Reseña del editor
In the remote Kingdom of Castalia, the scholars of the Twenty Third century play the Glass Bead Game. The elaborately coded game is a fusion of all human knowledge - of maths, music, philosophy, science, and art. Intrigued as a school boy, Joseph Knecht becomes consumed with mastering the game as an adult. As Knecht fulfils his life-long quest he must contend with unexpected dilemmas and the longing for a life beyond the ivory tower.Ver Descripción del producto

Whew. I am glad that I am not the only reader who finds this a tough slog.
One of the most famous quotations about studying history comes from "The Glass Bead Game," and loving that quotation, I felt compelled to read the book. Hesse's use of of language is beautiful, even in translation.
This is a book full of intriguing ideas and useful mental nuggets, but it is not my Hesse book of choice.
As I read the "Glass Bead Game," I truly thought it was set in Edwardian times, in some deadly cold, extraordinarily sterile society. How astounding to discover it is set in the future!
The book seems to me to be a giant spoof on all past, present and future academics who take themselves and their studies far too seriously; yet I haven't seen any reviews by other academics who agree.
Perhaps Hesse, himself, was the master of the "Glass Bead Game."
I think I got more out of the last third of the book than the whole plodding main narrative, but I am glad I read it.
It was a bit like looking at a challenging and slightly unpleasant painting in an art museum. While one can't help but marvel at the technical acheivement of the thing, still it wouldn't hang in a livingroom.
