Only Eric Rohmer's "My Night at Maud's" raises the issues of faith vrs. reason and what people really 'want.'
Hess's story and Rohmer approach the topics differently but both are classics at doing so.
My favorite of the Hess stories.
A novel set in the Middle Ages, in which we meet two characters who live very different lives. A meditation on living a balanced life. Contains a vivid description of Germany and Europe at the time of the Black Death (the plague).
Like all Hesse books this one will pull you into another world, like a giant painting that comes to life. It is beautiful, flowery, romantic, and at times tragic. The opposing lives of Narcissus and Goldmund will find their ways into your veins, and you will wonder which is more like you.
