Narziß und Goldmund

Den hjem og mål beruset af friheden og eventyret Overalt hænger kvinderne ved ham og selv får han aldrig nok af kærligh I enjoyed Hermann Hesse s novel of two medieval German men The story centers on two friends Narcissus and Goldmund The two meet and become friends early in the cloister Narcissus matures and finds his path in the cloister takes his vows and devotes to a monastic life Goldmund earthly and taken hold of by the beauty of women leaves the cloister to undertake an endless search for worldly salvation Narcissus is the teacher the pious and the man of God Goldmund is the lover the artist and the creator of beautiful thingsThe author does a great job of showing living dichotomy between the two friendsI was very moved by the story of venturing out into the world discovering new people and places and only to discover yourself Only in doing so you always end up back where you started For me it was like when people say you always go back to the beginning in some fashion or another That was my interpretation of the story you always come full circle in lifeI truly enjoyed this story and would definitely recommend it Thanks

Ed Men døden eksisterer altid i hans nærhedEn ung mands forsøg på at realisere livet uden borgerlig binding Ole Hyltoft This is not a review This is an expression of gratitude Enlightened does not begin to describe the feeling one gets when eyes see mind is set in motion and images are processed into thoughts that seed the way we look at everything We SEE everything in a new light at least for as long as we remember what is important what makes a difference The beginning of our true life I suppose all we can ask of our mind is for a few moments of enlightenment at a time And to remember Too much would be overkill too little starvation Let us be comforted with whatever ration of enlightenment we are allowed Let us not forget that we are allowed these moments we are not entitled them Herr Hesse with your beautiful words you allowed me to imagine enlightenment to see to take nothing for granted

Guldmund bliver ikke nogen from asketisk munk i klosteret Mariabronn som vennen Narcis Han flygter ud i verden en vandrer u Narcissus and Goldmund as I look back on it now in my old age far from my youthful love for it is one of Hesse s near misses Close but no cigar as they used to say at the Fair This novel could have been perfect But no it misses the boat At least to someone older and wiserWhy To find 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 facilitator for the catholicism of Catholicism and as a friend of Church nobility and peacemaker He purportedly was a friend 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 fictional doppelg nger Goldmund were deeply conflicted And Luther like Goldmund was ready to suffer eternal torment if needs be for following 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 faith and warm married loveIf Erasmus nearly approximates to the coolly rational but envious NarcissusHesse is ALSO a Narcissus like Erasmus A wannabe free 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 free 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 final Duino ElegiesAnd that masterpiece shows like Luther and Goldmund before him he could be mystical in a way few other men wereFew men and that includes HesseHesse was partly a lie to the world for 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 his soul to self contradiction And the complications of Narcissus or ErasmusBut a he was a true barometer of his timesAnd that is the reason this near masterpiece is close but no cigar he TRIES too hard for perfection Perfection wasn t to Rilke like an endless Glass Bead Game but rather like being out on the open water of imagination and feeling the Pneuma of Inspiration catch your sailsIt must you see come from the heart but it can t with HessePerhaps Hesse s Heart was just too constricted and dark a place Because it was formed of his endless anxieties and boredom which NEVER gave him Answers of the Spirit but only Excuses for possible Escape and further intellectual exploration Like Erasmus while Luther s Faith was a constant Breeze from a sincere Heart How frustratingAnd the heart has its reasons of which the brain knows nothingThat at least is one old guy s two cents worthEven though as a kid I LOVED it lulled by its twin themes of rebellion and creativityBut I hadn t then seen the Source of those two Inspiring emotionsIn the very Life Force that moves the Universe But I do now
