THE PLOT
-

Steppenwolf opens with a preface by a young businessman, who introduces a sheaf of notes
left behind by a lodger in his attic rooms several years before. This young man, the
landlady's nephew, describes the eccentric lodger, Harry Haller, who called himself a
Steppenwolf, meaning in German a wolf of the steppes, or plains. The narrator finds this

but left a haunting memory. The preface recounts Harry's arrival and the narrator's

tavern. He has decided to publish Harry Haller's "records" although he can't say whether
the experiences it relates were real or fictitious.

Haller's "records," subtitled "For Madmen Only," begin with a walk in the dusk after a

Many of his characters (often sharing his initials, i.e. Harry Haller of Steppenwolf) struggle within a world that seeks to extinguish individual creativi

    grapes of wrath movie review Grapes of Wrath Movie Review Would John Steinbeck be proud of the Steppenwolf Theatre Company’s productions of the Grapes of Wrath? No. This production of the Grapes of Wrath does the book no justice and lacks a very important theme presented throughout the novel. One theme, which it lacks is--”I to we.” This play was very limiting in that it only presented one family’s plight and not a panoramic picture. A key example of this would be the absence of the Wilsons. Thi

  • Blues jazz and rock
    blues jazz and rock These are my rough unedited class notes representing general ideas and concepts for class lectures. Please ignore the many sentence fragments. The African-American culture of the southern plantation influenced the birth of the blues through the adaptation of their African musical heritage. Based upon a call and response structure, one slave worker would call or play a lead and the fellow workers would respond with the same phrase or an embellishment of that phrase. The music
