accompanied by a searing appraisal of Western civilization. Many literary novels are page turners filled with a compelling straightforward storyline and lots of action think of Our Mutual Friend and Crime and Punishment think of Heart of Darkness and No Country for Old Men or novels like The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo or The Spy Who Came in from the Cold Hermann Hesse s novel Steppenwolf is a work of a completely different cast a reader might find the story gripping even riveting but for much different reasons for the action takes place not in a major city or obscure outpost but primarily in the mindOur first introduction to main character Harry Haller is through the eyes of the thirty something middle class nephew of Haller s landlady The nephew observes how Haller lives a lonely unsocial life and refers to himself as an old Steppenwolf The nephew s curiosity prompts him to enter Harry s room where he discovers stacks of books by authors such as Goethe Jean Paul and Dostoevsky a statue of the Buddha a photo of Gandhi empty brandy bottles and half smoked cigars In a word living uarters bespeaking a chaotic artistic lifestyleThe nephew explains how Harry suddenly vanishes from the apartment leaving a manuscript entitled HARRY HALLER S RECORDS that warns potential readers that what follows is FOR MADMEN ONLY It is this record that comprises the remainder of the novel Harry records how he has two natures in conflict one as a reflective refined cultivated gentleman and the other a wild wolf of the steppes As such he is a Steppenwolf a despiser and destroyer of the middle class who is at the same time supported and comforted by the middle class Harry s conflict causes him to become so depressed that he sets his fiftieth birthday as the date for taking his own lifeBut life has other plans for Harry the Steppenwolf We read how Harry encounters a dreamlike inscription over a door in the old section of town Then the fun begins Harry s identity and view of reality are challenged by a series of happenings most notably meeting the beautiful young Hermine who can be considered in a number of ways as Harry s double his doppelg nger as a reflection of Harry s inner spiritual self or as a Jungian archetypal female part of his psyche his anima Hesse wrote Steppenwolf fresh from his own Jungian psychoanalytic experience Indeed Hesse plays with the idea of doubles mirrors and archetypes throughout this novel Harry s world is further jazzed up with the entr e of jazz saxophonistshape shiftersensualist Pablo and the beautiful and voluptuous Maria Jazz dancing drugs and sex all contribute to the death of the formerly old and depressed Harry transforming him into a revitalized man poised for a full range of experiences at the much anticipated masked ballThe masked ball is the final section of the novel In one of the inner rooms Harry encounters the Magic Theater which enlarges any previous notions he might have held of both magic and theater Harry is informed that there is a definite admission price to this theater PRICE OF ADMISSION YOUR MIND Pablo explains to Harry how the theater has as many doors and boxes as one pleases ten or a hundred or a thousand and how behind each door exactly what you seek awaits youWild And as we enter and move through the Magic Theater things become progressively wilder Recall how Timothy Leary encouraged users of LSD to consult this part of Hesse s novel as a manual to negotiate their hallucinogen induced trips Hesse would probably have objected to Leary s statement He wrote in 1961 it seems to me that of all of my books Steppenwolf is the one that was often and violently misunderstood than any other and freuently it is actually the affirmative and enthusiastic readers rather than those who rejected the book who have reacted to it oddlyOn this point I agree with Hesse you need not take LSD to enter The Magic Theater what you really need is openness and imagination along with the willingness to courageously peer into the subconscious and unconscious areas of your own psyche If you have a few decades of adult experience as Hesse evidently hopes so much the better

Hermann Hesse Ñ 4 Summary

Der Steppenwolf Summary ð 104 STEPPENWOLF is the most autobiographical of Hermann Hesse's works An experimental mix of symbolism realism and fantasy it. I read this book on a twenty four hour train journey surrounded by the bourgeois It was a terrifying experience The book didn t change my life and was not meant to but it gave me hope and hope is always a good thing The influence of Indian spirituality on this book is apparent but Hesse chooses to dissect it using the prism of Western pessimism He talks about the multiplicity of the self and the infinite potential associated with it how we often choose to attach fanciful restrictions to the limitless and that every man can have his place among the Immortals The influence of unfulfilled desires in the making of the personality and its inherent disorders and the possibility of conuering those to mould a new self are also prominent themes which again run parallel to the Indian concept of rebirth The book has layers far too many Each time I indulge in a flight of introspection much like Harry Haller or so I would or wouldn t like to believe I stumble upon a different and eually vague interpretation of the book This book is great literature It is magnificently vague and by turns sincerely hopeless and insincerely hopeful but eventually redeems itself by offering hope for the hopeless
