The events of Steppenwolf are told by two first-person narrators, Harry Haller and the nephew of Haller's landlady.
Steppenwolf is written in the past tense.
The protagonist of Steppenwolf, Harry Haller, views the part of his personality that is removed from the concerns of common people as the Steppenwolf, a lone, wild "wolf of the Steppes." A steppe is an expansive, generally flat and treeless tract of arid land found in Asia and southeast Europe. Steppes are subject to extreme temperatures and only support vegetation that can survive with little moisture.
