Stepski vuk je roman njemačkog književnika Hermanna Hessea, objavljen 1927. godine. Govori o Harryju Halleru, osamljenom i nezadovoljnom intelektualcu u potrazi za izlazom iz životne krize u koju ga je dovela podvojenost vlastite ličnosti između ljudske i vučje prirode. Uz pitanja identiteta i individualizma, roman se bavi i kritikom malograđanštine i društvenih tendencija iz poslijeratnog razdoblja. Roman je u početku naišao na nezainteresiranost i odbijanje. U SAD-u je, u pojedinim saveznim državama, bio zabranjen u školskim knjižnicama zbog opisivanja "seksualnih perverzija" i uporabe droga. Veliku popularnost stekao je tek 60-ih i 70-ih godina među pripadnicima hippie-pokreta, koji su u Hesseu pronašli duhovnog vođu.

A fairly lopsided feeling book, but I feel that's mainly because I don't have the cultural context for half of the book. While most of the book is about the turmoil oil of man and his conflict with finding identity and the purpose of finding it at all, the other half deals with references to Goethe and Mozart and other famous Germans, none of which I ever had to learn about or even knew much of. Maybe i'll think higher of this book once I understand the references, but as for the moment i'll have to stick to appreciating it based only on the parts that didn't feel like a completely different language.
