La novela que influenció toda una generación. El Lobo estepario es una de las grandes novelas del premio Nobel de 1946 Hermann Hesse (1877-1962), por tratar en forma profunda el tema del antagonismo entre las dos naturalezas de un individuo, en este caso Harry Haller, una persona desilusionada de la vida, que alterna la que se considera naturaleza bondadosa del ser humano con la ferocidad que caracteriza al lobo estepario. El misticismo y fantasía en que se desarrolla la obra, además de los conceptos que se derivan de ella, tuvo influencia en la forma de pensar y de comportarse de los jóvenes de los años cincuentas, que se veían reflejados en la personalidad dual de Haller.

Here is the novel that influenced an entire generation. Steppenwolf is considered one of the greatest novels of author Hermann Hesse (1877-1962), who won the Nobel Prize in 1946.

The story analyzes, in a deep way, the antagonism between the dual natures within an individual: Harry Haller, a man disappointed with life, who alternates between what is considered the kindness of a human being with the ferocity that characterizes a savage wolf.

The mystical and fantasy elements of the book, in addition to its original ideas, influenced the thinking and behavior of 1950s youth, who saw themselves reflected in Haller's dual personality.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Denae | 2/5/2014

    " I came way from this book feeling as though I had just had a reminder of many ways I've always felt and things I've always known. Harry Haller is a character to whom I can relate, while also feeling deep pity for him. I will always love Siddhartha, but in some ways, because of the modernist tones, this book feels more real to me and my experiences. The cautionary tones that one must realize the wonderful parts of one's past life as well as those yet possible were well executed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 2/4/2014

    " Certainly a very interesting novel about the lonely Harry Haller, a character who seems unable to find happiness anywhere. He begins to look at the world as though he were a lonely nomad or a wolf. Then he meets the female protagonist. Good reading for the college years. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erika Gill | 2/1/2014

    " Hesse is brilliant, and I always find deep resonance in his works that go beyond the words on the page, but I really feel I didn't quite understand this novel. Which is probably what Hesse would have expected from me. There are many themes and striking passages any person who has ever felt unconventional, or out on the fringe of society, will identify with to some extent. I suppose my indecision stems either from my overestimating Hesse, or underestimating myself. I'll attempt to compromise and refrain from idolatry and egoism all at once. Until further re-readings. "

    " One of the most influential books in my life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Arturo | 1/18/2014

    " Probably the most remembered book from old times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Toni | 1/15/2014

    " Our first book for the Ya-Ya book club!!! It was a strenuous one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deborah Moreno | 1/12/2014

    " I liked this book because it made me think a lot, about the duality in all of us, the forces within us that push us to behave this or that way, etc. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 1/8/2014

    " I am sympathetic to some of Hesse's themes, but could not stomach the endlessly hectoring and didactic way in which they are presented. This is the novel not as a vehicle for story or character or emotion or insight, but rather as an instrument for making a point. And a blunt instrument at that. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim | 12/14/2013

    " There's many very poetic passages but I felt I may have missed a lot of the philosophical themes it was exploring. There's a lot going on there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel Pecheur | 12/5/2013

    " Very interesting philosophical novel. I found the insight very interesting in the character of Harry Haller and some of his ruminations will always stand out in my mind. "

    " Life's reflection "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gina | 10/5/2013

    " Incredible. Hesse presents through the eyes of his protagonist, Henry Haller, a philosophical exploration of the meaning of life and the concept of personality. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 4/29/2013

    " No words can describe how masterful and brilliant Hesse is as an author. Brilliant! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wilgenhof | 5/24/2011

    " Geen boek om nog even een paar bladzijdes voor het slapen gaan te lezen. Soms extreem lange zinnen met diepe overdenkingen. Daarnaast ook een heel mooi verhaal over een man van middelbare leeftijd die zich soms mens (denker) en soms wolf (instinct/gevoel) voelt. Ik ga hem nog een keer lezen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Roberto | 5/19/2011

    " Highly spiritual, psychological, psychedelic, "for crazy people only".
    Loved it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 1.1 | 5/9/2011

    " An eminently worthy book with a good lesson for the dour, introspective, seriously alienated person in all of us. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jason | 5/9/2011

    " Can't recommend this book enough. Just a beautiful and delightful read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bookamante | 4/28/2011

    " "Our only guide is our homesickness." I loved this book but first 100 pages a bit of a slog. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 4/27/2011

    " Madness.

    I'm not sorry I read it, but I'm not sure I could read it again. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Gooby | 4/14/2011

    " I kept attempting to read this because I found Demian moved me, but after 5 tries over 20 years, I finally threw it away. Seemed to be an elaborate justification of why bohemians appreciate the home comforts of the bourgeousie, but feel terribly guilty about it. Boo hoo. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rich | 4/11/2011

    " great read. I can't believe this novel escaped me until now "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bruna | 4/7/2011

    " Herman Hesse is a fucking genius. I seriously need to read this one again, it was such a long time ago... "
