Steppenwolf – Hermann Hesse

Amidst all that is certain and revelatory, Steppenwolf by Hermann Hesse, through its fluid and striking narrative, is precious. It is poetic as well as rare at its philosophy. Troubled as much as inspiriting at its authority. And because of its wild sentiments, this book needs to be mulled over, scrutinized, and deplored repeatedly.

The story brings into light the misery that comes with escapism. And the delusion we draw from it; which dwells in loneliness, solitude, and isolation. Steppenwolf forces you to renew and restore the meaning of life and existence. Meditate, in both calm and chaos, about the purpose of manifesting thoughts into actions; and about questioning just how much one can question anything at all. Strip the quintessential necessities down to their infinitesimal denominations. And bring forth the idea of encapsulating multiple personalities – though nobody may believe it – as a whole.
