Jakob von Gunten arrives at the Institute Benjamenta, a training school for domestic service, to enroll for its course--a single endlessly repeated lesson. He develops an unresolved and unarticulated attraction to the principal's beautiful wife, while attempting to penetrate the physical and mystical aspects of the Benjamenta's school.
