Criticism about Herman Hesse

Gender and Modernity in the Work of Hesse and Kazantzakis
“Evi Petropoulou discusses in her article, “Gender and Modernity in the Work of Hesse and Kazantzakis,” selected basic tendencies of the modern European novel, in this case pertaining to gender identity and she exemplifies her postulates with an analysis of texts by Hermann Hesse and Nikos Kazantzakis. She examines the mainly male dominated literary discourse in the work of these authors in light of their theoretical indebtedness to the thought of Nietzsche and Hegel. The study offers new insight into literary representations of gender relations in modernity and how Hesse and Kazantzakis define identity, the self, and otherness. “
