Plot summary[ edit ] The book is presented as a manuscript written by its protagonist , a middle-aged man named Harry Haller, who leaves it to a chance acquaintance, the nephew of his landlady. The acquaintance adds a short preface of his own and then has the manuscript published. As the story begins, the hero is beset by reflections on his being ill-suited for the world of everyday, regular people, specifically for frivolous bourgeois society.
In his aimless wanderings about the city he encounters a person carrying an advertisement for a magic theatre who gives him a small book, Treatise on the Steppenwolf. This treatise, cited in full in the novel's text as Harry reads it, addresses Harry by name and strikes him as describing himself uncannily. It is a discourse on a man who believes himself to be of two natures: one high, the spiritual nature of man; the other is low and animalistic, a "wolf of the steppes".
This man is entangled in an irresolvable struggle, never content with either nature because he cannot see beyond this self-made concept. The pamphlet gives an explanation of the multifaceted and indefinable nature of every man's soul, but Harry is either unable or unwilling to recognize this.
It also discusses his suicidal intentions, describing him as one of the "suicides": people who, deep down, knew they would take their own life one day. But to counter that, it hails his potential to be great, to be one of the "Immortals".
By chance, Harry encounters the man who gave him the book, just as the man has attended a funeral. He inquires about the magic theater, to which the man replies, "Not for everybody.
When returning from the funeral, Harry meets a former academic friend with whom he had often discussed Oriental mythology, and who invites Harry to his home. While there, Harry is disgusted by the nationalistic mentality of his friend, who inadvertently criticizes a column Harry wrote. In turn, Harry offends the man and his wife by criticizing the wife's bust of Goethe , which Harry feels is too thickly sentimental and insulting to Goethe's true brilliance.
This episode confirms to Harry that he is, and will always be, a stranger to his society. You can now embed Open Library books on your website!

Mozart explains to Harry that the world is unfair, that Adam must deal with the consequences of eating the apple for eternity, even though another man would have done the same under the same circumstances.
Mozart allows Harry to understand that the past is the past. Keyon Hejazi-far Final Project Harry made the mistake of not saying anything to his young love that day, but understanding that it was a mistake is the first step to happiness. Mozart then explains to Harry that music has, in fact, died since he has passed.
Harrys contempt for radio music is astronomical. Mozart explains that Harry needs to learn to laugh at the radio music of the world. He is trying to explain to Harry that there are things that are simply awful in this world, but that despising them wont do a bit of good.
Rather, he needs to find humor in it, and in himself.
Of course, Mozart is just a piece of Harrys subconscious, and Harrys conflict of wolf and man is truly just a conflict of id and ego. Part 2: Harry walks into a room where he finds Hermine laying with Pablo.
Harry notices the one love mark under her left breast where Pablo bit her.
Harry is not unhappy, nor is he angry. He shows no signs of emotion.
He stabs Hermine where the love mark is. Blood rushes, Pablo leaves. This scene disallows any predisposed feelings of love, lust, jealousy, or anger.
He sees, he stabs, blood rushes, Pablo leaves.
Harry kills Hermine for two reasons. The first being: Hermine is a part of Harrys personality that he sought out to revitalizethe youthful spirit, the adventureand Hermine told Harry when they met that he would fall in love with her and that he will kill her at his request. Once she becomes a piece of him, rather than a fragment of his ego, he has nothing left to do but kill her.
Secondly: Harry entering the Magic Theater is a physical expression of the fractured ego that people experience when entering deep meditation.
