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.

The Seasons Of The Soul from the Author: Hermann Hesse. Vowing at an early age “to be a poet or nothing at all,” Hermann Hesse rebelled against formal education, focusing on a rigorous program of independent study that included literature, philosophy, art, and history. One result of these efforts was a series of novels that became counterculture bibles that remain widely influential today. Another was a body of evocative spiritual poetry. Published for the first time in English, these vivid, probing short works reflect deeply on the challenges of life and provide a spiritual solace that transcends specific denominational hymns, prayers, and rituals. The Seasons of the Soul offers valuable guidance in poetic form for those longing for a more meaningful life, seeking a sense of homecoming in nature, in each stage of life, in a renewed relationship with the divine. Extensive quotations from his prose introduce each theme addressed in the book: love, imagination, nature, the divine, and the passage of time. A foreword by Andrew Harvey reintroduces us to a figure about whom some may have believed everything had already been said. Thoughtful commentary throughout from translator Ludwig Max Fischer helps readers understand the poems within the context of Hesse’s life. From the Trade Paperback edition.
