it is probably his novel the one to recommend Improbable Destinies: Fate, Chance, and the Future of Evolution for anyone wanting to check him out I have given away copies of itor this purpose to several persons over the yearsContrary to the description in Wikipedia I read the novel On a Cold Road: Tales of Adventure in Canadian Rock from the perspective of Goldmund being lost and thenound Seduced by the snares of t Narcissus and Goldmund as I look back on it now in my old age ar rom my youthful love or it is one of Hesse s near misses Close but no cigar as they used TO SAY AT THE FAIR THIS say at the Fair This could have been perfect But no it misses the boat At least to someone older and wiserWhy To ind that out let s go back to the medieval era in which this book is setThere once was an almost Narcissus back then His name was Desiderius Erasmus A Catholic and Monkish gentleman and a scholar of the world he acted as a Nini facilitatoror the catholicism of Catholicism and as a I Love My Dad (Disney Princess) friend of Church nobility and peacemaker He purportedly was ariend of poor ordinary souls It s true I think that he envied their spontaneous easeHe wanted you see to silence his own b te noire Martin Luther an almost Goldmund You see Luther was an semi innocent like Goldmund who was impulsive and passionate like his real life archetype And both Luther and his Flight, Vol. 7 fictional doppelg nger Goldmund were deeply conflicted And Luther like Goldmund was ready to suffer eternal torment if needs beor ollowing his own star Erasmus NeverAnd spontaneous And Erasmus was notFor if in conflicted souls spontaneity is dammed up in the heart the result is spiritual entropyThere though the near similarity ends and while Goldmund s outlet was art Luther s was the defence of simple aith and warm married loveIf Erasmus nearly approximates to the coolly rational but envious NarcissusHesse is ALSO a Narcissus like Erasmus A wannabe ree spiritA sophisticated pan European man of the world he resented and perhaps envied passionate mystical artists like Rainer Maria Rilke and his own creation Goldmund These are men who live by the ree spiritual self replenishment of pure inspirationRilke like Luther and Goldmund could do no wrong in the eyes of his admirers He could also do as he liked And did it though always within the bounds of decency Like the other two he was also conflictedAs we see in his great Camp Rex final Duino ElegiesAnd that masterpiece shows like Luther and Goldmund before him he could be mystical in a wayew other men wereFew men and that includes HesseHesse was partly a lie to the world or he like so many was precisely and tormentedly that to himself He wasn t an ingenuous mystical guy like Rilke And perhaps his outr habits like those of the protagonist of Demian bound hi.
