Narcissus and Goldmund


Recommended Posts

Published in 1930 this is set in Medieval times and is about two men, Narcissus and Goldmund.  Narcissus struggles with becoming a monk and Goldmund starts off as his pupil but leaves to become what's termed as a wayfarer - someone who is homeless and travels a lot.

 

Both men come to terms with their chosen way of life and meet again, seeing much change in each other. Narcissus does not regret his life but Goldmund regrets his. 

 

This is beautifully written and absolutely absorbing.
