Narcissus and Goldmund

Hermann Hesse (Author)
Available

Description

'One of his masterpieces . . . without doubt a great novel' Guardian

One of Hermann Hesse's greatest novels, Narcissus and Goldmund is an extraordinary recreation of the Middle Ages, contrasting the careers of two friends, one of whom shuns life in a monastery and goes on the road, tangled in the extremes of life in a world dominated by sin, plague and war, the other staying in the monastery and struggling, with equal difficulty, to lead a life of spiritual denial.

An superb feat of imagination, Narcissus and Goldmund can only be compared to such films set in medieval Europe as Bergman's The Seventh Seal and Tarkovsky's Andrei Rublev . It is a gripping, profound reading experience - as startling, in its different way, as Hesse's Siddhartha and Steppenwolf .
