The Glass Bead Game From Post Tonal To Post Modern from the Author: . By drawing on the writings of Northrop Frye, Arnold Schoenberg, Michel Tournier, and Thomas Mann, this thesis explores the implications of using Hermann Hesse's fictional Glass Bead Game to model the role of recursion in literary criticism and, by extension, in the creative process itself. While Hesse associates the quintessential modernism of his Game with the fugue of the High Baroque, his 1943 novel Das Glasperlenspiel ironically gestures toward post-tonal music, just as it anticipates the development of what has come to be known as post-modernism. Tournier's 1970 novel Le Roi des aulnes, when read as a Glass Bead Game, exemplifies the modal counterpoint that Frye associates with the Ironic Mode of twentieth-century literature, thus completing Hesse's journey from Romantic assonance to ironic dissonance. However, Hesse and Tournier's novels also illustrate that Frye's conception of centripetal counterpoint, like the Glass Bead Game itself, is closer to Schoenberg's music than it is to Bach's, as is his conception of twentieth-century literature and criticism.

Strange News From Another Star from the Author: Hermann Hesse. In 1919, the same year Demian was published, seven of these stories appeared as a book entitled Märchen--literally, Fairy Tales. For this first edition in English, we have followed the arrangement Hesse made for the final collected edition of his works, where he added an eighth story, "Flute Dream." The new note so clear in Demian was first sounded, Hesse believed, in some of these tales written during the years 1913 to 1918, the period that brought him into conflict with supporters of the war, with his country and its government, with conventional intellectual life, with every form of orthodoxy both in the world and in himself. Unlike his earlier work, from Peter Camenzind through Knulp, the stories in Strange News from Another Star do not allow for an essentially realistic interpretation. They are concerned with dream worlds, the subconscious, magical thinking, and the numinous experience of the soul. Their subject is the distilling of wisdom. The eight stories are "Augustus," "The Poet," "Flute Dream," "Strange News from Another Star," "The Hard Passage," "A Dream Sequence," "Faldum," and--perhaps the masterpiece of this collection--"Iris."
