Return to Book Page. El Juego de Abalorios by Hermann Hesse. Bastien Perrot, experto en musica, dio el nombre de Juego de abalorios a un ejercicio intelectual para el cual utilizaba perlas de vidrio en lugar de signos graficos.
Pitagoras, los chinos, los humanistas del Renacimiento, los romanticos, imaginaron una y otra vez ese juego. En el un grupo de jovenes se consagran a la musica, a la astronomia, a las matematicas, con absoluto desden por todo placer carnal.
En el centro de ellos, Joseph Knecht, representante de Ia orden laica de Castalia, ensena a los benedictinos el “juego de abalorios,” entablando relaciones con la orden religiosa dirigida por un historiador, que de ese modo lo introduce en el seno mismo de la ciencia historica. Sera la Historia la encargada de demostrar que Castalia no puede ser eterna; el dinamismo del mundo exterior chocara irremediablemente contra la perfeccion inmovil del casto pais.
Entonces se volveran mas reales las profeticas palabras de los poemas de Knecht: Published by Sudamericana first published To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. To ask other readers questions about El Juego de Abaloriosplease sign up.

You’re reading a biography, albeit a fictional one, and it is more concerned with Joseph’s relationship to the game, his understanding of it, and by extension his society.
I found it a most peaceful and delightful book, but then a society who reveres learning and scholarly study is my idea of heaven!
However, if after a hundred pages, the language and descriptions haven’t grabbed you, then there’s probably nothing that follows that will. So yes, definitely others saw the connection.

There was something both disquieting and uniquely calming about these strange little books that Hesse wrote detailing his love and fascination with Eastern thought and philosophy.
El juego de los abalorios / The Glass Bead Game
Yermann is in many ways Hesse’s subtle answer to the growing Fascism in his country. But, at its heart, it isn’t an anti-Fascist book. He is aiming for more. He is thinking bigger.
El Juego de Abalorios by Hermann Hesse (4 star ratings)
It is a book about harmony and the arts. The exploration of how music, mathematics, intellectualism and life can become transcendent and beautiful. The Abaloios Bead Game is a mysterious fill-in that allows it to be at once none and all of man’s endeavors.
It is a holy raga, a tactile masbaha, a literary syncretism, that captures the whole of man’s achievements and is practiced by an elite hermamn. Using the framework of the Game Hesse is able to look at the dynamic of all of man’s achievements as being both beautiful, worthwhile, but also frivolous and fleeting.
He looks at the tension between those who remove themselves from mankind’s experiences with those who live IN the world. There is a pull and a reciprocity between these two groups. He d looking for those things that balance those groups and ultimately those things that cause these groups to separate.
The book also explores the mostly Eastern ideas of meditation, surrender, loss and renewal. I found these ideas obviously beautiful and rewarding, but I’m still not sure if I really liked the structure of the book: Part huego pages Magister Ludi’s story; Part 3 Magister Ludi’s poems; Part 4 The Three Lives other incarnations of Magister Ludi. I’m just not sure if the structure worked for me. It did well enough, but I loved and hated it too.
Maybe that was Hesse’s intention. The first part was a parody of those ell of the saints’ that appear so often and so frequently in all religious traditions.

It was interesting, but just didn’t mix well with the final parts of the novel. I did like having Knecht’s re incarnations be outside of time. While Magister Ludi was set in the future, the other incarnations of Magister Ludi were more likely from the past. An interesting construct, but the weight of the last was too little for the heavy front. But these are frivolous issues. For the most part, I liked the book. History and the inevitable burning push of evil must have seemed dark and heavy, but ultimately this book written from to contains the germs of peace and tranquility.
I think that peace comes from the idea of a spiritual retreat a common theme and surrender. Hesse wasn’t saying to run from Evil, although he did himself leave Nazi Germany. But I think his book was communicating the ability to find peace through surrendering to one’s own situation and place in the universe. So, surrender to the game and surrender to the universe.

Josef Knecht is one of them, Knecht’s life the subject of the story. He’ll become Magister Ludithe primary master of the game, the one who everyone looks up to. Hesse provides an uptopia here, but it’s one that’s bound to fail. The dde, Castalia, is nothing but an ivory tower on feet of clay.
The glass bead game, to me, is so far evolved and sophisticated as it is, that even the scholars and teachers cannot provide anything of real substance. Everything changes, but nothing is new.
Glass bead players don’t create, they merely ruminate. They pick and choose the best bits to fit them into their game. Hesse foresees the downfall of occidental culture long before it happened and tells it through the eyes of his protagonist. Knecht finally breaks the cycle and does what no master of the game has done before. He learned the lesson and changed his job, but it’s aba,orios late. Knecht’s bequest is this: Reading the blurb of this book, my first by Hesse, I was immediately fascinated and felt compelled to read it.
Hesse’s biography of Joseph Knecht was pleasant to read, though not moving.

As Castalians, the elite of the elite in the country’s intellectual world, most of the characters have given up worldly pleasures and devote their life to the Order and Game – a hrmann of the Mind’.
I really wanted to love this book the concept of the Game was grandbut in the end I felt that something was missing – perhaps I wanted more of the actual Game, perhaps the Castalian world was uesse refined and complete, while being so distant from the real world, and somehow, I enjoyed reading it but maybe it was herman technical and dry.
