Resilient coexistence model: Exploring the self-preservation strategy of hessean character goldmund

Author(s):

Antony Jose and D David Wilson

Abstract:

Crisis moments such as pandemic situation tests individualism and highlight the value of collaboration and the interconnectedness of local, national, regional, and global societies. Nothing exists in a vacuum. All living things are interrelated and comprise a network of connections, including flora and wildlife. Herman Hesse describes a pandemic situation in his novel Narcissus and Goldmund where the self-preservation strategies of the protagonist, Goldmund lead to sustainable living. This study utilising the descriptive-analytical method interrogates the self-preservation strategy of Goldmund that leads to sustainable living. This study comes with the Resilient Coexistence Model of self-preservation that calls for a post-pandemic global vision of interconnected self-preservation leading to sustainable living, a journey towards the future, leaving rigid egoistic boundaries, where the future is Mother Nature.
