The Glass Bead Game

by Hermann Hesse

In the remote kingdom of Castalia, the scholars of the twenty-third century play the Glass Bead Game. The elaborately coded game is a fusion of all human knowledge-of maths, music, philosophy, science and art. Intrigued as school boy, Joseph Knecht becomes consumed with mastering the game as an adult. As Knecht fulfils his life-long quest he must contend with unexpected dilemmas and the longing for life beyond the ivory tower.
