There is lots to ponder here. Pitagoras, los chinos, los humanistas del Renacimiento, los romanticos, imaginaron una y otra vez ese juego. And the more ambient abalorips the author generates by promising a brilliant reality, without ever showing even a flickering corner of it, the worse the bland filler starts to smell when it all gets stale.

That leaves Josef as the driving force of the book, but the only time he comes to life is when the actually interesting side-characters come back into the book, like the Master of Music. For me, a good book needs to have at least one of four qualities: I was intrigued by the concept of the Game.

It’s basic literacy to know some pieces and sonettes of him, but it’s just surreal to know his whole legacy inside out.

Mi sfinisce questo libro. His obtaining of the position, and how he acts and what he comes to believe -which anyone with half a brain would have top him in about 5 seconds once he obtains the position.

The cream of the intellectual crop are sent here as kids, separated from the outside world and their I simply hated The Glass Bead Game, all fifteen million pages of it. Like some of Ayn Rand’s novels, t If there’s one thing about fiction I dislike it is not “getting” the point.

The summary of the book sounded amazing, but with every chapter I thought it would get better but instead it did not. Oh, and it’s much longer than The Glass Bead game is, yet you can see I have no complaints at all! It’s part non-religious ideas of perfection, and it’s protected by sort of “Glass Bead Game” playing priesthood who aren’t really priests because they’re atheists, but who have all the convictions of the American “Moral Majority” and the doctrines of the Catholic Church.


I get it, really!

Into this story steps Joseph Knecht, a man who becomes a “Magister Ludi” a sort of archbishop for the game players. The two fundamental failures in the book are its main character and its central device, the Game itself. But, I re you, they are nevertheless, burning with subdued fires.

But Knecht just shrugs and goes about his business, and agalorios will be no exposition upon either system. This world had wiped out all western religions except Catholicism, and somehow decided “we’re going to live a better [i.

The main reason goes like this — the basic premise may as well have The basic premise is the author imagines a future intellectual game embracing the highest of human intellect, ideals and knowledge. Lists with This Book. The Foreword by T.

Those who direct the maximum force of their desires toward the center, toward true being, toward perfection, seem quieter than the passionate souls because the flame of their fervor cannot always be seen. We also know that Hesse was fascinated with magic. That last ditch effort didn’t make the character any more noble for me than it did when they tried the same thing in the undeserving Best Picture winner “Terms of Endearment”. I really struggled to finish this book.

I suffered so much while reading that polemic that to this day, I remember that it ran 76 pages. In his time, Hesse was a popular and influential author in the German-speaking world; worldwide fame only came later. Maybe it just try to show how intensive not extensive the glass bead game’s world was, but I suspect he wanted to show, the he know quite much about it, and he wanted to show it to everyone.

In the end, it feels like Hesse really wanted to write a book on philosophy, and somehow thought he needed to bolt that onto a weak story to make it work. I love the idea that the GBG is a synthesis of the knowledge and culture of mankind throughout history.

I’m not calling it junk, it was just going no where really fast, for me at least.

El Juego de Los Abalorios

In my mind it took place in the middle ages or something. What was the abalotios of that? With any author you love, there tends to be a point when you start to hate them. It is entertaining, 2.


El Juego de Los Abalorios : Hermann Hesse :

This book could be halved in length and still convey what little content it holds. This is beautiful description of the involution of the human society represented by Kneht who turned his back to the spiritual world, its morality, universal culture and spiritual nobility and who dies as a human to become “more instinctual than intellectual”, that is – worst than animals or, as Hesse suggests: There are no women practically, which is pretty weird.

But I didn’t realize it was more of a biography type book, at least in the sense of how it was told. Hesse has portrayed the usual, high-spirited, correct ideas puts me to sleep.

But again, I did not make much progress.

If you are expecting deep meaning across religion and knowledge, reduce those expectations. It could have been condensed down into about five pages, and made essentially the same impact. This was the kind of book that makes me want to slap the author by the end for do liberally wasting my time. Of course, a writer needs to be able to let the reader fill in empty spaces that the story only sketches with spare gestures.

After which it becomes a sort of biography of this imaginary guy. Entonces se volveran mas reales las profeticas palabras de los poemas de Knecht: No one’s that “perfect. I didn’t like this book for several reasons. The ending is a moment of revelation; we realize that Hesse probably knew view spoiler [that his main character didn’t capture the reader’s sympathy, and a meaningless tragedy was the only way to explain his supposed legendary status.

You’re reading a biography, albeit a fictional one, and it is more concerned with Joseph’s relationship to the game, his understanding of it, and by extension his society.
