El Juego de Los Abalorios (Spanish, Paperback)

If the last sentence made any sense to you, chances are you have already read the book. Nothing is harder, yet nothing is more necessary, than to speak of certain things hrsse existence is neither demonstrable nor probable.

At one point, as the Music Master nears death in his home at Monteport, Knecht obliquely refers to the Master’s “sainthood”. Hesse’s universal language manages to bring even the seemingly formless domain of music into dialogue with the most formal of disciplines, like mathematics, and to reveal their relations as parts of a larger systematic whole. No one who reads this book and truly understands it can walk away unchanged.

The novel plays with the relationships between the master and the apprentice, the teacher and the taught, the seduction or corruption of the young by the old as well as the reconciliation or alignment of apparently opposite elements.

I found the early parts of the book painful to read, not merely because of the dullness of our narrator or the confusion I felt in trying to untangle Hesse’s philosophies, but because it is, at it’s core, the story of a fairly smart guy who is given everything on a silver platter by a series of wise men who recognize how special he is. The goal of the Game is to lead us to the great Terminus of all seeking, a universal system “capable of reproducing in the Game the entire intellectual content of the universe.

I spent most of the book trying in vain to discern what was meant to be serious philosophy and what was hedmann sly rejection of Hesse’s earlier beliefs.

In honoring him in its Award Ceremony Speech, the Swedish Academy said that the novel “occupies a special position” in Hesse’s work. It’s one of those few abaporios that made me love it deeply yet at the same time despise it entirely. The three lives, together with that as Magister Ludi, oscillate between extroversion rainmaker, Indian life — both get married and introversion father confessor, Magister Ludi while developing the four basic psychic functions of analytical psychology: The exploration of how music, mathematics, intellectualism and life can become transcendent and beautiful.

Rereading I found it uncompelling, but also I had the strong suspicion that I had absorbed a fair amount of the book into myself as thirsty soil sucks in water the first time round, and that I had creatively misremembered bits of it, specifically the second of the short stories which in grossly modified form I had told as a rambling anecdote on several occasions view spoiler [ as you can imagine I am not in great demand as an after dinner speaker hide spoiler ].

His life is a dull blank, undeserving of a biography at all, especially when at least three other characters go by who might actually have made good reading. All the insights, noble thoughts, and works of art that the human race has produced in its creative eras, all that subsequent periods of scholarly study have reduced to concepts and converted into intellectual property — on all this immense body of intellectual values the Glass Bead Game player plays like the organist on an organ.

It is a book about harmony and the arts. The Glass Bead Game itself, as far as I can tell, seems to be something like abstract mathematics. As a student, another meaningful friendship develops with Plinio Designori, a student from a politically influential family, who is studying in Castalia as a guest.

Whoops I’m lost in reminiscences again. The final novel of Hermann Hesse, for which he won the Nobel Prize for Literature in’The Glass Bead Game’ is a fascinating tale of the complexity of modern life as well as a classic of modern literature.

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your guidance. However, with the stamp of elite buried in their brow they are held and hold themselves in a higher status.
