This novel is based on Hesse's own experiences of a narrow and uncaring education. Hans Giebenrath is a gifted child and the victim of provincial ambitions. Sent to theological school, the imaginative boy is gradually driven to nervous collapse in a situation from which there seems to be no escape.
