Family - greatest gift or curse?

Creative life - long suffering or fulfillment?

Raising the questions of humanity in the microcosm of a single family, Hesse creates a painful, yet beautiful picture of the balance between liberty and suffocation, between creativity and middle class life.

Without taking sides with any of his main characters, he shows their incompatibility and their power to hurt each other for being different from each other and for not living up to each other's dreams.

The plot is s

Hermann Hesse, biyografi yazarlarının her daim ele almak isteyecekleri; hayatını dönemlere ayırıp her anını didik didik edip, eserlerinde bunun karşılıklarını aramaya can atacakları bir yazar. Manastırda başlayan din ile akıl arasında kaldığı, sürekli okuyup yalnızlaştığı çocukluğu; kitaplarla iç içe geçen ve ileride önemli isimler haline gelecek çaylaklarla kurduğu problemli arkadaşlıkların hüküm sürdüğü gençliği, sonrasındaki korkunç yalnızlığı; iki adet dünya savaşı, biten evliliği, Hindistan ...more

Arka kapağını kesinlikle okumayın, kitabın tamamını anlatıyor nasıl böyle bir düşüncesizlik yapılmış anlamış değilim, neyse ki ben okumamıştım. Kitap, Hesse'nin hayatından izler taşıyor. Ayrıca kapak resmini de beğenmiştim bu da Hesse'nin kendi çizimiymiş.

Mükemmel bir roman Hermann Hesse'nin Rosshalde'si. Yazarı ilk, Narziss ve Goldmund romanı ile tanımış ve adeta büyülenmiştim. Bu roman da aynı şekilde beni çok etkiledi. Cümleleri, satır araları, o kadar dolu, o kadar yoğun ki! Her cümlesi, aslında on sayfa değerinde olan bir roman.

Yazar kitapta yazmamış, adeta yazmak istediği her şeyi tuvale aktarmış gibi. Anlattığı her şey, anında gözünüzün önüne geliyor. Önce zamanı durduruyor yazar, ve o enstantaneyi büyük bir zevkle ve keyifle anlatıyor!

Ah Rosshalde ah...

Beni Hermann Hesse ile tanıştıran kitap. Belki de okuduktan sonra "en sevdiğim kitap".

Ama öyle bir kitap, öyle bir hikaye ki , okuduktan sonra etkisinden kurtulmam imkansız artık demiştim. Yazarın kalemindeki o tasvir gücü ve anlattığı hikaye o kadar çok gerçekti ki acaba kendini mi anlattı bu hikayede demiştim.

O tasvirlenen muhteşem bahçeye, Rosshalde adlı o evin içine girdim ben de okurken ...

I had never heard of this minor Hesse work but saw at at the library and was seduced by the author's reputation. His greater works have a philosophical base that is missing in Rosshalde. Although the main charater, a successful artist, does agonize over his spiritual health it is primarily a reaction to a very unhappy marriage and the sharing of a beloved son with his alienated wife. Apparently the book reflects Hesse's life and he may have written it to deal with his own frustrations. I'm glad ...more

Tôi từng không thích Hermann Hesse từ hồi đọc thử "Câu chuyện dòng sông" & vài chuyện ngắn khác, nhưng Đâu mái nhà xưa đã khiến tôi rung động mãnh liệt. Việc đọc tác phẩm này khi trầm cảm đã giúp tôi khám phá ra ông đã tài tình đến nhường nào trong việc định hình tâm trí & tâm trạng độc giả vào trong tác phẩm của mình.

Hesse'ye karşı tarafsız olmam çok zor. İlk gençlik yıllarında bana çok şey öğretmiştir çok şey hissettirmiştir. O yıllardan sonra ilk defa tekrar okudum özlemişim epeyce. Bir de fark ettim ki çevirmen Kamuran Şipal ismi Hesse siz Hesse de Şipalsiz olmaz gibi geliyor.
Kitabın kapak resminin de yazarın kendisine ait olması ayrı bir güzellik.

A pesar de que en general me pareciese un libro "normalito", Hermann Hesse me consigue sorprender siempre con la última página de sus historias. En este caso en concreto, la última frase hace que te plantees muchas cosas y preguntarte tú mismo, si tú también estás en ese punto. Da incluso algo de miedo.
Impresionante es también la cantidad de temas que consigue tocar en unas pocas páginas...

Chưa từng nhà văn nào có những đoạn phân tích tâm lí nồng nhiệt và sâu sắc tựa như Herman Hesse.

This is one of my favourite novels I've read by Hesse, together with Steppenwolf. Its theme reminds me somewhat of some of Henry James's fiction: it deals with the plight of the artist who wants to pursue spiritual and artistic fulfillment, but who also wants to do his duty by his family. Veraguth is torn between these two loyalties, represented in the novel by his best friend, who encourages him to travel through Asia exploring the world and his art, and his son Pierre, on whom Veraguth dotes. ...more

با خواندن آن فوری متوجه می شوید ک از جنس همان رومان های قدیمی با فضای بریتانیایی و اشرافی است .
داستان آشنای مشکلات زن و مردی ک با وجود عدم احساس ب هم ب خاطر بچه ها با هم زندگی می کنند (ب خاطر پی یر کوچک) اما نوری پرشور ک دوست پدر خانواده است سعی دارد وی را ازین زندگی مرگبار نجات دهد و اتفاقاتی ک ب متعاقب آن می افتد.

It's not a long novel, not much happens and the characters are a family of four and some minor characters, yet, it's not a simple novel despite its structural simplicity.
Hesse provides a great and honest insight into the human psyche, hardship, missed opportunities and deteriorated relationships. It's a novel about realisation and loss, a novel about lies we tell ourselves and illusions of happiness we create.
It's pretty much a family study during their last summer of still being (or rather pret

I read this book as part of a challenge to read all 1001 books on the 1001 Books To Read Before You Die list. I'd never heard of the book before accepting the challenge to read it, nor had I read anything else by Hesse prior to picking up this book.

From reading other reviews it seems that there are some who feel this particular translation (1970 - Ralph Manheim - Farrar, Straus & Giroux Inc) is lacking somewhat and does not convey into English how Hesse comes across in his native language.

This was the first novel by Hermann Hesse I’ve read, and it doesn’t seem to be one of his most renowned, so it’ll be interesting to see how it compares to the more famous works. It certainly wasn’t what I expected – in fact, I’m not sure what I expected. From browsing through Siddhartha and Steppenwolf when I used to work at a bookstore, I’d got the impression that Hesse was quite a discursive writer, almost a self-help writer, albeit a literary, modernist self-help writer. Rosshalde, though, is ...more

Foi a primeira vez que vi um escritor descrever tão bem a essência da infância, dessa altura em que temos a percepção de que no nosso íntimo sentimos e sabemos tudo o que os outros não sabem, ainda que por vezes nos seja complicado explicá-lo.
No entanto, fez-me perceber até que ponto eu próprio estava enganado em relação à infância, ou pelo menos ao que a demarcava relativamente ao que resta.
Não é a ignorância ou a ingenuidade, porque para o bem ou para o mal, são escolhas.

[This is not a review, just a few thoughts that crossed my mind after I read this book]

Compulsions guide us, a few of them. A few emotional and a few that are physical. We then live with them, prosper there, realize the addiction, and yet continue to live the frustration of mere existence. Or we make a break. No break is really easy – what do we look for when making a break from something? Does something called a ‘clean break’ exist in this world?
