Hans Giebernath lives among the dull and respectable townsfolk
of a sleepy Black Forest village. When he is discovered to be an
exceptionally gifted student, the entire community presses him onto
a path of serious scholarship. Hans dutifully follows the regimen
of study and endless examinations, his success rewarded only with
more crushing assignments. When Hans befriends a rebellious young
poet, he begins to imagine other possibilities outside the narrowly
circumscribed world of the academy. Finally sent home after a
nervous breakdown, Hans is revived by nature and romance, and vows
never to return to the gray conformity of the academic
