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.
