This novel1 Initially reminded me very much of my own mental imbalances2 Started to make me feel like I d been had and that it was in fact just pretentious overly self aware me me me wackoff shite3 Redeemed itself AND THE NARRATOR in the end with its exploration of drug induced Jungian dreamscapes and subconscious mental states4 Successfully summoned that strange emotion that I like to call happysad 5 Did not change my life forever but did act like aloe on a sunburn for my general mood and mindset at the time that I was reading it6 Has garnered 4 stars and would be one that I would recommend to a friend especially in place of anything by Richard Bach or Carlos Castaneda

There are always a few such people who demand the utmost of life and yet cannot come to terms with its stupidity and crudeness Hermann Hesse Steppenwolf There is this bourgeoisie period in every man s life A midpoint between birth and death where man is trapped alone Unable to exist in the hot or cold of the absolutes he tries to find his way between the extremes in the comfortable center Fearing life and death he just exists barely This is not a novel for the young Just like it is better to save King Lear for later in one s life it is better to save Steppenwolf for those crisis years of the midlifeHesse s novels seem to flirt between the edge of memoir scripture prose poem and Eastern philosophy tract This isn t a book you want to read in a hot bath with scotch in one hand and a razor blade in the other You will either spill your drink or spill your blood or lose every printed word the hot water erasing pages and pickling your fingers toes and time

Hermann Hesse s words are timeless Here they represent an entire disaffected generation a generation who is on the cusp of radical change but still partly exists in the old world They are out of space and out of time they are lost within themselves However such things can aptly be applied to a number of individuals across the ages And for me this is what made the novel so great Through these pages Hesse evokes a character I have seen many times before across literature but never before with such clarity Harry Haller is one such man His intellect is undoubtedly worthy of genius though such a thing is wasted because he has no proper channel for such intellect He has lost his faith in humanity and has completely withdrawn from the world so he makes his own world he has created his own ideal environment within his thoughts His loneliness is that extreme he has written an idealised account of his life that never happened He wants hope so he creates it himself in the form of a counterpart a soul mate Hermione She gives him back everything he has lost his confidence his hope and his sexual energy He has passion or life once And this is why the novel is so terribly sad None of this is actually happening it is the desperate ramblings of a mind trying to heal itself in a world where it can find no sense of belonging or purpose This imagined woman becomes a lifeline a beacon in the middle of the dark shores of modernisation Like Andre Bretton s Nadja the idealised female becomes a means of escape for the lost modern man As per the surrealist mode reality is warped in an attempt to find some higher truth Her presence is the only thing preventing Harry from killing himself and surrendering to the endless sleepFor Harry is a man split in two he is the Steppenwolf There is no reality except the one contained within us That is why so many people live such an unreal life They take the images outside of them for reality and never allow the world within to assert itself He believes himself to be half man and half wolf He has all the sensibilities of a normal man but overshadowing his character is the romantic longings of a wild creature In such a modern world his desires and natural drives are unfulfilled they are repressed and controlled resulting in severe depression and low mood He cannot be who he was meant to be because the space he exists in does not allow it The time the age does not allow it So he is trapped and he so desperately needs a root out That much so he makes one up for himself out of words The switch between reality and imagination is extremely hard to notice within the narrative It happens very early on and there are many different layers of storytelling The story we are hearing is actually a journal penned by Steppenwolf and read by the hotel manager Although the narrative does raise uestions many really it is not until the end of the novel that the ripples of doubt are confirmed as delusional confirmations Perception is everything here perception of the self and of the world Although such complex imagining may sound detrimental to mental health they take on the form of a coping strategy for such a lost individual Although Steppenwolf is a middle aged misanthrope I don t hesitate to say that this book will resonate within the bosom of many a reader Particularly the young and the dispossessed will relate to his tale I know I do in part It is easy to become lost in life and it is easy to feel alone in a world that you don t relate to But unlike Hesse s Siddhartha this novel does not attempt to evoke an inner sense of peace and tranuillity as an effort to solve such problems that life throws at us A resolution would have been unnecessary here because that is not what Hesse is trying to show us Instead with Steppenwolf we receive a vision of a man who has wasted his life in self pity and self induced isolation Is this a projection of the author s feelings I don t think we can actually say for sure but one thing remains absolutely certain Steppenwolf is a life lesson for those who do not want to receive the same fateFacebook Twitter Insta Academia
