Den hjem og mål beruset af friheden og eventyret Overalt hænger kvinderne ved ham og selv får han aldrig nok af kærligh. Narcissus and Goldmund tells the narrative of two men although Goldmund gets a bigger chunk of the story each seeking a higher fulfillment in his own way The novel chronicles the life of an aimless wanderer breaking free and one strongly binded to faith living in the Mariabronn monastery The novel is both a journey and an awakening that takes the reader over the course of many decades Living in a hidden cloister in medieval Germany Narcissus is a most learned and pious young acolyte pursuing knowledge and the contemplation of logic philosophy and theology When the younger boy Goldmund arrives at the cloister he recognizes him as his counterpart his opposite Reckless wild and passionate Narcissus is fascinated with the boy and takes him under his wing Goldmund makes other friends but none becomes as dear to him as Narcissus A great bond is set in place But Goldmund comes to realize that his fate does not lie solely with the Church but with the wider lands It s his nature to seek pleasure and joy from God s creation All bought on after sneaking off to a village and receiving a kiss from a young Gypsy He feels remorse but wants as his virgin heart aches to pursue this love affair With this he opens up into his true self and wishes to leave the confinements of Mariabronn After Narcissus gives his blessing and releases his friend out into the wide world the novel truly takes holdAnd so begins Goldmund s travels as vagrant Wandering around the country for years he discovers the ways of love and seduces countless women He would encounter death and violence the beauty of art and labor and the agonizing sadness of loss He makes friends but also enemies and later witnesses the horrors of the ghastly plague He does not live in the world of the mind but in the physical world of love music art and mortality After many years apart Goldmund and Narcissus reunite and discuss their differing lives Narcissus tries to explain to his friend the meaning of his uest the importance of the life of the flesh and he begs him to imagine a thought devoid of an accompanying image But Goldmund fails to understand because he is forever rooted in the rich earth in life and cannot cross the barrier into a pure thought an imagination without objects and images Each man seems to occupy one side of the other This is the reason for their strong friendship and understanding of one another both are somehow incomplete But together they become closer to enlightenment closer to hard clay than to wet sand Hesse s poetic and emotive medieval coming of age story reads as the uintessential novel on the pains and euphoria of adolescence forming a deep lifelong friendship and succumbing to the desires of the opposite sex of which after years stuck in a Monastery it s a case of making up for lost time Even though there are many layers to this book fairytale ualities existentialism philosophy love and passion and religion it reads surprising easily a world away from Steppenwolf Hesse s enriched prose and beautifully ladened descriptions of the landscapes had a slight resemblance to the writings Knut Hamsun and for a novel first published in 1930 and set in Medieval Germany it still felt remarkably fresh as it simply deals with the universal problems of growing up and finding one s true worth in the world Regardless of place and time Narcissus and Goldmund is ultimately a raging battle between the body and mind and the plague a pandora s box of contemplation and a novel that lingered strongly well after it s closing pages
