about this book

Translated by Ursule Molinaro. Set in the Middle Ages, a timeless parable of youth's initiation into the rites of maturity. Hesse's novel of two medieval men, one quietly content with his religion and monastic life, the other in fervent search of more worldly salvation. This conflict between flesh and spirit, between emotional and contemplative man, was a life study for Hesse.
