Format: Paperback
This is a must read for any School or College leader.

Hesse describes his experience as an entrant to Seminary, in particular he reflects on the death of one of his class mates who commits suicide in the woods as a consequence of not being able to cope with the narrow, institutional and fundamentalist pressures.

This is a catharsis for anyone who has studied in a closed religous entity, but should be a work of reflection for those creating or managing control structures in schools and other institutions.

Format: Paperback
As another reviewer warns at the end of their review of " THE PRODIGY ": If you have the book " THE PRODIGY", do not buy this one, as it is the same book under another title.
Not only is " BENEATH THE WHEEL " more evocative of the real subject of the book, although " THE PRODIGY " , is a relevant title as well, but also it is much nearer the German original of " UNTERM RAD ", therefore easier to connect the two.

Should have read that this is the Prodigy under a different title - will amazon refund me? Excellent book especially as an introduction to Hesse.

First time I have read Hesse....Will now try more....A very accessible book which is still very relevant today.....the message to me was, "Let your kids have a gap year"
