El llop estepari és el títol d'una de les més cèlebres novel·la de l'escriptor suís Hermann Hesse, la qual combina l'estil autobiogràfic amb alguns elements de fantasia, especialment cap al final de l'obra. El llibre és en gran part un reflex de la profunda crisi espiritual que va patir Hesse en la dècada de 1920, mentre retrata la divisió del protagonista entre la seva humanitat i la seva aparença de llop com l'agressió i la manca d'habitatge. La novel·la es va convertir en un èxit internacional, tot i que Hesse va dir posteriorment que el llibre, en gran mesura, va ser mal interpretat.

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.
