Product Description

Throughout his life, Herman Hesse was a devoted letter writer. He corresponded, not just with friends and family, but also with his readers. From his letters home from the seminary at age fourteen, to his last letters, written days before his death at eighty-five, this selection gives a sense of the author of some of the most widely read books of the century.

4-0 out of 5 stars More please
Yes, after reading passages from Hesses' letters in biographies & literary critisism for 20 years, it was very exciting to hear that Noonday was finally publishing a volume of them in English translation. The focus was to try to put them out in an edition that might pass for an autobiography. But many of the letters that dealt with his major criseses, or the inspiration for his major novels, so many important letters still go untranslated.
If they didnt translate the complete 4 volume edition back in the 1970s, when he was so popular with students & youth, I dont hold out too much hope that they will do it anytime soon. I guess my best betstll is to try & learn Gearman, go online & purchase the German edition. With my luck though, as soon as I have learned the language the set will suddenly appear in bookstores, neatly translated

5-0 out of 5 stars Better than a biography
This is an important book to have if you're a fan of Hesse.There are many personal letters collected here by a reknown Hesse scholar which shed light on Hermann Hesse the man, artist, and writer.These are also the sources for many biographers and it's good to have them available for those of us who like to form their own opinions and thoughts about Hesse's life and works from the man himself.Ziolkowski provides a nice, brief introduction, and reading these personal (often private) letters whether chronologically or at random, is like eavesdropping in on the life of a kindred soul and good friend.Together they create a well rounded, kaleidoscopic view of one of the Twentieth-Century's greatest and most respected writers.

3-0 out of 5 stars A good book for understanding Hesse
Soul of Age contains a good selection of Hesse's letters that provide a very usefull introduction to Hesse. The translations are very good, and the introduction is informative and intresting. Some letters between Jung andHesse are missing, but you can find them in Michael Serrano's book. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
In the spring of 1922, several months after completing Siddhartha, Hermann Hesse wrote a fairy tale that was also a love story, inspired by the woman who was to become his second wife. That story, Pictor’s Metamorphoses, is the centerpiece of this anthology of Hesse’s luminous short fiction. Based on The Arabian Nights and the work of the Brothers Grimm, the nineteen stories collected here represent a half century of Hesse's short writings. They display the full range of Hesse’s lifetime fascination with fantasy--as dream, fairy tale, satire, or allegory.

4-0 out of 5 stars Hesse hits again with short stories
Hesse has scored with this collection of fine short stories written over a span of fifty years.He explores various forms and aspects of fantasy with his classic style.The result is short metaphoric pieces that engage for a while and let the reader go.I was fully engaged and enjoyed almost every one.Highly recommended if you are a Hesse fan, which I am of forty years.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite books of short stories.
I love the the title story. It is filled with wisdom and laid out in such rich detail. He actually wrote these stories over a number of years and I liked seeing how time affected him in each one.

5-0 out of 5 stars A terrific introduction to Hesse
Hesse was an inveterate story writer and this collection is an excellent introduction to his work.Most of these tales are only a few pages long and even the longest can be completed in one sitting.They also span his entire career and give the reader a great overview of the author's style.

I recommend especially the title story, "Pictor's Metamorphoses":here a youth named Pictor wanders into a garden and finds a magic carbuncle which transforms him into a tree.But he realizes that his life his incomplete, and remains unhappy until a girl wanders into the same garden...

5-0 out of 5 stars MAGIC
this book has followed me throughout my life, and has never been topped by another. He was, and is, the author closest to my heart.

5-0 out of 5 stars Shows The Vast Range Of Writing Styles Of Hesse
This is a really good book. From the dreams he has as a young boy to the times after the war. A good book to read in between books. Most of the stories are short but there are some long ones too. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best biographies I have read, ever
This book is not only a very thorough biography of Hermann Hesse.

It is also one of the best biographies I have ever read. Among other things, it does a very impressive job of blending Hesse's life and work, explaining how precise parts of a given book were influenced with events in his life, and so on.

I do wish all biographies were as well researched, and as well written, as this one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Necessary for any serious student of Hermann Hesse
Ralph Freedman ranks with Joseph Mileck, Theodore Ziokowski, and Mark Boulby in his importance to Hesse scholarship.Freedman previously published an important study comparing the fiction of Virginia Woolf, Andre Gide, and Hesse.This biography is a standard against which any future biographies are likely to be judged, composed by a man who has studied the author for many years. ...

This volume offers a substantial portion of Hesse's copious writings and is representative of his fundamental themes and interests. Includes Siddhartha, Hesse's most celebrated work, which reflects his lifelong studies of Oriental myth and religion, Demian, an inner journey which had an unprecedented impact on the youth of its day, plus other writings which show Hesse as a master of self-irony and the short-story form. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Demian, in my own words
I feel that the novel Demian was a highly intellectual novel and very enlightening!It's like no other book I've read in which it's not your usual story of a boy growing up.It's about a boy growing up andquestioning his faith with the help of a boy named Demian who is aclassmate.Emil, the main character feels that Demian is the image inwhich he wants to be.He fantisizes about this image and will do anythingto be it.Demian helps Emil to break from his contious mind and enter hissubconcious.It is a wonderful book and I highly recommend in to anyphilosophy fans, or anybody at all. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Astonishing Collection
This selection of 23 stories (20 available in English for the first time) offers a spectrum of Hesse's writing from 1899 to 1948 that could be matched only by an edition of his poetry, since in no other form -- novel, essay, autobiographical reflection -- did he span so many years. Here, within the covers of a single volume, the reader can trace Hesse's development from the aestheticism of his youth through the realism and surrealism of the next decades to the classicism of his old age. And the reader who knows Hesse mainly through his major novels of the twenties and thirties will be surprised to encounter him in a variety of new incarnations. Yet the greatest surprise is to see how faithful he remained to his essential self from first to last. Even as he tests and discards literary modes, he consistently rejects external "reality" for the sake of an inner world created by imagination.

This obsession with expressing his own consciousness is paralleled by criticism of the world he is fleeing from. In the earliest stories, such critiques amount to an attempt to epater le bourgeois. Later, in stories like "The Homecoming," the malice and corruption of society are forcefully unmasked. In the parable "Harry, the Steppenwolf" (1928), Hesse even ridicules the attitude we recognize today as "radical chic."

But all his stories, as Hesse himself realized, are concerned primarily with his own secret dreams, his own bitter anguish. Stories of Five Decades, arranged in chronological order, is a rewarding display of the full range of this storytelling as it blossomed over a lifetime. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars CHARMING!
The book consists of six narrative poems describing beautiful scenes of nature.
Hesse takes you with him for his morning walk through his garden drawing a lively picture of his flowers, vegetables and trees. He describes the hard work and the time he, his wife, Natalina and Lorenzo put to make this garden one entity of beauty and care. You take every step with him up the hill... see every tree and feel the warm sun ...and even smell the burning leaves. Of course Hesse never forgets to comment on human nature and life!
Whether he was planting his tree, describing the broken bough, the pavilion or the fall wind blowing at the old man's face... each poem has its message of contentment, serenity and natural beauty.

"The Lame Boy" is a recollection of his childhood and his relationship with a crippled boy, a "comrade" who taught him patience and understanding nature but could never call a friend!! He remembers his summers with this boy, going fishing together, showing his weak body but revealing his true qualities as a person. He talks about how we judge people and comments on the way he looked at his friend and what he thinks of him now after all those years.

I enjoyed reading the poems and I read the book more than once. The description is sublime... and I couldn't believe the sense of calmness it had on me!! ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
Herman Hesse's introspective, lyrical writing won him praise from the literary world, while his sense of estrangement from industrialized civilization and endorsement of pacificism brought him wide popular approval. Winner of the Nobel Prize for The Glass Bead Game, Hesse renders life's callings in a way that has called readers to a renewed sense of purpose and possibility.

This series is edited by Harold Bloom, Sterling Professor of the Humanities, Yale University; Henry W. and Albert A. Berg Professor of English, New York University Graduate School. These text presents critical essays that reflect a variety of schools of criticism on the most important 20th-century criticism on major works from The Odyssey through modern literature. Each volume also contains an introductory essay by Harold Bloom, critical biographies, notes on the contributing critics, a chronology of the author's life, and an index. ... Read more
