This novel is Hermann Hesse's indictment of conventional education. It is the story of a brilliant young boy whose spirit is systematically broken by his parents and teachers, over anxious about his success; they forget to consider his health and happiness. Out of his attitude to such treatment Hesse developed his views on the value of Eastern education in developing the self.
