The Glass Bead Game

The Glass Bead Game is the last full-length novel of the German author Hermann Hesse. It was begun in 1931 and published in Switzerland in 1943 after being rejected for publication in Germany due to Hesses anti-Fascist views. A few years later, in 1946, Hesse won the Nobel Prize in Literature. In honoring him in its Award Ceremony Speech, the Swedish Academy said that the novel "occupies a special position" in Hesses work. "Glass Bead Game" is a literal translation of the German title, but the book has also been published under the title Magister Ludi, Latin for "Master of the Game", which ...

Chicken (game)

The game of chicken, also known as the hawk–dove game or snowdrift game, is a model of conflict for two players in game theory. The principle of the game is that while the outcome is ideal for one player to yield, but the individuals try to avoid it out of pride for not wanting to look like a chicken. So each player taunts the other to increase the risk of shame in yielding. However, when one player yields, the conflict is avoided, and the game is for the most part over. The name "chicken" has its origins in a game in which two drivers drive towards each other on a collision course: one mu ...

Jeux d'eau (Ravel)

Jeux d’eau is a piece for solo piano by Maurice Ravel. The title is often translated as "Fountains", "Playing water" or literally "Water Games". At the time of writing Jeux deau, Ravel was a student of Gabriel Faure, to whom the piece is dedicated. Pianist Ricardo Viñes was the first to publicly perform the work in 1902, although it had been privately performed for Les Apaches previously. The piece was inspired by Franz Liszts piece Les jeux deau à la Villa dEste from the 3eme annee of his Annees de pelerinage, and Ravel explained its origins in this way: Jeux deau, appearing in 1901, is a ...
