Harry Haller is a sad and lonely figure, a reclusive intellectual for whom life holds no joy. He struggles to reconcile the wild primeval wolf and the rational man within himself without surrendering to the bourgeois values he despises. His life changes dramatically when he meets a woman who is his opposite, the carefree and elusive Hermine. The tale of the Steppenwolf culminates in the surreal Magic Theater—for mad men only. Steppenwolf is Hesse's best-known and most autobiographical work. With its blend of Eastern mysticism and Western culture, it is one of literature's most poetic evocations of the soul's journey to liberation. Originally published in English in 1929, the novel's wisdom continues to speak to our souls and marks it as a classic of modern literature.

Steppenwolf

Thomas Wayne presents a contemporary take on Hesse's classic story, so apt today, of the lone individual lost in the ironic good fortune and security of bourgeois banality and cultural conformity.

Thomas Wayne presents a fresh new translation of this classic that is a particular favorite of young adults confronting life's deepest questions and equally liberating for readers facing a mid-life crisis. Basil Creighton's 1929 version (revised in 1963 by Joseph Mileck) is the best-known version in English; it skips words, smoothes out long, involved passages, unnecessarily "improves" the text – all things Thomas Wayne refuses to do. As with his already published translations of Nietzsche's Thus Spake Zarathustra, Ecce Homo, and The Antichrist, he emphasizes a strict adherence and reverence for the literal – a Hesse for the 21st century, meaningful and faithful to the original.

By pitting the mediocre against the artist and the self against the mob, while blending aspects of the artist's journey and a healthy dose of Eastern philosophies, Hesse has remained a hero to the young at heart.

This concise study analyzes the motif of the labyrinth in Kafka's "Prozess," Hesse's "Steppenwolf," and Mann's "Zauberberg" as a signifier of the cultural crisis of the early 20th century. Josef K., Harry Haller, and Hans Castorp seek the meaning of life in confusing, labyrinthine worlds. Dr. Kenosian links the thematic configurations relating to the figures' process of self-realization to the thinking of Nietzsche and Heidegger who, either explicitly or implicitly, rethink the significance of corporeality for philosophy."
