KLINGSORS LETZTER SOMMER PDF

This quality has always provoked a certain empathy, admiration, and even self-recognition when I read his books. As someone concerned with those important questions of life, I can identify with his characters, and, because his characters are so autobiographical, I feel like I can consequently identify with Hesse himself. One of the more fascinating thought exercises related to Hesse is studying his works as attempts to reconcile these two aspects of life: the ethereal, divine and ecstatic with the corporeal, material and sensual. As brilliant as he was, he never figured out how to do it completely, which is what makes all of his novels ultimately unsatisfying.

This quality has always provoked a certain empathy, admiration, and even self-recognition when I read his books. As someone concerned with those important questions of life, I can identify with his characters, and, because his characters are so autobiographical, I feel like I can consequently identify with Hesse himself. One of the more fascinating thought exercises related to Hesse is studying his works as attempts to reconcile these two aspects of life: the ethereal, divine and ecstatic with the corporeal, material and sensual.

As brilliant as he was, he never figured out how to do it completely, which is what makes all of his novels ultimately unsatisfying. The interesting part, however, is that each successive novel comes closer to the answer, so that Demian feels by far the least developed, and while Hesse realizes "Nirvana" in Siddhartha, it never feels authentically earned.

As obsessed as Hesse was with this issue, he was never able to solve it, and it leaves us with the suspicion that it is an insoluble problem, perhaps THE insoluble issue of humanity. His books are so enjoyable, though, precisely because nobody has ever taken up the question with such earnest seriousness. All of his books leave us unsatisfied, but upon further thought one concludes that they are unsatisfactory only because they so unerringly reflect the great human predicament: the paradox of the divine animal.

The main stylistic problem is that the vast majority of all of these stories takes place in the head of the narrator, so page after page we are just reading their inner monologue. It is a well-written and poetic monologue, but it feels very constrained and fairly boring.

This stylistic problem is most glaring in the second story, "Klein and Wagner," a tale of a respectable bourgeois banker who suddenly decides to embezzle thousands of dollars, abandon his family and flee to Italy under a pseudonym. An example:. I felt. How was that possible? But it was possible, it was happening. It was absurd, it was crazy, it was ridiculous and desperate -- but it was so.

For the uninitiated, Steppenwolf, Siddhartha, or Demian are better bets, and if you like any of those, then Narcissus. The short story is all about sensation, experience, feelings. The colours of his paintings are described in depth, the shapes of the landscape, his thoughts. Klingsor once talks about the mind as equally important as sensations. Blake Parker Herman Hesse is one of my favorite authors. Much more of his touch to move a story seemed to have been lost in translation.

It still painted the setting perfectly. The story simply felt as if it was being just slowly dragged along. Review will shown on site after approval.

Klingsors letzter Sommer

Die anderen sehen in dem Text mehr oder weniger gehobenen Kitsch. Er distanziert sich nicht, im Gegenteil: Er verlangt Empathie. Genau die mag sich heute jedoch kaum noch einstellen. Das Alte ist tot, das Neue noch nicht geboren.

Klingsors Letzter Sommer (2000)

Als solcher hat sich auch Hermann Hesse selbst begriffen, man denke an sein Werk Kindheit eines Zauberers. Ganz besondere Bedeutung kommt dabei der Farbe Rot in all ihren Nuancen zu. Der armenische Sterndeuter bringt Todesbotschaft. Klingsor und Louis tragen bisweilen die Namen chinesischer Dichter, besonders im Zusammenhang mit dem Kareno-Tag taucht bisweilen der arabische Orient auf, am Rande wiederholt Indien und Japan. Auch schwankte er zwischen romantischer Schwermut und expressionistischem Aufbegehren.
