Translated from the German by Denver Lindley; "Although he had won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1946, at tbe age of 69, Hermann Hesse remained a literary outsider until after his death in the 1960's, when he became a cult-hero of young Americans in revolt. Rarely have biography and art been more complexly interwoven than in the life and works of Hesse - inevitably his readers become as fascinated with the man and his dramatic spiritual crises as with the works themselves, Artistically, he was an uncompromising pioneer, giving always of himself. Yet it Is only now that English devotees can enjoy in Hesse's autobiographical writings some of his finest prose as well as finding the key to the enigmas of his fiction."; a well-read copy with bumped corners & wear to spine ends; candle-wax circular stain to front cover; marks to endpapers; list of Hesse's works opposite title page have been ticked in green pen (for which I must admit responsibility since this was originally my copy); inspiring quote in red ink to front e/p.; an unusual item; 291 pages.
