Narcissus And Goldmund from the Author: Hermann Hesse. Narcissus and Goldmund is the story of a passionate yet uneasy friendship between two men of opposite character. Narcissus, an ascetic instructor at a cloister school, has devoted himself solely to scholarly and spiritual pursuits. One of his students is the sensual, restless Goldmund, who is immediately drawn to his teacher's fierce intellect and sense of discipline. When Narcissus persuades the young student that he is not meant for a life of self-denial, Goldmund sets off in pursuit of aesthetic and physical pleasures, a path that leads him to a final, unexpected reunion with Narcissus.

I Am Goldmund My Spiritual Odyssey With Narcissus from the Author: Charles Frode. This remarkable memoir recounts the author's spiritual odyssey with a remarkable person, a modern man, a Trappist monk. The story of their enduring friendship is even more amazing because in 1930 Nobel Prize winning author, Hermann Hesse, wrote his famous novel about just such a fascinating friendship between two medieval men-Narcissus and Goldmund. It is a wonderful mystery that Hesse understood the depth and width of Narcissus and Goldmund's friendship half a century before the author of this memoir embarked on the selfsame voyage of friendship and love when, at the age of twenty, he entered a Trappist monastery in California where he met his own Narcissus and discovered an identical passion and understanding created from archetypical forces brought together in one time and place by the unseen, powerful forces of the cosmos.

Narziss And Goldmund from the Author: Geoffrey Dunlop. Narcissus is a teacher at Mariabronn, a monastery in medieval Germany, and Goldmund his favourite pupil. While Narcissus remains detached from the world in prayer and meditation, Goldmund runs away from the monastery in pursuit of love. Thereafter he lives a picaresque wanderer s life, his amatory adventures resulting in pain as well as ecstasy. His eventual reunion with Narcissus brings into focus the diversity between artist and thinker, Dionysian and Apollonian. This new edition features a foreword from the musician and artist Graham Coxon: 'The clean simplicity of Hesse s writing offers a vast space in which to push your weightless mind, and, although you can see the universe between the lines, he never forces you to venture too deeply but rather leaves it entirely up to you as to how far in you might like to travel. This is not just a story. This book is a gentle arm around the shoulder.'
