 Back Cover:
This is Hesse's last and greatest work, a triumph of imagination which wonfor him the NobelPrize for Literature. Described as "sublime" by Thomas Mann, admired by André Gide and T.S. Eliot, this prophetic novel is a chronicle of the futureabout Castalia, an elitist group formedafter the chaos of the 20th-century's wars. It is the key to a full understanding of Hesse'sthought.Something like chess but far more intricate, the game of Magister Ludi known as the GlassBead Game is thought in its purest form, a synthesis through which philosophy, art, musicand scientific law are appreciated simultaneously. The scholar-players are isolated withinCastalia, an autonomous elite institution devoted wholly to the mind and the imagination. . ."Part romance, part philosophical tract, part Utopian fantasy. Its theme is one thatpreoccupied Hesse earlier: the conflict between, and the need to synthesize, thought andaction, intellect and the flesh. . . A fascinating novel, welltranslated at last."
