Hermann Hesse

Hermann Hesse was a German-Swiss poet, novelist, and painter. In 1946, he received the Nobel Prize in Literature. His best known works include Steppenwolf, Siddhartha, and The Glass Bead Game (also known as Magister Ludi) which explore an individual's search for spirituality outside society.In his time, Hesse was a popular and influential author in the German-speaking world; worldwide fame only came later. Hesse's first great novel, "Peter Camenzind", was received enthusiastically by young Germans desiring a different and more "natural" way of life at the time of great economic and technological progress in the country. Throughout Germany, many schools are named after him. In 1964, the Calwer Hermann-Hesse-Preis was founded, which is awarded every two years, alternately to a German-language literary journal or to the translator of Hesse's work to a foreign language. There is also a Hermann Hesse prize associated with the city of Karlsruhe,Germany.
years of life: 2 July 1877 9 August 1962

Quotes

Jose Chang Salazarhas quoted2 years ago
He real­ized that he was no youth any more, but had turned into a man. He real­ized that one thing had left him, as a snake is left by its old skin, that one thing no longer ex­is­ted in him, which had ac­com­pan­ied him through­out his youth and used to be a part of him: the wish to have teach­ers and to listen to teach­ings.
Jose Chang Salazarhas quoted2 years ago
“You are like me, you are dif­fer­ent from most people. You are Kamala, noth­ing else, and in­side of you, there is a peace and refuge, to which you can go at every hour of the day and be at home at your­self, as I can also do. Few people have this, and yet all could have it.”
Jose Chang Salazarhas quoted2 years ago
Like when someone, who has eaten and drunk far too much, vomits it back up again with ag­on­ising pain and is nev­er­the­less glad about the re­lief, thus this sleep­less man wished to free him­self of these pleas­ures, these habits and all of this point­less life and him­self, in an im­mense burst of dis­gust.
