Narcissus and Goldmund

November 18, 2009

One of my favourite Hermann Hesse’s books is ‘Narcissus and Goldmund‘ – the thinker versus the artist. Friends whose paths part … but years later circumstances bring together again. Both the artist and the thinker in search of themselves in different ways. A writing that relates to me in some profound way – the misleading names of the protagonists, the dualism all throughout the book… the search.
