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 meerts a woman who is his opposite, the carefree and elusive Hermine. The tale of the Steppenwolf culminates in the surreal Magic Theaterfor mad men only.

With its blend of Eastern mysticism and Western culture, it is one of literatures most poetic evocations of the souls journey to liberation. Originally published in English in 1929, the novels wisdom continues to speak to our souls and marks it as a classic of modern literature.
