BlurbStepni volk je roman nemško-švicarskega avtorja Hermanna Hesseja. V Nemčiji je bila prvič izdana leta 1927. Roman je mešanica avtobiografije in domišljijskih elementov, poimenovan pa je po osamljenem stepnem volku. Zgodba temelji predvsem na krizi Hessejevega duhovnega sveta v 1920. letih. Protagonist je vpet med človečnostjo in agresijo ter brezdomnost stepnega volka. Roman je doživel mednarodni uspeh, čeprav je Hesse trdil, da ga ljudje razumejo narobe.

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.
