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.
